  • 1 quart fresh strawberries hulled and cubed
  • 2 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 18 oz box double chocolate brownie mix, plus ingredients to prepare i.e. Ghiradelli
  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream
  • cup granulated sugar may adjust to taste
  • 1 16 oz jar chocolate fudge sauce, warmed (Or, chocolate syrup)


  • Preheat the oven to 325°F. Spritz 9 cups of a standard muffin tin with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Prepare brownie mix using amounts called for on the package for water, oil and eggs. Add to a medium-size mixing bowl. Mix using an electric mixer or by hand, until fully combined.
  • Divide brownie batter filling muffin cups approximately ⅔ full. (Note: Yield may vary slightly depending on how the batter is divided.)
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center shows moist crumbs. Remove to a cooling rack. Cool in the pan to warm, then carefully remove.
  • Meanwhile, toss strawberries with granulated sugar, gently stir and allow the strawberries to macerate. Chill until assembling.
  • Using an electric mixer, whip cream on medium-high gradually adding sugar. Whip until stiff peaks form, then chill until assembling.
  • To assemble, place one brownie cupcake on a serving plate. Top with sweetened fresh whipped cream and cubed strawberries. Drizzle with chocolate sauce. Top with an additional dollop of whipped cream. Garish with one whole strawberry.
  • Serve immediately.


  • If you'd prefer to make the brownies from scratch, checkout my recipe for Ultimate Fudge Brownies.
  • I find these cupcakes bake better at a lower temperature when using Ghiradelli brand. That could vary if using a different brand of brownies. Adapt as needed.
  • Yield may vary depending on how you divide the brownie batter.
