~ Tuxedo Brownie Torte ~

This is a first for me....I'm linking up with Foodie Friday. Please go over and see all of the other wonderful recipes posted!

Tuxedo Brownie Torte

1 (approximately 22-ounce) package fudge brownie mix
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 large egg
1 (10-ounce) package frozen raspberries
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup fresh red raspberries
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons white creme de cacao
1 cup vanilla flavored chips, melted
1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
1 tablespoon chocolate candy bar, grated

Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Prepare pan as directed on brownie mix package.

In a bowl, combine fudge brownie mix, water, oil, and egg. Blend well then spread in the prepared pan. Bake for 38 to 45 minutes, or until the center is set. Cool.

Meanwhile, process frozen raspberries in a food processor until pureed. Strain to remove the seeds.

In a saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch. Gradually add the raspberry puree and mix well. Bring to a boil and cook until the mixture is clear, stirring constantly.

Cool for 5 minutes then spread over the brownie mixture to within 1/2-inch of the edge. Garnish with fresh red raspberries then refrigerate.
In a medium bowl, combine softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, and white creme de cacao; beat until smooth. Stir in melted vanilla chips and beat until smooth. Fold in cream whipped until stiff. Cover and refrigerate for at least 45 minutes. Pipe or spread over the raspberries. Sprinkle with grated chocolate candy bar.

Makes 8 servings

Oh wow, this looks incredible. I would love a slice right now, before I hit the sack. I am such a night time eater and reading food blogs at midnight is not a good thing!

OH!MY!GOODNESS!! Chocolate and raspberries together!! You would post this the very morning I had decided I MUST cut back on carbs at least until my daughter's fall wedding. Well, maybe just a little piece of this wouldn't hurt. ;)

Thank you for this recipe!
