If you are wanting a very elegant, but delicious, decadent dessert, than this is the one. I usually save it for Valentines, but I have made it a few times this past holiday season. I got this recipe off from AllRecipes…. ages ago (I believe they called it Raspberry Fudge Brownies http://allrecipes.com/recipe/raspberry-fudge-brownies/detail.aspx?event8=1&prop24=SR_Title&e11=raspberry%20fudge%20brownies&e8=Quick%20Search&event10=1&e7=Home%20Page). I can’t claim it and have no idea who did it, but it is simply delicious! It is done in about three different steps… a little time-consuming, but oh so worth it!
2 C sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 c melted butter
Mix these in your mixer than add the following dry ingredients:
1 c flour
2/3 C cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 to 1 C semi chocolate chips
Line a baking dish with tin foil and spray it with cooking spray. Pour the brownie mixture into it and bake it at 350 for about 25 – 30 minutes.
In the meantime, cook the following fudge:
1 C evaporated milk
2 egg yolks
about 1/2 to 1 cup of milk chocolate chips — mix on med heat until thickened and bubbly… do NOT boil.
When the brownies are done, pour the fudge mixture over the top and spread it out evenly. Place inside the refrigerator and let them set up (a few hours).
For the icing, take the following and mix it up in your mixer:
8 ounces of cream cheese, about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of strawberry or raspberry jam, 1 C of frozen whipped topping (thawed), food coloring — if desired.
Mix thoroughly and spread over the chilled brownies. Chop up some chocolate chips and sprinkle on the top for garnish!
