David from St. Augustine, FL stopped into our Jacksonville store and told us how he likes to add Raspberry Enlightenment to his brownie recipe. We gave it a try in honor of Valentine's Day. Thanks for the tip!

  • 1 Cup butter (2 sticks)
  • 12 TB. (¾ Cup) COCOA, Natural or Dutch Process
  • 2 Cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 ½ Cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ Cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional - kids don't usually like nuts)
  • ½ Cup powdered sugar to sift on top of brownies (optional)

Preheat oven to 325°. Grease a 9x13 inch glass pan. Melt butter in a small pan over low heat, then sift in COCOA and whisk until smooth. Pour into a large mixing bowl, let cool. Add sugar, PURE VANILLA EXTRACT, and RASPBERRY ENLIGHTENMENT and mix well. Lightly whisk the eggs, then add to batter and stir to blend. Add flour, stir until combined. Brownies should be stirred by hand, until just blended. Add nuts if desired, spoon into baking dish. Bake for 30-40 minutes, until the middle springs back when lightly pressed and the edges start to pull away from the sides of the pan. Let cool, then sift powdered sugar over the top if desired. Cut into small squares and store in a covered container.
