Raspberry Chocolate Dessert

I was going to take this to the Not-So-Newlywed Game at church, but we didn't go! I haven't made it, but I can tell we're going to like it. I am making it with my Larry in mind---he loves raspberries. it makes a lot of servings!

This is a convenience recipe---using boxed mix and canned frosting-----but this is how I do stuff! I got it from the Betty Crocker website this morning. I get an e-mail from Betty Crocker once a week or so, and I get good ideas from that. I saw the picture and knew it would be a hit.

Raspberry Mousse Brownies
Brownie mix, chocolate chips and whipping cream create a chocolate lover's dreamy indulgence.
Prep Time:20 min
Start to Finish:4 hr 10 min
Makes:24 servings

1 box (1 lb 6.5 oz) Betty Crocker® Original Supreme brownie mix (with chocolate syrup pouch)
Water, oil and eggs called for on brownie mix box
1 bag (10 oz) raspberry-flavored or semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/4 cups whipping cream
1 container (1 lb) Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy cream cheese frosting
1 tablespoon whipping cream
Fresh raspberries, if desired

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray or shortening (for easier cutting, line pan with foil, then grease foil on bottom only of pan). Make brownies as directed on box for 13x9-inch pan. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

Reserve 1/4 cup chocolate chips for drizzle. In large microwavable bowl, place remaining chocolate chips and 1 1/4 cups whipping cream. Microwave uncovered on High 2 to 3 minutes, stirring once every minute, until chocolate is melted. Stir until mixture is smooth. Refrigerate about 20 minutes or until slightly thickened.

Add frosting to chocolate mixture. Beat with electric mixer on high speed 1 to 2 minutes or until well blended and soft peaks form. Spread over cooled brownies, smoothing top.

In small microwavable bowl, microwave reserved 1/4 cup chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon whipping cream uncovered on High 30 to 45 seconds, stirring once, until mixture can be stirred smooth. Drizzle over frosting mixture. Refrigerate 1 to 2 hours or until set.

Cut into 12 squares; cut each square diagonally in half to make triangles. Garnish with raspberries.

High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): Follow High Altitude directions on brownie mix box for 13x9-inch pan.

Jamie is doing okay, by the way. He is still running fever, and when his medicine wears off, his fever just shoots back up. He was 101.8 earlier, and was down, but he's back to 101.9! Yikes! I better take care of my boy and get him some medicine!
