Hello Everyone! Sorry it's been a little while but life got a little crazy. I will try to post as often as I can, I definitely plan on doing a lot more food posts in the near future, and hopefully warmer weather will come and I can do some more furniture DIY's. Anyway, in today's DIY I am going to show you how to make a Raspberry Fudge Brownie. This brownie is super dense and decadent so a little goes a long way in terms of serving size. I decided to make this decadent dessert since my boyfriend and I wanted something sweet to go with a Merlot wine, naturally a good pairing for a Merlot is dark chocolate and berries, so why not combine the two? Let's get started.
• 2 cups of flour (pre sifted)
• 10 oz of dark chocolate (I used 78%)
• 3 eggs
• 1 cup of sugar
• 3.5 oz of raspberry jam
• ½ cup of cocoa powder
• ½ cup of butter
• 6 ox of raspberries
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. The nice thing about this is once you've prepared your batter, your oven is ready.
2. Make a double boiler. If you aren't sure about what this is, it's simply about 1-2 inches of water boiling in a pot, with a bowl or cup floating above it. Make sure that it's not touching the water. We used this method for our candle wax as well.
3. Add your chocolate and your butter to your bowl and begin to mix slowly. Be sure to mix carefully and constantly, chocolate is extremely easy to burn. Do this until your mixture is smooth.
4. Add in your sugar, cocoa powder, eggs, raspberries and jam, making sure to stir in each ingredient one at a time.
5. Slowly add your flour and mix until mixture is all saturated.
6. Pour your mixture into an 8-inch pan (grease it with butter lightly before).
7. Smooth out your mixture with a spatula to make sure its roughly even.
8. Place mixture in the oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes. A toothpick should come out relatively clean once its finished.
9. Let sit for about 10 minutes and serve!
We topped ours with vanilla ice cream, hot fudge and fresh raspberries which made it super decadent and to die for.
