Start with a cake mix to make these fast and rich Chambord raspberry brownies. Chambord is a French liqueur made of black raspberries, vanilla, and honey. Chocolate is a natural with raspberries, and these brownies do not disappoint. They couldn’t be easier to make.
If you don’t want to purchase a full bottle of Chambord, look for the single serving bottles like those sold on airplanes. This recipe uses raspberry-flavored chocolate chips which may not be available in your area. You may substitute 1/2 cup fresh or frozen raspberries plus semi-sweet chocolate chips. One-half cup of raspberry jam may substitute for the liqueur in the mix. You can choose any variety of cake mix instead of devil’s food, such as dark chocolate, German chocolate, or just plain everyday chocolate.
