Chocolate Raspberry Brownies
Degree of Difficulty: 3
Mess Factor: 3
In addition to a brownie box mix and its corresponding ingredients, you will be using a jar of raspberry jam/jelly/preserves. I prefer preserves with the seeds so that I can actually tell it is raspberry I am eating!
Take the lid off of the preserves and place it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds. After pouring the brownie mix into the pan, spoon globs of the slightly warmed preserves on the mix. Using a knife, swirl the globs throughout the mix and place in the oven.
The first batch we made (in the square pan), we baked for 40 minutes (box called for 40-45 minutes). The second batch (in the round pan), we baked for 38 minutes and I think they came out much better. The middle stayed a lot gooier, while not being undercooked.
I know I have been missing in blog action for a little bit but we have been quite under the weather at our house. With Valentine's Day fast approaching (tomorrow eek!), I have lots of projects and recipes that will be completed in the next day or two so be prepared for an onslaught of posts this week!
