Fantastically rich and fudgy, these Raspberry Brownies are loaded with fresh raspberries for a puckery flavor kick. Made with three kinds of chocolate and just one bowl, this from-scratch recipe is both simple and sublime.

SURGEON GENERAL’S WARNING: Raspberry Brownies are a guilty pleasure that may result in spontaneous addiction. Quit stuffing them in your face to reduce the probability of death by dark chocolate.

Side note, you won’t really die but you might just think you died and were misdirected to heaven. Like the inhabitants of hell, this recipe is sinful. Pray that you don’t eat the entire pan.

Crafted from dark wizardry with three sources of dark chocolate, these brownies exist solely for the chocolate obsessed. If you’re indifferent to dark chocolate then skip this recipe and use your spare time to see if a doctor can figure out what’s wrong with you.

I’m worried it might be something terminal.

Raspberry dark chocolate brownies have a condition, too. It’s called being rich. When I say rich I mean insanely rich, like richer than Jeff Bezos rich. My addiction to chocolate borders on disturbing but even my tolerance is pushed to the brink by the richness in each bite.

That doesn’t stop me from eating them. If anything, I can’t eat the brownies fast enough. Sometimes I devour the batter before it ever sees the inside of my oven. Today I nearly chipped a tooth shoving the velvety mix in my mouth so fast that the metal spoon smashed into my front teeth.

A raspberry softened the blow.

Luckily, every bite is studded with the sweetly tart fruit or I’d be going broke at the dentist right now. Raspberries are my savior. Not only did they save my teeth, but they also saved all the dark chocolate packed in this brownie from being too intense.

So I just want to say thanks for everything red raspberries. You are a juicy burst of yin to the decadent yang of dark chocolate. The two of you make one irresistible brownie.

  • This recipe uses a trio of dark chocolate types to achieve max fudginess: dark chocolate chips, dark chocolate bars and Dutch-process cocoa.
  • Fresh raspberries are recommended but frozen can work in a pinch. Do not thaw berries before baking.
  • Always bake brownies in a shiny metal pan. Glass and stoneware pans are not recommended for brownies due to their prolonged bake times.
