Chocolate is every lady's best friend (after dogs, of course). But, believe it or not, sometimes brownies can be too chocolate-y. I know, I know. Blasphemous. The solution? Raspberry brownies. All you have to do is add in some raspberries to your favorite brownie recipe to cut through the decadent chocolate.

Since I'm totally guilty of standing at a tray of brownies and continuously eating, I decided to take make these raspberry brownies into single-servings. This way, I know I'm only supposed to eat one at a time.
