Experience the ultimate dessert with Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Brownies. This recipe combines the classic elegance of chocolate-dipped strawberries with the indulgent, rich texture of fudgy brownies, all topped with a silky-smooth chocolate ganache. It’s a perfect treat for special occasions, romantic evenings, or anytime you crave a chocolatey delight.


For the Brownies:
  • 1 box of your favorite brownie mix (plus required ingredients typically eggs, oil, and water)
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries, stems removed and halved
For the Ganache:
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips or a high-quality chocolate bar, chopped
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream


  1. Brownie Base:
    • Prepare the brownie mix according to the package instructions using an 8×8 square baking dish. Follow the steps on the box for mixing in eggs, oil, and water.
    • After baking, allow the brownies to cool completely in the pan set on a wire rack. This ensures the ganache will spread easily and not melt into the warm brownies.
  2. Strawberry Layer:
    • Once the brownies are cool, arrange the halved strawberries over the brownie layer, cut side down. This creates a vibrant, juicy red layer that complements the rich chocolate.
  3. Chocolate Ganache:
    • In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream over medium heat until it is steaming but not boiling.
    • Place the chocolate chips or chopped chocolate bar in a glass bowl. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate, then cover the bowl with a lid or plate. Let it sit for 5 minutes to allow the chocolate to melt.
    • Uncover and whisk the mixture until smooth and glossy. This ganache should have a thick, pourable consistency.
    • Pour the ganache over the arranged strawberries, using a spatula to spread it evenly so that it covers all the strawberries and fills the spaces between them.
  4. Chill:
    • Refrigerate the ganache-topped brownies for 15-30 minutes, or until the ganache is set. This makes the brownies easier to slice and serve.
  5. Serve:
    • Use a hot knife (warmed under hot water and dried) to slice the brownies into squares. This ensures clean cuts through the ganache and strawberries.
    • Serve immediately or keep refrigerated until ready to serve. These brownies are best enjoyed the day they are made to maintain the freshness of the strawberries.


  • Parchment Paper: Line your baking dish with parchment paper before adding the brownie batter. This makes it easier to lift out the brownies once cooled and simplifies slicing.
  • Don’t Overbake: Keep an eye on your brownies as they bake. Removing them from the oven while slightly underdone will ensure they stay moist and fudgy.
  • Serving Suggestion: Elevate this dessert by serving it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream, enhancing the luxuriousness of the dessert.

Whether you’re looking to impress guests at a gathering or simply treating yourself to a decadent dessert, these brownies promise satisfaction with every bite.
