I am not a huge lover of fruit in my desserts. I really love fruit on it’s own, but I prefer my dessert to be chocolate. Pure, unadulterated chocolate.

One of the few exceptions is strawberries and chocolate. I love these two together! These Strawberry Cream Filled Brownie Cups have such a divine contrast of textures and flavors. I just had to share these with you! But first a confession…

These photos are from nearly a year ago.

*ahem*

This was one of the first recipes I photographed to share on my brand new blog :)  Turns out I went a little crazy in the kitchen, and I have dozens and DOZENS of photos and recipes from last year that I have still not gotten around to sharing with you! I wonder if that has anything to do with my life being ridiculously busy?? ;)  I know these are not the best pictures, but please don’t hold that against the dessert! These little cups are incredibly delicious!!

Anyway, back to the Strawberry Cream Filled Brownie Cups. I used my go-to brownie recipe because it’s the best. Why mess with the best? If you like rich, fudgy, easy brownies – make these! You will love them!

The strawberry cream is luscious. Ugh. It’s almost like a super light cheesecake. Cool, creamy, fruity, and not too sweet. It’s the perfect balance with the rich chocolate brownie! One bite will make you swoon! Just ask my hubby :)
