We all have our secret indulgences! And every now and then, a Mom just needs to make a pan of fresh, chewy and decadent brownies!
And while I try to keep a few "secret" things around so that I can whip something up fast when I need to, with six kids I usually have to hide some of the ingredients so that I have them when I need them, and hope that I can remember where I hid them!
If you have friends stopping by, or need to whip up something for an event, no one will ever know how easy these are to make - and they are AH-MAZING!
I'll confess that I don't always have the time to make brownies from scratch, and for those times, my go-to brownie mix is GHIRARDELLI DARK CHOCOLATE BROWNIES. They are fabulous all on their own, and loaded with dark chocolate chips - so they are HEAVY on dark chocolate flavor.
A cup and a half of fresh raspberries are smashed into a fresh raspberry puree and pulled thru the dark brownie batter to give them a wonderful fresh raspberry flavor. And I top these with Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Raspberry Squares - pop them on top of the brownies when you take them out of the oven, wait 10 minutes, and spread gently. DONE!
The double dark chocolate brownies, dark chocolate chips, raspberry puree, and dark chocolate raspberry squares combine to make the most perfect brownie ever - and that's saying a lot for someone that loves caramel brownies as much as we do!
No one will ever know just how stinkin' easy these are to make - but they will thank you over and over again after they taste them - and beg you to make more!
It will be our little secret!
