Dark Chocolate and Raspberry Brownie Tarts







This is sort of like a follow-up to the Donna Hay classic brownies.  Too much chocolate in my diet?!  A woman has to get her daily dose of cocoa isn't it?

I shall not deny that I expected them to look much nicer.  But.. I can't grumble too much since I used ramekins instead of a springform cake tin as stated in the recipe.  And I learnt that I shouldn't have pressed my raspberries too deep into the chocolate as the brownies rise while baking.

   

Do I like these brownie tarts more than the classic brownies.. Nah. I think not.  The raspberries add a tinge of sourness to the brownies..  Somehow, I like my brownies pure and 'unadulterated'.  Oh well, but these were worth a try anyway, they looked so pretty in the magazine!

1 cup single cream
