Author Notes: These brownies are decadent beyond compare. Every bite encompasses the yin and yang of food as the richness of the dark chocolate fudge is offset by an explosion of raspberry puree. This brownie emphasises a perfect partnership on every front, with a delicate balance of sweet and sour, the moist inner fudge and crispy top layer, and the rosy red blossoming within the deepest brown in each and every slice.
To top it all off, this recipe is incredibly simple, and doesn’t take too long to bake at all. These brownies are luxurious and simple.
