A funny fact about hubby and me: in all of our married life (almost 5 years) our shelves have never once been devoid of brownie mixes. We just love them. I've never made a from-scratch brownie recipe that I loved as much as boxed ones. They're so good, and they seem to keep getting better.

For this post I tried out one of Nestle Toll House's new premium baking mixes and it is bomb-diggity guys. No artificial colors or flavors, and just the way I like my brownies: dense, moist, and suuuuper chocolate-y. As soon as I saw how thick the batter was I knew it was gonna be good.

As you can imagine, over the course of the last five years we've made a LOT of brownies. And a lot of variations on them. Some of our favorite variations are melted mint, chocolate-toffee, and I played around in my kitchen a bit to create a new favorite: strawberry shortcake. My goodness I love easy recipes that dress up well, and these brownies are so versatile. These chocolate monsters are topped with fresh stewed strawberries, crumbly topping, and of course whipped cream for a summer-y bite. I love how they turned out.

I picked up all four of their new baking mixes, so there will be more experimenting going on in my kitchen in the future. You can grab all of them at Walmart: Brownies & More with Chocolate Morsels, Brownies & More with Butterfingers, Cookies & More with Chocolate Morsels, and Cookies & More with Butterfingers. Check out some more blogger recipes HERE, and Nestle's recipes HERE. Do you guys have a favorite way to dress up your baking mixes?

Strawberry Shortcake Brownies
Makes one 8x8 pan

Brownies:
  • 1 box NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Brownies & More Baking Mix with Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 3 Tbsp water, divided
Strawberries:
  • 1 pint strawberries, hulled and quartered + extra for garnish (opt.)
  • 2-4 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 3 Tbsp water
Topping:
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 5 Tbsp cold butter, chopped 
  • whipped cream

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325F. Grease a brownie pan or 8x8 pan and set aside.

For strawberries:
Place all ingredients into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower to med-low and let cook for 8-10 minutes. As it's cooking, taste the syrup and add more sugar if desired. You should end up with tender, intact strawberries inside of a syrup. 

For the topping:
Place all of your ingredients into a food processor. Pulse until combined. You want a coarse, crumbly texture. 

Make brownie mix according to instructions on the box, but add the chocolate morsels all at once into the batter. Pour the batter into your greased pan. Use a small strainer or slotted spoon to spread your stewed strawberries on top, reserving the syrup. Save any leftover strawberries and syrup for later. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the strawberries. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Let cool slightly. 

When ready to serve, drizzle with leftover strawberry syrup and top with whipped cream and fresh berries.
