I don’t usually go overboard for Valentine’s Day, but I do have a tradition with some of my girlfriends to celebrate Galentine’s Day every year (shoutout to Leslie Knope). This year, I decided to make some treats for my friends and decided on brownies. Instead of just adding food coloring to make the frosting pink, I went with a raspberry buttercream frosting for an extra layer of flavor. Topped with some fun sprinkles, these raspberry frosted fudge brownies are perfect for a sweet treat for your loved ones, your friends, or just for you!

These brownies are VERY fudgy. If you undercook them a bit, they’re even more so, but I tend to like brownies a bit more set, with a fudgy center. These came out perfect.

Do I need to purée raspberries for these brownies?

Nope! You absolutely can cook down some raspberries into a lovely sauce for this frosting. But I made these on a Wednesday night, and I don’t know about you, but for me, time is at a premium on weeknights! I’m sure that fresh raspberries would be delicious and would amp up the raspberry flavor. But to save time, I took a cue from Sally’s Baking Addiction and tried out making a buttercream with raspberry jam. That cut down on the prep work and made this easy holiday treat even easier!

Give these raspberry frosted fudge brownies a try this year for Valentine’s Day, or any time of year for a delicious bite of chocolate and raspberry! You can also switch out the sprinkles for some shaved dark chocolate for a more elegant look. Happy Valentine’s Day!

  • 2 tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • 1 ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp table salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and position rack in center of oven.
  • Grease a 9×13 baking pan with cooking spray and line with parchment paper.
  • Combine cooled melted butter, oil and sugars together in a medium-sized bowl. Whisk well to combine. Add the eggs and vanilla; beat until lighter in colour (another minute).
  • Sift in flour, cocoa powder and salt. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients with a rubber spatula until JUST combined.
  • Gently fold in the chopped chocolate.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan, smoothing the top out evenly.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until center of brownies are just set. A toothpick entered into the center of the pan should come out dirty, but the batter should generally not jiggle when shaken.
