Raspberry Spiked Chocolate Brownies

Over the last few weeks I have been hooked on brownies and blondies.  Each recipe I have made, I’ve thought it to be the winner.  However I think this combination of rich dark chocolate brownie with raspberries literally takes the cake (pun intended).  These are sensational, the brownie is so rich and chocolatey, and the raspberries are such a great contrast.  The centre is quite soft, and is GREAT warm with vanilla ice cream.  My little helper enjoyed licking the bowl…. I know just award me mother of the year now.

Chocolate Craving – Triple Chocolate Brownies

The boys and I are spending some time down in Victoria while we eagerly await the arrival of my sister’s first baby.  While we were enjoying some of our Mum’s chocolate cake for afternoon tea, in the time it took me to get my camera to take a photo, I lost a chunk of my piece to my sister.  I asked her since she was obviously craving chocolate, would she like some brownies for dessert.  An online search of the Donna Hay website found a chocolate brownie recipe.  To satisfy Tiff’s chocolate craving, I also added white and dark chocolate chips to the mixture.  We took the brownies out of the oven just before we had dinner, by the time we were ready for dessert, they were still nice and warm and went perfectly with vanilla ice cream.  If you are after a big chocolate hit, try these.  These brownies are so deliciously rich, you only need a small piece… as easy way to justify eating them warm with ice cream!
