There is nothing I love more than a good brownie!  My grandma made the most amazing fudgy brownies, so I thought I would try to make them even tastier by adding a strawberry cream cheese frosting!

    Love the idea. But the brownies were dry as can be! Next time I’ll stick with my recipe. Also I added 1 1/2 table spoons of strawberry instant jello to give it more strawberry flavor to the frosting. Def a keeper

  2. Dan says

    Made these exactly by the recipe and, just like Christina, they turned out very dry. I think the mistake was putting it in a 9×13 pan, it should be made in a sheet cake pan. It didn’t have brownie consistency. The cake was dense and dry, not very appealing. Also the frosting was WAY to thick for the brownie, will not be making this recipe again.
