Strawberry Cheesecake Brownies

As you may know, I have a little secret… I love boxed brownie mix.  I know, I should be fancier than that but man, something about the consistency and perfection that is boxed brownies just can’t be beat in my book.  I love using it as a base for fun brownie recipe like this where honestly, I don’t think I could tell if I wasn’t told that the brownie batter in it wasn’t from scratch!

For this recipe, I did a fun spin on my raspberry cheesecake brownies and turned them into strawberry cheesecake brownies! I used boxed brownie mix, a homemade cheesecake layer (just 3 simple ingredients), and a swirl of strawberry jam.  You most definitely could use your favorite brownie recipe as the base if you prefer that, it will totally still work.

I think this recipe is such a perfect combination of brownies, cheesecake, and strawberries.  This is a dessert that would be great for Valentine’s Day or as a simple dessert recipe to impress friends or family with!
