Brownie Berry Tart

If you’ve been reading this blog for a long time, you know that every year my in-laws have a party for the Fourth of July. There are usually some kind of hot sandwiches, and everyone brings a little something else to add to the mix.  I generally bring some sort of side dish and a dessert.

The dessert portion this year was an easy choice.  As I scrolled through my desserts Pinterest board, I came across a recipe that I wanted to make last year but didn’t find early enough to get it done on time.  It still looked and sounded as delicious as I remembered, it was the Brownie Berry Tart from Dunk and Crumble. (recipe here)  Mine doesn’t look quite as pretty as hers, but it still tasted delicious!

I changed a few things.  I used semisweet chocolate instead of bittersweet, and I bought whipped cream instead of making it myself.  I also just used a pie pan instead of a tart tin.  (I went to four different places looking for tart tins and couldn’t find any so a pie pan was going to have to do!)

The process was a bit more than I usually do when making a dessert, but I gotta say I think the extra work was worth it.  And really, it wasn’t all that difficult, melting butter and chocolate just adds an extra step in the process.

While I am a big fan of fruit on top of brownies, I don’t think I’ve ever had brownies with chocolate IN them like these are! I’m glad that I used fresh raspberries in these because I really liked them and I don’t think that raspberry jam would’ve done the same thing for the texture of the brownie.

Ease: B+, not super difficult, but a few more steps than the typical dessert.
Taste: A+, really delicious.  I’m sure that fresh whipped cream would’ve made it even better!

Would I make it again? I think so!  It seemed to be a hit at the party so I think I would bring it to another gathering in the future.

  1. Yum… I’m sure the brownie/whipped cream/fruit combo was amazing! Thanks for making me crave brownies at 6:00 in the morning! 😉

    • Hehe, sorry!

      Maybe top it with some Greek Yogurt instead of whipped cream and it could be breakfast? 😉

  2. YAY! Looks amazing. So glad you liked it!

  3. This looks absolutely delicious. I’ve made brownies with jam in them before (specifically the recipe on Eat Live Run) and the jam gives the brownies a very fudgey texture.

    • Yeah that is what this was – though with a bit of the texture of fresh raspberries. It was SO good!
