Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Brownies

YIELDS: 16 Squares

INGREDIENTS:

Brownies:

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup quartered strawberries

Ganache:

  • 9 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line an 8-inch square baking dish with parchment paper. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda; set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, stir together melted butter and cocoa powder until smooth and glossy. Whisk in both sugars. Add the eggs, one at a time, and vanilla, stirring until fully incorporated. Switch to a wooden spoon and stir in the dry ingredients, followed by the chocolate chips.

3. Pour batter into the prepared baking dish and bake for 25-28 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.

4. To make the ganache, place chocolate chips in a medium bowl. Pour heavy cream into a microwave-safe dish/glass measuring cup and heat in the microwave until it begins to boil. Pour hot cream over chocolate chips, cover with plastic wrap and allow to sit 3-5 minutes. Remove plastic wrap and whisk until smooth. Allow to cool 10 minutes.

5. To assemble, pour half of the ganache on top of the brownies and smooth out with a knife or offset spatula. Evenly scatter strawberries on top, then drizzle the rest of the ganache over the strawberries. Refrigerate until ganache is mostly set, about 45-60 minutes.
