Raspberry, Cherry & Almond Fudge Brownies

This post from Reezy at peanut butter and honey inspired me to create oodles of delicious, thick, gooey brownies. Well, that was the plan.

This may not come as a suprise to anyone else, but you really do need to follow a recipe if you want things to work out as intended. Shocking, no?!

My brownies didnt come out too bad, but I really should have put them in the mixer instead of trying to mush it all in with a wooden spoon.

They still tasted great, so I'm claiming this one as a win.

This recipe contains 600grams of dark chocolate. So yes, they are quite rich


Dont look too closely- I'm ashamed of my hand mixing skills. This is the recipe Reezy initially posted

As usual, I got a bit over confident and messed around with the recipe, despite not being the greatest chef. I threw some fresh cherries and toasted almonds in at the last minute

Raspberry & Dark Chocolate Brownies....these were delicious! Disappeared very quickly, too :)


I quite liked my little variation! Cherries were very sweet and moist, and the almonds added a nice little crunch.

Would you like to try this one out yourself? It's super duper easy and makes a buttload. (That's a scientific measurement for you right there.)

You can find the recipe here.

Did anyone else try their hand at some baking this long weekend?

  1. Oh yum! They look so good. I stuck to my tried and true vanilla cupcakes. :) Though it isn't a long weekend in WA. :(

    1. Sorry to rub my long weekend in! If it makes you feel any better, I had an exam on a public holiday, lol.
      Vanilla cupcakes are a classic.

    1. Wow, I wish I had your tastebuds. Although, do I really want to not enjoy peanut butter cups? I think I would be more disciplined with dieting!
