Reviews for Raspberry Truffle Brownies
"SO good, but I had a hard time keeping the frosting in place"
"Great with or without the frosting"
"These were fantastic. I took them to a meeting and they disappeared fast!"
"This sounds fabulous. Could you substitute orange marmalade for jam? I love orange chocolate anything."
"My family and friends loved these and are always asking for more."
"I actually recall making this recipe a long time back and I made them again 5/4/14. I have the Country Woman Crate 'o Recipes! I did add 1/4 tsp. salt to the dry ingredients & I'd greased and floured the 8x8x2" square baking pan! I baked the brownies 30 minutes! I'd also added 1 tsp. vanilla extract to the batter after combining eggs, brown sugar and instant DECAF coffee crystals with the melted chocolate-butter mixture! I did have the ingredients for the raspberry filling (the cream cheese, seedless raspberry jam, chocolate chips, confectioners' sugar) and I did make the glaze, but I swirled it through the filling to create a marbled pattern. This recipe actually makes about 16 to 20 brownies, NOT 5 dozen as it's in a square pan! Having prepared these brownies before, I was able to gauge the amount after chilling and cutting them! This recipe is really great and a very tasty alternative to traditional brownies! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe with Country Woman! delowenstein"
"OMG - DELICIOUS! Definitely my go-to brownie recipe, w/ a slight rich taste, but at the same time not too sweet. I served pieces w/ a dollop of fresh whipped cream and raspberries on the side. I did not make the glaze, but sprinkled a small amount of icing sugar on top instead. As my 9x9 pan is a no-stick, I placed a piece of parchment on the bottom and up two sides (sprayed w/ pam) so I could lift the brownie out later to slice on a cutting board instead of scratching up the pan. This recipe is EXCELLENT and easy to make. Our guests loved this recipe and I gave them copies to take home!"
"This is a BIG hit at our house! I have made these many times. When I am in a hurry, I use a box mix for the brownies and follow the rest of the recipe for the filling and glaze."
"forgot to give it the 5 star rating it deserves."
"EXCELLENT! I have made this twice and it is delicous, but very rich."
