Raspberry Liqueur Brownies

  1. Preheat oven to 350º.
  2. Line an 8 or 9 inch square pan with parchment paper.
  3. Heat butter and chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave, stirring it until it melts.
  4. Transfer chocolate mixture to a stand mixer, add sugar, and mix on medium until it is well blended.
  5. Let the mixture cool slightly before adding in the raspberry liqueur and vanilla.
  6. Add eggs, one at a time, and mix until combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  7. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt.
  8. With the mixer on low, slowly add in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt to the chocolate mixture and mix just until combined.
  9. Carefully pour the batter into the pan and smooth it out until it is even.
  10. Bake brownies for 30-35 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center of it comes out clean.
  11. Cool for 30 minutes on a cooling rack before gently running a knife around the edges of the pan.

Whipped Cream

  1. Combine heavy cream and sugar in a medium sized bowl. Mix on medium-high with a handheld or stand mixer until somewhat stiff peaks have formed. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use and slightly whisk before using if need be.


  1. Using a plastic knife, gently cut the brownies into small squares.
  2. Carefully place a layer of brownies in your glass.
  3. Top brownies with a dollop of whipped cream, spreading the whipped cream so it fully covers the brownie layer. You can use a wet towel to remove any smudges of whipped cream on the glass.
  4. Add a layer of raspberries over the whipped cream.
  5. Place another layer of brownies over the raspberry layer
  6. Top the trifle off with one last layer of whipped cream, spreading it so it fully covers the brownie layer.
  7. Enjoy!
