Dark Chocolate Raspberry Swirl Brownies 2

Rich, decadent, and fudgy Dark Chocolate Brownies with a Raspberry Jam Swirl and Walnuts interspersed for a crunchy bite.

Can you believe that tomorrow is already New Years Eve!! Seriously, what happened to 2013? It went by soooo stinking fast!

Have you started setting any of your New Years resolutions yet?

I have thought about a few. One of them being going on this thing called the “Daniels Fast”. It’s called the Daniels fast because when Daniel in the Bible was taken captive by his enemies he refused to eat the food given to him. {if you want to know more about why totally go check it out in Daniel 1:1-21} Β He choose only to eat vegetables and drink water. Mike and I have done this fast before and it really cleanses your body. No sugar, no meat, no caffeine, no dairy. Its intense!

So, for one last “hurrah” before the new year I thought I would do an extremely rich and decadent Dark Chocolate Raspberry Swirl Brownie! Sounds good right! πŸ™‚ These brownies are not for the faint of heart, they are super chocolately and fudgy, and you will most definitely need a glass of milk to wash this down. But its so worth it, especially before all those new years resolutions kick in. πŸ™‚

Today is our Mystery Dish Challenge. A Challenge one time a month where 12 of us bloggers create a dish out of 8-10 Mystery Ingredients given to us. Last month I made Lamb Endives with Cherry Balsamic Sauce, which would be a great appetizer to ring in the New Year! Super easy to make and they look so fancy!

Today our host is Sherri over at The Well Floured Kitchen.Β The ingredients she gave us were:

  • Dark Chocolate
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Berries
  • Coconut Oil
  • Walnuts
  • Fish {any white flaky fish}
  • Baby Spinach
  • Pecorino Romano Cheese

I ended up using the Dark Chocolate, Berries, Coconut Oil, and Walnuts in this dish! πŸ™‚

To get started, preheat oven toΒ 325Β°F. Lightly grease a 8×8 pan with cooking spray and set aside.Β Combine 2/3 cups of melted coconut oil, 1 1/4 cup of sugar, 3/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons of Dutch-processed Cocoa Powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt . Β It will look gritty but it will become smooth once the other ingredients are added.

When the batter looks thick, shiny, and well blended, add 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour and stir until you cannot see it any longer. Gently fold in 1/3 cup of chopped walnuts.Β Spread brownie mix evenly in the greased pan.

In a medium saucepan, over medium heat add 1/3 cup of raspberry jam with preserves. Heat until jam is smooth and liquid. Pour raspberry jam over brownie mixture in a haphazard pattern.

  1. These LOOK fudgy!! And like the best kind of chocolate overdose you can have. Definitely the brownie of choice before going on a Daniel Fast, very wise decision. Only thing I would do is put it in a bowl of french vanilla ice cream instead of drinking a cup of milk. Gotta go all out before cutting everything out, right?

    1. haha.. thanks! I might be recovering from these for a while… definite chocolate overdose. But so worth it before eliminating everything! haha.. Thanks for stopping by Dani. Hope you and the hubs have a great New Year!

    1. Thanks Cate, they were amazing to eat, but so glad they are out of the house. Addicting! πŸ™‚ I love raspberries and chocolate too, but I guess you knew that already after seeing this recipe. πŸ™‚

    1. You have no idea, so moist to bite into from the coconut oil! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the good luck with the fast, it starts on the 6th so I have a couple more days left.. πŸ™‚ Happy New Year to you too my dear!

  2. These brownies look fantastic – so fudgy and decadent and love the coconut oil and raspberry jam in here. Happy New Year Krista and good luck with the fast πŸ™‚

    1. Oh girl.. they are super fudgy and the chocolate and raspberry combination is yummy! Thanks goodness these are out of the house. πŸ™‚
