Ingredients

STRAWBERRY & CHOCOLATE BROWNIES:

1/4 c
chocolate (i used left over chocolate candies, otherwise just a break a bar down until you have about ½ cup)
1 Tbsp
butter
2 Tbsp
canola oil
1/2 c
white sugar
1/2 c
dark brown sugar
2
eggs
1/4 c
strawberry jam (recipe as follows)
1 c
flour
1/4 c
dark chocolate chips
1/4 c
dried cranberries

HOMEMADE STRAWBERRY JAM:

1/2 c
fresh or frozen strawberries
3 Tbsp
sugar, divided

Step-By-Step

1In a small saucepan, boil down strawberries and 2 tablespoons of sugar for homemade jam. This will take about 8-10 minutes. Once the fruit has boiled down and thickened remove at once and transfer to a glass bowl. Stir in one more tablespoon of sugar and set aside to cool down completely.
2Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Line an 8-inch glass dish with parchment paper coming up the sides. Butter the parchment paper and set aside.
3In a small bowl, melt down chocolate and butter. Once melted stir in canola oil and sugars. If the mixture is still hot, let it sit for a few minutes to cool a bit before adding the eggs.
4Add eggs, stirring after each. Add homemade jam and flour. Fold in chocolate chips and cranberries.
5Pour batter into lined baking dish and bake for about 25 minutes.
6Lift brownies out of baking dish immediately and transfer to a wire rack to let cool completely before slicing.

If desired, serve with a dollop of whipped cream and a cup of coffee.
