Posted by on January 30, 2017 in News | Comments Off on Love is in the Air!

It’s almost February, the month of love and couples and good sweets and heart shaped things and pink and red! For some, Febuary 14th is an exciting day for love and for others it’s a great excuse to indulge in foil wrapped Dove chocolates and cocktails. Either way some type of food or other Valentine’s Day themed things are somehow coordinated into the day.

 

Whether you’re attending a Valentine’s Day party, preparing a romantic dinner for a date or drowning in sweets and drinks here’s a little LOVEly inspiration for your February 14th wherever it may be.

 

Brownies and cheesecake are divine sweets but mixing the two together is simply genius. All you have to do for these Raspberry Cheesecake Brownies is make the brownie layer and add the cheesecake layer on top and that’s it! But if you want a little bit more detailed recipe keep scrolling.

 

– Here’s what you’ll need –

For the brownie layer:                                                                    

½ cup unsalted butter, softened

½ cup granulated sugar

½ cup brown sugar, lightly packed

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup all-purpose flour

¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

¼ teaspoon salt

3

For the raspberry cheesecake layer:

8 ounces cream cheese, softened

¾ cup plain Greek yogurt

2 large eggs

¼ cup granulated sugar

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 cup raspberries, lightly mashed

Cream together butter, sugar and brown sugar with electric mixer until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and mix again until combined. Add flour, cocoa powder and salt and mix until combined. Spread brownie batter in 8×8 inch baking pan lined with parchment paper and set aside.

Make the cheesecake layer. With electric mixer, whip the cream cheese, Greek yogurt and eggs. Add sugar, flour and vanilla and mix until

combined. Fold in the raspberries. Spread cheesecake mixture on top of the brownie batter.

Bake for 50-60 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool for an hour and chill for 2-3 hours before cutting the bars into squares.

After those amazing cheesecake brownies you’ll probably need something to wash them down. Next up, raspberry pink champagne floats. This recipe only makes one so if you plan on sharing (or drinking a few yourself) you’ll have to double or triple the recipe!

22-3 scoops raspberry sorbet

1 cup pink champagne
