Dark Chocolate Brownies with Raspberry Goat Cheese Swirl
Fudgy brownies are great, but sometimes they can be a little too sweet and dense to be truly addictive. However, with the addition of tangy, creamy goat cheese and sweet yet tart raspberries, these brownies are a step above. Who needs cream cheese when you've got goat cheese?
I've always been a fan of goat cheese in desserts; its mellow funkiness is more interesting than plain cream cheese. I use both here — cream cheese to make sure the topping is creamy enough, and goat cheese for serious flavor. Raspberries are a classic pair with goat cheese, and I love them with chocolate, so I swirled them into the topping, and baked them into the brownies themselves.
