These brownies are outstanding! The raspberry underneath the rich chocolate frosting (more solid than frosting, really) is really a nice brownie to break the "same ol' same ol'" mode. I made a change to recipe that I liked and change I didn't like: 1. I added more raspberry filling thinking "What could be better than *more* raspberry filling?" but too much of it makes it so the frosting kind of slides off teh brownie and it's hard to slice them that way. So I'd go with the recipe and use 1/4 C next time. 2. I reduced the sugar to 1 2/3 cups and the brownies were perfectly sweet. I suspect you could reduce the sugar even more; but I wasn't that brave on a first try. I will absolutely make these again. I think they would be equally awesome with sweetened orange marmalade or other flavors that go well with chocolate (Nutella anyone?).
These are amazing! I followed all ingredients and directions to a T (except my microwave must be higher powered because it only took one minute for each microwave step). These are so good, I love the thickness of them and the raspberry with the rich chocolate frosting is to die for!
These brownies were incredible. I did modify the frosting because I didn't have semi-sweet baking squares or cream on hand. Instead, I used half a bag of chocolate chips and sour cream, which provided a nice tanginess. I took the brownies to two different parties for Memorial Day weekend, and everyone devoured them! They are best if you leave them out of the fridge to warm up/soften before serving.
