My favorite flavor combination of chocolate and raspberries.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These homemade brownie bars have a raspberry layer in the middle. Sounds like a simple dessert, but they are a brownie bar like no other. Very chewy and soft, they have a wonderful sweet chocolate flavor that's mixed with the layer of tart raspberry fruit spread. Melted dark chocolate is drizzled over them and topped with a fresh raspberry. Bite into these chocolate and raspberry bars and your taste buds will swoon.
