Savannah R’s Raspberry Truffle Brownies modified from our family cookbook”
Why I Love This Recipe
I found this recipe a couple years ago when I was looking in my family cookbook for something to make for dessert. I make them all the time because they are so delicious! They are just about bursting with raspberry flavor and a semi chewy brownie on the bottom! I chose this recipe because I think that people should try brownies and raspberries together. CHEMISTRY INFORMATION: In addition to the pure substance and mixtures shown below, the unmixed batter, the batter after the almonds are added, and the finished brownies are all heterogeneous mixtures. The butter warming up after it is taken out of the refrigerator, and the batter being formed into a rectangle due to the pan are both physical changes. The brownies rising up in the oven and the smell of the cooked brownies are both clues to chemical changes.
