Valentine's Day is all about celebrating love... and one of our favorite (and best) ways to express our love, is through our passion of food!
Today we are sharing a classic dessert, which has a modern kyoord twist. Our Raspberry and Dark Choc Chip Brownies are delicious and rich full of flavor, all thanks to our not so secret ingredient... Olive oil!
There are a few things that we look for in a good brownie - all of which, this recipe provides. They need to have a rich chocolate flavor. Crispy edges, and a gooey fudge middle. The raspberries in this recipe add another dimension of flavor. A delightful savory relief. The refreshing notes cut through the rich brownie with a puckering punch.
Our brownies are decadently sweet, and can easily become dairy free/vegan, if you substitute the chocolate chunks out with dairy free alternatives.
When making these brownies at home, one of the most important thing is choosing a high quality olive oil. The end result will be a sinfully delicious dessert, which will leave any sweet-tooth drooling and wanting more.
Raspberry and Dark Chocolate Brownies
½ cup premium olive oil like The Governor
200 grams (1 and 1/3 cup) dark chocolate, roughly chopped
90 grams (1/2 cup) brown sugar
100 grams (1/2 cup) granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large eggs
70 grams (1/2 cup) all purpose flour
20 grams (1/4 cup) cocoa powder
75 grams (1/2 cup) milk chocolate chips
125 grams (1 cup) fresh raspberries
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Grease and line a square or rectangular medium baking dish with parchment (8” square is the perfect size for this).
Add olive oil and chocolate to a heatproof bowl and microwave until the chocolate is melted, stirring every 20-30 seconds. Leave to cool slightly.
Add both sugars and vanilla to the chocolate-oil mixture and stir. Add the eggs, one at a time and stir again. Then add flour and cocoa and stir until mixture is smooth.
Gently fold in the chocolate chips and fresh raspberries and combine. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish and smooth the top.
Bake the brownie for about 30-35 minutes at 350 F or until cooked through and the top starts to crack. Leave to cool completely before cutting into squares.
