Raspberry Brownies

Here is another play on my base Best Brownies Ever recipe. Instead of walnuts, I added whole raspberries for a tart and juicy surprise in the middle.

Rasperry Brownies

I’ll admit it’s not a revolutionary pairing — chocolate and raspberry — but it’s a great one. Timely too, especially since it’s berry season.

Again, I used my Wilton silicone brownie mold for bite-sized pieces, halved the recipe and plopped halved raspberries in each cavity. Feel free to use the original recipe in an 8-inch pan and just dot the brownie with whole raspberries.

For such a tiny substitution, the flavour payoff is ridiculous. It’s rich chocolate cut through with sharp tasting berries. Quite sophisticated tasting, actually.

I loved this pairing so much that I made one for a friend’s wedding gift. I baked a whole brownie off, studded with raspberries, in a tiny heart-shaped tart pan.

With summer upon us and berries in season, this no-brainer raspberry mousse should be on your list of summer desserts to make. This fluffy cloud of pinkness is a treat all on its own, or use it as a cake filling as I have in the picture below:

The recipe is mostly dumping a whole load of ingredients in a pot and boiling away, but there is method to the madness, so be sure to check out the directions after the jump.

Nutella & Salted Caramel Tart

There’s just something to evocative about the pairing of salt and sweet, none more so than in salted caramel.

Combine that with the chocolate-hazelnut goodness that is Nutella, and you have a dangerously delicious ménage à trois.
