Fudgy Raspberry Brownies – homemade chocolate brownies with pie filling swirl. Fudgy and sweet and irresistible!
Raspberries and chocolate make a fabulous combo, I hope you agree. You get the slight tang of the berries followed but decadent sweetness of chocolate. I love it! It’s so so good! These brownies are like superheros! They will hit just the right spot when craving for chocolate that just melts in your mouth hits all of a sudden. You need this recipe in your recipe box!
So how did these happen? I had about 3/4 of a cup of raspberry filling leftover from these delightful trifles, and wanted to use it in something as wonderful. And because it’s been a while since we talked about brownies (months perhaps?), I thought it would be great to marry these two together.
The brownie recipe is my new favorite. I made it with simple goals in mind: I wanted it to be utterly chocolatey and super fudgy! And I got both! It’s a keeper! These brownies will make you reach for a huge glass of milk – they are so rich and fudgy!
The ribbons of raspberry filling create sort of a glaze on the surface. You could certainly use raspberry jam in it’s place with fantastic results.
