    • 1/2 c butter melted then cooled
    • 1 c granulated sugar
    • 1/3 c unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 1/2 c all-purpose flour
    • 1/4 tsp. salt
    • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 tsp. vanilla
    1. Melt butter and set aside to cool slightly.
    2. Sift together all dry ingredients in a medium bowl. (You may need to sift twice)
    3. Place into a jar or airtight container.
    4. In a small bowl, beat two eggs with the vanilla. Pour into dry ingredients and gently stir.
    5. Pour the melted butter into brownie mixture and mix until just incorporated.
    6. Spread batter in a prepared 9-inch cake pan and bake for 22-25 minutes at 350 degrees.

    You won't believe how easy this is!

    Prepare brownies and allow to cool to room temperature.

    Cut brownies into equal sections. Spread simple syrup along the edges of the cut brownie. (This will help to keep the dessert moist.)

    Set brownie on plate and place a few strawberries on top. Cover in about 1/4 cup of whipped cream.

    Repeat this process. You can either make a 3 or 4 layer brownie stack. If you choose to make it 3 layers you can chop up the 4th layer into small bits and sprinkle on top of the finished stack.

    Place remaining strawberries on top. Cover with chopped brownie. Drizzle chocolate sauce. Dust with confectioners sugar if you would like!
