Hi guys! It’s Kelley back from Chef Savvy! Today I am sharing with you this Brownie Strawberry Shortcake!

Who doesn’t love strawberry shortcake especially when it’s made with chocolate! This Brownie Strawberry Shortcake is amazing! Super rich, fudgey and loaded with chocolate.

Let’s talk about how easy this recipe is. I used pre bought brownie mix + eggs + oil for the brownie base.

For the whipped topping I used fresh cream mixed with vanilla pudding mix. It is the perfect filling for this Brownie Strawberry Shortcake. Creamy, not too sweet with lots of vanilla flavor.

This recipe is a great way to use up extra strawberries. I layer strawberry halves on both layers of this Brownie Shortcake.

This Brownie Strawberry Shortcake is the perfect summertime dessert. Enjoy!
