Chocolate brownie with raspberry sauce and vanilla ice cream

It was a super busy weekend with some cleaning up around the house followed by a couple of parties, one for a friend’s anniversary and the other a birthday and graduation party. We had a great time catching up with friends and making new ones. There was good food, wonderful conversations and kids running around.

At the birthday party, I tried chocolate brownie with ice cream and felt that it was too sweet/rich for my taste and all I could think of was the amount of sugar and calories. I have always wanted to try a healthier version of this decadent dessert. A couple of earlier attempts did not yield results that I could appreciate, but like everything in life – you have to keep trying and never give up. After a few tweaks, I finally felt that these brownies are delicious enough to share with you all 🙂

I like the fact that these are light unlike traditional brownies, contain way less sugar and I personally like pairing it with ice cream and a sweet-tart raspberry sauce that pairs well with the ice cream and the brownie. It is simple and delicious. I hope you enjoy your holidays without having to worry about the calories. 🙂

Warm the brownie before adding the ice cream 🙂

Enjoy !!

Notes:

  • Cooking time for  brownie depends on the type and power of the microwave used.
  • Raspberry sauce can be used with many other recipes and can be stored in an air tight container for a week, after it cools down to room temperature.
