"These moist chocolate brownies are topped with a rich fudge layer and a fluffy raspberry cream cheese frosting. To make them even prettier, I like to garnish them with chocolate curls."

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line an 8 inch square baking pan with aluminum foil.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the sugar, 2 whole eggs, and vanilla until combined. Mix in butter. In another bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt; stir into butter mixture, mixing just until incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs attached, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool pan on wire rack.
  4. Whisk together the evaporated milk and egg yolk in a small saucepan. Heat over medium low, stirring constantly, until the mixture is very hot and thickens slightly; do not boil. Place the 4 ounces of chopped semisweet chocolate in a medium bowl, and slowly pour in the hot milk. Stir until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Pour the filling over the cooled brownies; refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.
  5. Beat the cream cheese with the raspberry jam in a large bowl until smooth. Fold in the whipped topping, and add the food coloring if desired. Top the cooled brownies with the frosting, using a cake comb to create a design. Cut brownies into 16 squares, then cut each square in half diagonally to form triangles. Garnish with chocolate curls if desired.

This chewy "blondie" is still plenty chocolatey, thanks to the chips on top.

Sinfully rich, over the top delicious, oh so chocolately, and absolutely fabulous! I mean to try to describe these brownies using just one word may be virtually impossible, just as impossible as it is to eat just one of these brownies- yes, they're that good. If you're a self proclaimed chocoholic or have ever been accused of being one this is the brownie for you. They are definitely worth the time it takes to make these. I followed the recipe exactly and kept thinking, "Will this be enough?". But, these are so rich that the recipe yield is perfect. I highly recommend using the foil liner in the pan. I used Reynold's non-stick and I also highly recommend rinsing/wiping down your knife between each slice when cutting your brownies. The raspberry is awesome, but I might try using chocolate syrup or even some Bailey's next time to change it up. Another hit right out of the park - Thanks larkspur for another great recipe!

I just finished making these and they are delicious! I don't have good luck with chocolate curls, so I melted the chocolate and made chocolate hearts for Valentine's Day. I froze them to harden and set them on the frosting. They look awesome! My recommendation is to remove the brownies to a cutting board for cutting, and be sure to wipe the knife off after each cut. The fudge topping tends to gum up the knife, so this makes cutting easier and the finished result picture perfect!! Thanks for a keeper - I will definitely be making these again.


VERY good! I did make a few slight changes, but that was only because I was trying to use what I had around the house. Instead of raspberry jam I used cherry preserves & it turned out very yummy. Also, I added a little extra vanilla. The only other adjustment that I made was using milk chocolate chips instead of the mini chocolate chips (again, trying to use what I had around). Very rich! Next time I may try adding a bit more preserves/jam to the mix or omit the chocolate chips in order to have a lighter brownie that showcased the fruit flavor a little more. The suggestion for wetting your knife between slices was very useful or else I would have had a mess on my hands. Thank you Larkspur for submitting such a creative & tasty recipe!
