Chocolate Raspberry Bourbon Brownies

Photos by me!

I L.O.V.E. chocolate. Who doesn’t? And fresh-picked raspberries? They are a sweet summer delight!

I modified a choc-p.b. recipe (I know, my favorite combo, but like I said, the fresh-picked raspberries couldn’t go to waste) by using a simple raspberry sauce.

I took these to 2 different dinner parties in one weekend (shhh!), and they were a big hit – ENJOY!

RASPBERRY SAUCE:

1 cup of fresh (or frozen) raspberries
1 1/2 tbsp. cornstarch
1/2 c. water
1/3 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. bourbon (my addition)
In a small saucepan stir together cornstarch and sugar. Add water and the raspberries.  Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until mixture begins to boil. Cook mixture for an additional minute, then remove form heat. Stir in vanilla and bourbon. Let stand until cooled.
Did I also mention cream cheese?
CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY BOURBON BROWNIES
Ingredients:
  • your favorite brownie batter
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened (can be light)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 eggs
  • RASPBERRY SAUCE
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cream or milk
Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Prepare the brownie batter and spread into a greased 8×8 baking dish.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat together the cream cheese, eggs, and sugar. Add the raspberry sauce, adding the cream as necessary to make the mixture more smooth. The consistency should be thick, but smooth enough to easily mix with the electric mixer. Add the vanilla and salt.
  3. Pour mixture over brownie batter and marble with a knife.
  4. Bake for 40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
