1. Preheat the oven to 350℉. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper, or spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

2. Add the chopped butter and semi-sweet chocolate to a large microwave safe mixing bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring often, until the butter and chocolate have melted.

4. Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan. Top with the remaining halved strawberries.

5. Bake the brownies for 30 minutes, or until the edges have set but the center is still slightly soft.
