I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who doesn’t like a brownie. For those who claim they don’t like chocolate (I find this nearly impossible to fathom and figure deep, down inside they’re really closet chocoholics), there are blondies, a cousin of the brownie. These brownies have a rich chocolate flavor enhanced with a touch of espresso. What pushes them over the top is the marriage of chocolate and raspberry jam, raspberry extract and big chunks of white chocolate. The scent of baking chocolate and raspberry wafting through the kitchen is euphoric, trumped only by the moist, fudge-like texture, crispy crust and insanely rich flavor. Being uber easy to prepare and nearly impossible to mess up, makes this one of our most cherished ‘go to’ recipes that never needs an excuse for making. Served with homemade vanilla bean ice cream, whipped cream or crème fraîche, makes this a dessert that can hold its own after any meal. Dressed up or down, this recipe never disappoints….
