Raspberry Truffle Chocolate Brownies

Raspberry Truffle Chocolate Brownies 


  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup butter
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons water or 2 T. Kahula liqueur
  • ¾ cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder 


  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 8 oz package softened cream cheese
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup seedless raspberry jam or preserves 

Glaze Topping

  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable shortening 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and grease a 9 inch baking pan. 

In a heavy saucepan, melt the chocolate chips and butter over low.  In a bowl beat the eggs and sugar together.  Add the chocolate mixture (let cool slightly), the coffee liqueur or water and mix.  Stir in the dry ingredients.  Pour into the greased pan and bake for 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Let brownies cool. 

In another saucepan, melt chocolate chips and set aside.  In a bowl, beat the cream cheese when fluffy; add powdered sugar and raspberry preserves.  Add the melted chocolate and blend well.  Spread this mixture over brownies. 

For the glazing, melt the shortening and chocolate chips over low heat, drizzle over the brownies.  Chill for a couple hours, then cut and serve at room temperature.
