Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Brownies make by far the BEST strawberry and chocolate combination. Fudgy and moist chocolate brownies topped with fresh strawberries and covered with a rich chocolate ganache will sure knock your socks off.

Who wouldn’t be impressed by strawberries? There is no fruit that is more attractive than strawberries. What is your favorite way of eating them? Although I love them fresh and as they are, I can never resist a chocolate strawberry combination or when they are topped on a lighter dessert like our strawberry cream cheese pie.
Using Fresh Strawberries
I’ve been planning to make chocolate-covered strawberry brownies since I discovered my passion about combining these super pretty looking berries with chocolate when I first made classic chocolate-dipped strawberries. These two can make any occasion so pleasing. Can you imagine how these strawberry brownies will become an awe-inspiring dessert for everyone you serve them to?
I love brownies. I adore strawberries covered with chocolate. Most of you do too. So how about combining these in one recipe that is sure to please everyone? There is no doubt, this is a decadent dessert. You will feel it once you have the first bite. If a slice of fudgy brownie with chunks of fresh strawberries covered with a silky layer of chocolate can not take you to heaven, I don’t know what can. Let’s face it, this is not one of those healthier desserts but it’s okay to spoil yourself once in a blue moon, right?
How To Make
- Bake the brownie of your choice. See ours below in the recipe section. Let it cool down completely. Slice the strawberries in two and place the sliced parts down on your newly baked and cooled brownie.
- Meanwhile prepare the chocolate ganache. Let it cool a bit and pour over the strawberries. Chill in the refrigerator for half an hour or until set.
- If you want to add even more chocolate in your brownies, add in some chocolate chips in the batter before pouring it in the pan. I think the amount of chocolate is enough when you consider the chocolate ganache on the top.
Can I Chop The Strawberries?
Yes, you can. This is recommended for too large strawberries. However, the brownies wouldn't have that fancy look. It is better to use small or medium sized strawberries and cut them in halves for this recipe.
Can I Make This Recipe With A Brownie Mix?
It would definitely be a shortcut. But if you love baking from scratch, use this recipe and make your own brownie mixture with real chocolate.
Can I Substitute Ready-To-Use Chocolate Sauce For Ganache?
Not recommended. I mean, it won't give the same silky feeling, so make your own chocolate ganache at home! Tastes way better! And super easy to make!
How To Store
Place the brownies in an airtight container in a single layer and keep them in the refrigerator up to 3 days. As these are made with fresh strawberries, it is not recommended to store them longer than this.
Alternative Fruit Ideas
I think you can use this method with any berries you like. I’m planning to try it with peaches when they are in season. Will definitely let you know. Other fruit ideas might be pineapples, oranges, clementines, pears and plums.

Made this today. Excellent concept and has the right proportions of ingredients, but if one is not careful, it can turn out to be VERY dry. It may take the 30-35 mins, but I urge everyone to check it before then so you don't overcook like I did. Also, it didn't seem to me that the ganache yield was enough. Chocolate was on the thick side having only added 4 T of heavy cream, so I added a bit more to thin it out. Flavor of all was very good, just consistency wasn't where I would have liked it to be. Thanks for the recipe. I'll tweak next time and see if it comes out better.
I am making these now, with my one bowl brownie recipe. I doubled it because I am bringing them to physical therapy tomorrow.
As an idea for other fruits.... raspberries with a dark chocolate ganache!!!! I will be doing coffee hour for church around Valentine's day, and that will be a perfect dessert (along with my cheesecakes, cinnamon rolls, mini Bundt cakes and quick breads, plus fresh fruit, a veggie platter, and cheese and crackers! We are the fellowship of the fork!!!)
I made these delicious brownies for my sister’s birthday and they were a delight! Thank you for all your recipes!
Hi Maggie! Glad you loved them! Happy birthday to your sister!

These were fabulous! I used a boxed brownie mix because I didn’t have a lot of time but they were still amazing. I took them to my Bible study for our snack today as I thought they would be a perfect Valentine’s Day treat. Everyone raved about them! I’ll definitely be making these again! The only change was that my ganache did not make enough to cover the strawberries, so I ended up doubling it.
I'm so happy to hear that Katie! Using brownie mix makes the things way easier. Thanks for sharing your feedback!
Hi I would like to make this recipe but I don’t know if it’s plain flour or self-raising flour the recipe just says flour. Ps the pictures look lovely
Thanks Fatima! I use plain flour for this recipe.
the photos of these brownies are amazing, but I'm a pretty experienced baker and I followed the recipe to a tee and they came out awful, like bad chocolate cake.. I just threw them in the bin instead of going forward with the strawberry chocolate ganache topping
Hi Molly! I'm sorry the recipe didn't work for you. What was the exact problem? Was it too gooey or dry? I'd love to help.
Tricia @ Saving Room for Dessert says
Such a wonderful, beautiful, drool-worthy dessert! I love the combination of strawberry and chocolate. Sharing and pinning!
Thank you so much Tricia! It's very kind of you!
These are simply stunning! My Goodness!!!!! Wow!
Thank you for these kind words my friend!
Kiwi fruit are in season here and I think will be a perfect alternative until the strawberry season
Hi Genny! Making these brownies with kiwi fruit is such a great idea! Thanks for sharing 🙂
Perfect timing as the strawberries in our markets are looking great! What beautiful brownies!
Thank you Liz! Glad you love them. I can add strawberries in anything these days.
