Sponsor Shoutout: We have great sponsors for Spring Sweets Week! For today's recipe I used 3 great sponsors to create this recipe!


Adam's Extract: They provided me with their Adams Best, Vanilla, Lemon Extract and my favorite: Their all natural food coloring, to be used in recipes this week. Today I used Adams Best Vanilla and their all natural food coloring in today's recipe. I love their Vanilla, and their all natural food coloring. My daughter cannot consume synthetic red food dye, and when we first found Adams natural food coloring it changed everything in our baking! I just trust Adams Extract!


Nancy's Yogurt: Is a company with a simply motto: local milk, real ingredients, and live cultures- all crafted with care, from our family to yours. They provided me with free products for recipe development. I used their cream cheese. They also have yogurts, cottage cheese, and sour cream products. I love that they are loaded with probiotics too!
Sprinkle Pop: Has THE cutest and most varied and tempting line of candy sprinkles hands down! I just have the hardest time choosing which ones to choose from everytime I shop with them!! Today I am using their Sprinkles called CottonTail Confetti. but I also picked up a packet of their Green Tea Sprinkle Mix which has a wonderful blend of spring colors in just a beautiful hue!

  2. Place the pan on the lower rack of the oven.  bake for 40 minute or until set.  the top should be mainly pink but is ok if the edges are browned a little.
  3. Remove from oven, and cool on wire rack till it reaches room temperature. Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes , overnight is best. 
Topping
  1. melt the chocolate and butter in the microwave or in a double broiler. Once mixed and smooth,  spread over the top of the strawberry cheese cake layer, be sure to work quickly , since the brownies were chilled the chocolate will set quickly. 
  2. If using any candy sprinkles, sprinkle them on top of chocolate topping before it sets up.
  3. Once it sets, use the paper or foil  overhang flaps to carefully lift from pan and place on cutting board. peel back lining, and carefully cut into small squares or rectangles. Serve at room temperature, but store leftovers in the refrigerator.
