Swirls of strawberry pie filling, creamy cheesecake, and fudgy brownies makes these Strawberry Cheesecake Brownies the best kind of dessert.
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 absolute happiest.
I have a serious weakness for Homemade Brownies.
Chocolate brownies, mint brownies, blonde brownies, fudge brownies, cheesecake brownies, candy brownies...you get the point, right?
I love me some brownies!!! A pan of fudgy brownies doesn't stand a chance around me.
So, of course when I was asked to make dessert for a lunch yesterday, my mind went right to cheesecake brownies.
I make them all the time, but usually with a different twist each time. It's true...I rarely make the same dessert twice.
Well, except for these Ultimate Reese's Cheesecake Brownies. Those do happen a little more often because they are stinking amazing!
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 that ingredient just 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 make these Strawberry Cheesecake Brownies definitely a beach worthy dessert.
Or Monday worthy... or anytime of the week worthy!
Go ahead and make a pan of these strawberry cheesecake brownies, and sit outside with a huge slice and some coffee. You will hear waves crashing in no time!

Absolutely scrumptious! I'll be featuring your recipe on FB tomorrow. In the meantime, I wanted to thank you for your golden oreo brownie recipe (with the Reese's Pieces). I made them for my daughter's year-end Girl Scout celebration and they were a huge hit!

I love the flavor combination! Thanks so much for sharing at Mix it up Monday 🙂

Seriously How good do these look?!?!

Boy, you're fast! I went back to the recipe to see how long to cool it, and thought I'd gone crazy! It looks heavenly, the 'cool-down' time is waaay too long, though - I may have to cheat a bit 🙂
Sorry for the typo in the recipe. Yes the egg goes in with the milk. I made the change in the recipe:-)
Just one quick question -- when do you add the egg? I put it in with the milk and rum extract, and it looks like it's going to be fantastic! It's in the oven, and I can hardly wait!!
I can't get enough coconut lately, and this is the best way I've seen to use it yet! Such a perfect dessert pairing 🙂

I'm a brownies girl too. Whenever I've had a really bad day and crave chocolate? It's a gooey brownie I want. Especially one like this, with a topping so the brownies are even gooier. The strawberry cheesecake looks heavenly, and coconut? Come on, you had me at that.
Holy flavor! This looks soooo good. I love cheesecake on hot days AND you made it coconut!? I love you.
You are too much for me this morning! All of a sudden the coconut milk on my cereal isn't exactly satisfying that tropical urge you're talking about 🙂 When I saw your Instagram pic the other day, I thought 'yum, strawberry cheesecake' I should have known that you'd have another delicious layer underneath!
