These Strawberry Cheesecake Brownies are one of my favorites brownies to bring to a party.
Do you have a go to dessert?
You know the one that you make when time is short.
The one you make when you are craving something sweet.
Or the one you make when life is rough.
The one that you think of first.
The dessert that makes you the happiest.
I have a serious weakness for brownies.
Chocolate brownies, mint brownies, blonde brownies, fudge brownies,
cheesecake brownies, candy brownies…
You get the point right.
I love me some brownies:-)
So of course when asked to make dessert for lunch yesterday,
my mind went right to cheesecake brownies.
I make them all the time
but usually with a different version each time.
With summer right around the corner,
(I still can’t believe the kids only have 2 weeks left of school)
I wanted a summery blend that said beach.
Strawberry says summer.
Coconut says beach.
Adding coconut to any dessert is my quick fix for “summer like” desserts.
For some reason it screams “tropics” to me.
Just try closing your eyes when eating a coconut dessert,
and you can almost imagine yourself on the beach
with the wind blowing through your hair.
I ate so many coconut desserts last summer in St. Maarten…
it’s definitely a tropical favorite.
Chocolate, rum, strawberry, and coconut…
these are definitely beach worthy.
Or Monday worthy…
or anytime of the week worthy:-)
Go ahead and make these,
and sit outside with a huge slice.
You will hear waves crashing in no time!
