Raspberry Truffle Brownies have a thick and chewy brownie base, chocolate frosting raspberries and chocolate drizzle!
So let’s break these brownies down the layer by a noble layer: first we have our basic brownies fudgy; followed by our raspberry truffle frosting; ends with fresh chocolate and raspberry drizzle! Does that not sound like the dreamiest combo ever?

- In a medium bowl add flour, salt, and cocoa powder; Shake well to combine and set aside.
- In a large bowl combine chopped chocolate and butter; immerse the bowl over a pot of boiling water and melt, stirring occasionally, until chocolate and butter really melt.
- Remove from heat and carefully remove the bowl on the water. Add sugar and stir well. Add 3 eggs to the chocolate mixture and shake until combined. Add the remaining eggs and shake until combined. Make sure not to over beat the dough here!
- Add the flour mixture to the chocolate mixture. Use a rubber spatula (not shuffle), to gently fold the flour mixture into the chocolate until only a little flour mixture is visible.

Bake in the center of the oven for 30 minutes, turn the pan halfway through baking time, or until a toothpick is inserted into the center of the brownies out with a few wet crumbs attached to it.

Chill for at least 30 minutes before cutting.
