MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 4, 2012

Brought this to a dinner with some friends....they loved it!!! I doubled the recipe (except I just kept the 1/2 cup sugar), and baked the brownies for 13 minutes in a 8 by 11 baking dish. Also, I used partially defrosted raspberries. Turned out great!!! Mine looked exactly like the picture.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 3, 2011

Raspberries + chocolate = Awesome! The 3 step recipe was not as much trouble as I thought it would be and more than worth the effort. Full-flavored chocolate brownie topped with smooth chocolate mousse with crushed raspberries, not too sweet. Great for special occasions and definitely a keeper.
