Mmmmm….and easy is all I had to saw about this one! I have mentioned numerous times before that my weakness is anything Raspberry and Chocolate so when I got the craving the other day I searched my cabinets for what I could make.
So here is an easy fun way to eat brownies and add some flavor to them!
He is what you will need:
Box of Brownie mix prepared as directed.
16oz of Frozen Raspberries (Raw, not packaged in sugar or syrup)
1/3 Cup of Sugar
3 Tablespoons of Cornstarch
1 Teaspoon of Lemon Juice
Thaw your raspberries then place in a saucepan. Combine Sugar, Cornstarch, and Lemon Juice and bring to boil. Stirring until the raspberries are no longer chunky.
Strain the raspberry sauce in a mesh strainer to get rid of the seeds. If you have trouble getting the sauce to go through the strainer you can help it through by pressing it with a spatula. Get as many seeds out are you possible can because it tastes much better without it.
Place your sauce to the side to cool and then place them in a pipping bag or my favorite a Ziploc bag hung over a cup and clip the corner.
Preheat your over to 350 degrees. Prepare your brownie mix as directed on the box. Place the batter into your pipping (ziploc) bag. Place a piece or parchment paper over your baking sheet. You can make any design really I choose to make hearts for Valentine's Day but you can make footballs, flowers anything really. Just keep in mind they melt slightly. On the paper draw the design that you'd like to make so you have something to follow.
Cut the corner of your bag and start pipping your hearts by drawing over the line and then into the center. Don't pour extra batter to fill every little crack because when you put it in the oven it will spread and you can create some funky looking hearts.
Bake your brownies for about 8 minutes or until the brownies have the cracked look. Grab your raspberry sauce and pipe your desired design onto your cookie. Place back into the oven for another 2 minutes to allow the raspberry sauce to harden slightly.
Take the cookies out of over an allow them to cool completely on a wire rack.
I played around with my left over brownie batter and made different treats such as a Raspberry Brownie sandwich. Raspberry filled Brownie Bites which were also all fantastic!
