Learn how to make Raspberry and Chocolate Brownies and your taste buds will thank you for it. This one is for you Chocoholics.
My name is Mihaela and I am a Chocoholic.
With all the healthy diets that I study daily (and advocate for), and with all the healthy ingredients I use when cooking, I just can’t say No to chocolate.
But in my defense, who can?
If somebody can say No to chocolate he has to be out of this world.
Everything started yesterday. After a long period of going to the gym and keeping a healthy diet, … I caved. While making a healthy chicken salad, a dessert craving punched me in the stomach.
I was like ‘Ok, the salad sounds great but afterward, I really need to have a sweet, decadent dessert. One that must have Chocohol :). ‘
Now, if you’ve got to this page you are probably in the same situation I was yesterday. You are either a chocoholic or simply trying to find delicious dessert ideas. Either way, stick around and I’ll help you with that.
So I started browsing through all my saved dessert recipes and guess what I found?
A delicious and easy chocolate brownies recipe.

And I like to be creative, so I thought it wouldn’t hurt to give it a fresh fruity flavor. Good thing I had a few raspberries in the fridge for that. I also found some dark chocolate left in the cupboard from when I made the Banana Bread
Everything was falling into place. There was only a tiny problem…
How do you make chocolate brownies with raspberries?
I didn’t have a clue about how to make chocolate brownies. I never made them before and truth be told I wasn’t in the mood for cooking a messy dessert that would turn my whole kitchen upside down.
But a strong gal never runs away from a ‘kitchen fight’ especially when the prize is raspberry and chocolate brownies.
Having all ingredients handy, I was ready to rumble… learn how to make brownies, of course 🙂
So I started by melting the chocolate and butter in a pan. So far so good, I didn’t burn anything 🙂 , no need to worry here.
You can melt it in the microwave if you want to do it faster, but since I am not a big fan of it I went with the hob. Regardless of where you choose to melt it, keep in mind that you have to stir occasionally otherwise it will get burnt.
I then poured the mixture into a large bowl, added eggs, vanilla essence and brown sugar. I sifted flour over it and whisked until I got a smooth batter.
At this point, the job was nearly done. All I had to do was add the raspberries, pour the mixture into a baking tray and let it bake for about 40 minutes.
And that was it. Can you believe how easy it was to make raspberry chocolate brownies? And it wasn’t at all as messy as I expected.
Just a bowl and a pan to wash? That’s nothing. I mean, don’t you just love when you cook something delicious and there isn’t a massive pile of dishes waiting for you in the sink?
The problem is that I don’t know if I should be so excited about this. Having handy such a delicious and easy chocolate brownie recipe when you are a chocoholic??
Now that’s an incredibly hard to resist temptation.
Just out of curiosity, how do you deal with chocoholism? Do you have some secret tasty recipes that aren’t so addictive?
I had my delicious dinner followed by the best brownies ever and paired everything with red wine. That’s right, these homemade brownies are excellent with a glass of dry red wine.
Oh, and they are also great with a cup of tea in the morning… and in the afternoon … ahh, I really need to stop thinking chocolate brownies.
I wish I could have sent some of them to you to see how good they were. But since I ate them all I can only show you how to make the best ever raspberry chocolate brownies. Then you can make them yourself and maybe send some to me ?!
Not too many, just a few, to taste them and see if you got it right 🙂
Follow the video and recipe below and after you make them, you really need to tell me if you find them so addictive as I do.
Or maybe more? 🙂
Don’t be shy. We are all Chocoholics, so there’s nothing wrong admitting it.
How to Make the Best Chocolate Brownies ever
How to Make The Best Raspberry Chocolate Brownies
- 1 cup dark chocolate - broken into chunks
- 1 cup salted butter
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup plain flour
- 1 Tbsp Vanilla Essence
- 200 g raspberry
- Heat the oven to 180C/350F. Line a 20 x 30cm baking tray tin with baking parchment.
- Put the chocolate, butter, and sugar in a pan and gently melt, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. (you may also melt the butter and chocolate in the microwave for about 1-2 minutes, making sure you take out the mixture and give it a stir every 30 sec. This will help not burning the chocolate)
- Place the melted chocolate mixture into a large bowl. Add in the eggs, vanilla essence and brown sugar.
- Sieve over the flour and whisk for about a minute or so, until you have a smooth batter.
- Fold in the raspberries, then pour the mixture into your baking tray. Spread it evenly with a spatula.
- Bake on the middle shelf for 50 mins or, if you prefer a firmer texture, for 10 mins more. Cool before slicing into squares.
- Keep it in the fridge, stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
And now… Who wants a bite?
Me first, me first 🙂
