I was in the event and loved your toppings.

My God, that looks like a great experience. I love the idea of balsamic in the brownies, to keep those berries from being…well, you know, just berries.

If (WHEN) you open the kiosk, call it Pie Street!

Ooh, I'm intrigued. I must make these sometime – bookmarked!

If memory serves, you introduced yourself to me right after I told you I thought those brownies were amazing (not knowing you made them). To be hontest, generally when I hear Strawberry, Balsamic, Chocolate my "played radar" kicks in. (playedar) However, those were my favorite "topping" of the night. Genuinely interesting, gooey, so good……

Has anyone heard of food orgasm? Am I the only who blushingly gets turned on by really, really good food? Try the brownies for yourself.
Thanks for the love on your blog. You have a great site! xo

Must must must must MUST have these brownies! From the first photo I was already sold, and then I read this!!



Mr. Jackhonky August 20, 2010 at 3:43 pm

@T-M-S. Thank you! Did we meet there? I met so many people. I'm glad that 18 Reasons held it. It was super fun!

@kudzu. Yes, I wanted to bake something that went with ice cream and that would be slightly seasonal, but just plain strawberries sound boring, so I decided on the balsamic (something I've been playing with on another recipe). It turned out to pair well with the chocolate fudge flavor of the brownies.

Also. I'm totally using your "Pie Street" idea. Brilliant. As always.

@SprinkleBakes Yay! Tell me what you think of them when you make them!

@Shameless James. I love that your playedar totally kicked in when you read the description, but that they still won you over. Despite becoming super trendy, balsamic and strawberry really do work so well together.

@clubdinein. I feel like I can't comment without going down some dirty route, so all I'm going to say is thank you! Club Dine In is awesome too!

@Rita. You must. You'll love them, especially since they some of your favorite flavors ever…


Stephanie August 21, 2010 at 4:49 am

Wow! I am so excited that I have everything in my house to make these this weekend.

I must admit to clubdinein that I might be a bit aroused at just the thought of these brownies 🙂


Melanie Kameko August 21, 2010 at 6:29 am

Great blog post and amazing pictures! And those brownies were SO GOOD!!! I really hope to see you at 18 Reasons soon!


Mr. Jackhonky August 21, 2010 at 8:54 am

@Stephanie. Isn't it awesome when you have everything in the house and you don't have to run to the grocery store for a special ingredient? You must make these and tell me how they are! They only have a 1/4 cup of all purpose flour, so you probably can substitute a non gluten flour with no adverse effect. Let me know what you think!

@Melanie. Thanks so much! I was super pleased to see your blog entry about it as well! I'm sure I'll see you at 18 Reasons in the up coming months. It's such a great venue!


Maria August 23, 2010 at 6:05 pm

I can't wait to try these brownies. They look amazing!


Kelsey August 23, 2010 at 11:03 pm

I love balsamic strawberries. I can't wait to try this recipe!


Mr. Jackhonky August 25, 2010 at 7:00 am

@Maria & Kelsey. Thank you! Let me know what you think of the brownies once you make them! They were a big hit at the event.


Stevie August 25, 2010 at 3:29 pm

Wow! That event looks super fun, almost as much fun as meeting you in person at Martuni's the other day. I love the brownie recipe and will try to make it soon, once the heat abates.


Marisa August 26, 2010 at 2:46 pm

LOVING the idea of an icecream social! Know what I'm going to be doing for my next birthday. 🙂


janet August 26, 2010 at 3:15 pm

This looks like an awesome recipe.. I love brownies with a twist. 🙂


Mr. Jackhonky August 29, 2010 at 7:00 am

@Stevie. It was super fun to meet you too! We plan on having a dessert party soon, I'll be sure to shoot you over an email about it. I'll probably have a variant of the brownies there…

@Marisa. It was SO fun. I can't wait for 18 Reasons to do another social of some sort. I heard rumors of a some sort of pie themed one… which I'm all over.

@Janet. Thank you! I feel like everyone has a recipe for brownies that they go to. I wanted to make something that was a little different AND that was a little seasons. Strawberries have been so good this summer…


Meredith September 1, 2010 at 4:07 pm

Oh man this looks delicious! Your pictures are gorgeous! Everything here looks so yummy!
I've recently launched my own blog, I'd love for you to check it out and tell me what you think 🙂 Thanks!


Anonymous December 13, 2010 at 9:05 pm

Hi, I'm making these right now. Am I supposed to use a nine inch square pan?


Mr. Jackhonky December 13, 2010 at 10:56 pm

@Meredith. Thank you! Your blog is super fun!

@Kelbel. Yes. You need a 9" x 9" square pan. Sorry about that. I'll be sure to clarify that in my post.


Anonymous December 14, 2010 at 2:03 am

You know what, after I had the batter made, it was evident that you must have meant a 9×9. A 9×13 would have made brownie crackers.

They turned out delicious!

You had me at hello…..balsamic, oh yeah! Bring it! Love what you have going! Cheers!

I made these brownies and brought them into work. My coworkers looked suspicious when I said the brownies had balsamic vinegar in them, but there were none left by the end of the day. An amazing combination!


Steven November 26, 2015 at 3:41 am

Hi…can frozen strawberries be used for this recipe if fresh are not available? Any alterations to the recipe as a result? Thanks!
