Chocolate Strawberry Brownies Tutorial

A delicious twist on a plain boxed brownie. Use any flavor preserves or jam you want. It makes a great potluck dessert or gift.

Chocolate Strawberry Brownies


2/3 cup of strawberry preserves
1 (21 oz) box brownie mix ( I used Duncan Hines Chewy Fudge)
3 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
1 cup white chocolate chips, melted
1/2 cup sliced almonds

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In your stand mixer (or in a bowl and hand mixing) combine the brownie mix, eggs, vegetable oil, and water. Beat on medium speed for 1 minute.

Step 2

While the batter is mixing, microwave the preserves in a bowl for 40-50 seconds until it's pourable.

Step 3

Pour the brownie batter into a parchment paper or greased 9X13 pan.

Step 4

Pour the preserves over the brownie mix.

Step 5

Using a butter knife or spatula, swirl the jam into the brownie mix.

Step 6

Bake at 375 degrees 27-30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean..

Step 7

Once you take the brownies out of the oven, melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave in a bowl, heating in 30 second intervals and stirring until it's melted. Drizzle over the top of the brownies and sprinkle with almonds. Let cool completely and cut.
