Chocolate Covered Raspberry Brownies

Yes, these Chocolate Covered Raspberry Brownies are as decadent as they sound! Picture this... perfect, fudgy, chewy raspberry-flavored brownies, dipped in a thin chocolate coating and sprinkled with dried raspberry for an extra tasty raspberry flavor in every bite.

AMAZING for Valentine's Day, bake sales, pot lucks, or any day you're craving an extra delicious brownie treat.

Extra delicious brownies

What's better than brownies?? Brownies covered in chocolate with a little bit of fruity raspberry flavor to them! These are definitely not health food brownies (if you're looking for those, try these zucchini brownies). But my oh my are they so good!!

If you want to make these triple chocolate brownies, you can add in some un-melted chocolate chips into the brownie batter... just imagine biting into a thin, chocolate coating dusted with dried raspberries, then tasting the delicious chewy fudgy raspberry brownies, and biting into tasty little chocolate chips. Perfection.

Or if you like the sweet and salty combo, you can sprinkle some flaky sea salt onto the chocolate-dipped brownies.

You'll also need:

  • An 8x8-inch baking pan, or 8x10-inch baking pan (I prefer thinner brownies for this recipe because I am dipping them in chocolate, so I use the 8x10-inch pan)
  • Parchment paper
  • A hand mixer or stand mixer
  • A cooling rack (optional)
  • All the usual baking equipment

Recipe variations and ingredient substitutions

You can use any freeze-dried fruit to sprinkle on top of these brownies, such as freeze-dried strawberries or mango. If using other fruit, I recommend using a vanilla extract or rum extract instead of raspberry extract, so you don't confuse your taste buds. 🙂

Make sure the fruit or berries you use are freeze-dried, not just dried. Dried fruit is chewy in texture, freeze-dried fruit is flaky, crumbly, and light.

If you don't want to use coconut oil, any neutral vegetable oil will work for this recipe.

I used bittersweet chocolate chips for this recipe, but you can use any kind. Semi-sweet, milk chocolate, dark chocolate - whatever you have on hand, and whatever you prefer will work fine!

Instructions

Make the brownies

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare an 8x8-inch or 10x8-inch baking dish lined with parchment paper. Leave few inches of overhang on the sides so you can easily remove the brownies from the pan.

Step 2: In a small saucepan over medium to low heat, warm up the coconut oil and chocolate chips until the chips melt and it is a smooth mixture. You can also do this in the microwave in a medium microwave-safe bowl, in 30-second increments. Set aside.

Step 3: Use a hand mixer or a stand mixer to mix the eggs in a medium mixing bowl for 1 minutes. Add the sugar and raspberry extract, and mix on high for another 1-2 minutes.

Step 4: Pour in the melted chocolate mixture and mix on low just to combine until smooth.

Step 5: Add cocoa powder, cornstarch, and salt. If you want to add extra chocolate chips, add them now. Gently mix to combine until all the ingredients are well combined. The batter will be smooth and thick.

Step 6: Pour the brownie batter into prepared baking pan and bake for 25 minutes, or  until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or just a little dirty/crumbly. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes in the pan. Gently remove from the pan and let cool completely. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to cool - do not skip this step before dipping brownies in chocolate.
