Strawberry Cheesecake Brownies. These homemade brownies are loaded up with a layer of creamy cheesecake then swirled with a sweet strawberry sauce for a pop of color and flavor! Spoon the extra strawberry sauce over the top for an extra special dessert!
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I thought these Strawberry Cheesecake Brownies would be an appropriate way to celebrate the day. Just a little something I made to show you how much I care.
To be honest this recipe was a labor of love. It took me a couple of tries to get it just right. I tried combining cheesecake with brownies in different ways. I tried making a strawberry cheesecake with real strawberries and ended up with a rather unpleasant pink muddy colored cheesecake. I tried swirling cheesecake into the brownie and ended up with a weird cheesecake/brownie texture that just did not make me feel the love.
But persistence and my desire to share nothing but the best with you led to these beauties right here.
Because let’s be honest. If we’re going to spend the time baking, we want the end product to be so mouthwateringly decadent and delicious. Right?
Which is exactly what these strawberry cheesecake brownies deliver.
Baking the brownies a bit before adding the cheesecake helps to make those perfect layers. Not that my layers are perfect…some food photographers get those perfect layers. I have layer envy. Something I’m working on.
The strawberry swirl is made with my homemade strawberry sauce. Just strain the berry chunks out of the sauce you’re using in the swirl. Then pour the juice you don’t use back into the berries and generously pour that sauce all over the top of the cheesecake brownies when you’re ready to serve. Because you can. And because you love yourself and you love whoever you’re choosing to share these with. And because that is what life and dessert is all about.
