After being gone for a solid 11 days on my Chilean adventure, I was craving some mellow time at home with Thomas. There’s really nothing better than having a date night at home including a few glasses of champagne and something decadent – like these Raspberry Fudge Brownies! And perhaps a big salad to even things out.
I whipped up a batch of these – based on my all time favorite brownie recipe – and folded in some fresh Driscoll’s raspberries! It was pure perfection!
We enjoyed these, a few glasses of champers, and a movie! It was the most perfect relaxing and delicious date night!
I’m excited to share these today as part of Driscoll’s Made with Love soiree. When people ask me why I am a chef or why I do what I do, the answer is so simple… I love feeding people. I think cooking with love, sharing food with friends, family and loved ones, and letting everyone enjoy is one of life’s best pleasures. Throw in a bottle of bubbles and it’s bound to be a perfect evening.
These Raspberry Fudge Brownies are a perfect example of something made with love! It’s the only brownie recipe I’ll ever use – as it’s decadent, moist, rich and perfect! Plus it requires very minimal dishes – which makes me love it even more.

- 10 tablespoons (1 1/4 sticks) unsalted butter
- 1 1/4 cups sugar
- 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 cold large eggs
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups Driscoll’s Raspberries
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line a 9x9 baking pan with tin foil, leaving enough foil over the sides so you can easily lift the brownies out when they are done.
- In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium high heat.
- Add the sugar and cocoa powder once the butter is melted. Whisk to combine and remove from heat.
- Add the salt, vanilla and eggs and continuously whisk until the eggs are combined.
- Add the flour and continue to mix. Fold in the raspberries and set aside.
- Spray the 9x9 foil lined pan with baking spray. Transfer the batter into the prepared pan and place it into the oven. Bake for 30-35 minutes until a sharp knife can be inserted into the brownies and comes out clean. Let the brownies rest for at least 30 minutes before serving.
- (For the best results for cutting the brownies – chill the brownies before cutting and then let them come to room temperature.)
- Serve with glasses of champagne with raspberries garnished on top!
