If you’re looking for a special dessert for Valentines Day, this is it. Your sweetie will love you for making this!
The raspberry filling dresses up the brownies. Chocolate and raspberry mingle so well together. A scoop of vanilla ice cream with extra raspberry sauce adds decadence.
As a side note, I think I could use some food styling help. I sprinkled cocoa powder on the white plate and set the brownie in the middle. So far, so good. A round scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on top of the brownie. And then I warmed the raspberry sauce and spooned it over the top. Instead of drizzling down the ice cream in rivulets, it melted the ice cream and slid off in an un-pretty way.
Oh well. Once we dug our spoons in, it didn’t matter how pretty it looked. It tasted divine!
Here’s what you’ll need to make them:
This recipe is a one bowl brownie that uses cocoa powder instead of baking chocolate. I found it here, but I doubled the recipe. The idea for filling the brownies with raspberry filling came from the back of the Comstock pie filling can.

Oh my, you’re just killing me. That looks wonderful 🙂
l love those flavors together. Tomorrow for Chocolate Friday I’m posting a raspberry Ho-Ho like cake.
And on the food styling… what if you scoop the ice cream and freeze the ball. Maybe it wouldn’t melt so much when you put the sauce on it? Just a thought.
Kristal, raspberry ho-ho cake sounds wonderful! And I think you’re right about the ice cream. I thought of that after it was too late. Live and learn. Eat and enjoy!

Inspired by this post I went ahead and made these brownies.
They are delicious, soft and moist.
I posted on my blog (with a link back here) and posted a pic of my brownies (not quite as picturesque as yours).
