I have a problem with brownies.
I love them. The boxed kind are my fave.
Crazy easy, awesomely delicious.
So here's another installment of a dessert made from a brownie mix. It's a brownie topped with a cream cheese mixture and fresh fruit.
You'll have to let me know what you think.
I think the best part is that you get to put hot fudge over the whole thing.
Brownie Fruit Tart
1 box brownie mix (you want fudgy brownies that say on the box that it makes a 9x13 pan), baked according to package directions in a 9x13 inch baking dish
8 oz. cream cheese
8 oz. can crushed pineapple, drained
2 T powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla paste (or extract)
3 bananas, sliced
1 lb. strawberries, hulled and sliced thin
Hot fudge sauce
Bake the brownies (not too long! We want them fudgy) and cool completely. Cream together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla and crushed pineapple. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the brownie evenly. Top with bananas and strawberries. Before serving, heat the hot fudge sauce and drizzle it over the whole thing.
