Favorite Ingredients Friday (Strawberry & Cream Cheese Fudge Brownies )

Yikes, it's Friday and I just realized I hadn't posted a recipe yet! Sorry for the delay. I've got the day off of work, but I was busy fixing breakfast with Snuggle Bug and getting ready to dash out the door to run errands. Whew, this is a busy time of the year!

Okay, it's time for another Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe exchange!

The recipe I'm about to share is off of the Duncan Hines website. I've made this just now for a Holiday party that we're attending today.

Sorry, I don't have time to fight Blogger to get the picture to post. Go check out the Duncan Hines link. :)

Strawberry & Cream Cheese Fudge Brownies


  1. 1 package Duncan Hines® Chewy Fudge Brownie Mix or Duncan Hines® Dark Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix
  2. 1 container Duncan Hines® Creamy Home-Style Cream Cheese Frosting
  3. 1/4 to 1/2 cup
    seedless strawberry jam


  1. Prepare and bake brownies according to package directions.
  2. Spread Duncan Hines Cream Cheese Frosting generously on cooled brownies.
  3. Shake squeezable strawberry jam well and squeeze in a zigzag pattern on top of frosting. (I actually put the jam in a pastry bag and made the pattern that way)
  4. From the red dough, shape one 1-inch ball and five 1/2-inch balls.
  5. For decorative effect, run a knife through the jam, in opposite directions.

Okay, time for me to dash off!

I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe! Don't forget to link your specific recipe post link on Mr. Linky so I can see what's cooking at your house!

Oh, and be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for me to go back and search for recipes as I build my weekly menu.

Woo hoo, I'm first. I'm never first. :o)

This recipe sounds fantastic. Years ago, I used to make a devil's food cake that I would fill with strawberry preserves. I think I'd really like this combination.
