Strawberry Peach Cheesecake Brownies

Yes, you read that right: strawberry peach cheesecake brownies. I know it’s a lot of calories, but this is a decision you won’t regret. Imagine taking a cheesecake topped with fresh ripe peaches and smashing it into a pan of brownies. Then add strawberries just to make it a little extra pretty. Now imagine it’s still warm from the oven. Now imagine that this recipe isn’t really much harder than whipping up a pan of brownies from scratch. Okay, that is enough temptation. As a side note, this is a great way to use up strawberries that are still edible, but slightly past their prime.
