These Strawberry Swirl Brownies are easy to make, loaded with fudge brownie goodness, plus tasty strawberry swirled throughout! Each and every bite is as addictive as can be, making these incredibly delicious brownies hard to resist!
1.55ozchocolate bar(optional (milk chocolate or semi-sweet) - grated, up to 2 ounces)
1cupstrawberry jam(jam, jelly, or preserves)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and lightly coat or spray a 9x13 baking pan with oil or non-stick spray. Line your pan with parchment paper if desired (for easy removal of the brownies).
In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of your stand mixer, combine the 1 cup melted butter with 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, 1 ¼ cups granulated sugar, 1 cup packed light brown sugar, and ¼ teaspoon salt.
Stir to combine, then add the 4 large eggs, 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract, and 1 tablespoon of the optional strong brewed coffee.
Add the 1 cup each of all-purpose flour and unsweetened cocoa powder by sifting them into your bowl of wet ingredients. Fold the wet and dry ingredients together until just combined (do not over-mix the batter).
Fold in the optional grated chocolate (cut pieces or chocolate chunks work too).
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 35-40 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out without wet batter clinging to it. *Your toothpick will have plenty of brownie on it. The brownies will continue to set while cooling.
Remove the brownies from the oven when done and allow to cool in the pan for at least 15 minutes before removing to a cooling rack, or slicing and serving.
Baking the brownies for 30 minutes yields a very fudgy brownie. Allow more time for the brownies to 'set' during cooling.Baking the brownies for 40 minutes, possibly a few more minutes, yields a firmer brownie with a more cake-like consistency.
