I get a little bah-humbug over Valentines Day. Well, at least going out to celebrate it. I mean packed out restaurants with so many tables we feel like sardines in a tin. Packed out movie theatres, packed out park at a romantic picnic for 100’s. Are you noticing a theme? And don’t even get me started on those guys that walk around to every table trying to sell single roses. I don’t like anything ‘packed out’ at the best of times, let alone when everyone is celebrating their love for each other in the same place – talk about awkward. Nope. We much prefer an evening in. Treating ourselves to a picnic in the backyard or a movie with a glass of wine on the couch. Or both. It’s Valentines Day after all. Hey, and why not skip straight to dessert too 🙂

Why you’ll love these Chocolate Brownie Raspberry Cheesecake Parfaits

Cute and totally delicious with the chocolate and cheesecake.

DIFFICULTY – Easy. The brownie comes together quickly and is baked as normal, then just break it into bits and add a quickly whipped up raspberry cheesecake mixture.

MAKE AHEAD – Yes. Each component can be made a day ahead and can even be assembled a day ahead.

STORAGE – These should be covered with plastic wrap and stored in the fridge for up to 3 days. The brownie can be frozen and thawed in the fridge overnight. Wrap it well in plastic wrap and into an airtight container if you’re going to freeze it.

Melting Moments Cookies are a type of shortbread that melts in your mouth. These ones are filled with an easy Raspberry Buttercream. This is the best melting moments recipe EVER!So, how cute is this? This is such a tasty little treat. The aim was to create something that was decadent and obviously delicious. I wanted chocolate because everyone likes a bit of chocolate on Valentines Day. I chose the raspberry cheesecake layer for the colour of love but you could swap it for other berries. The recipe makes enough for 2-3, depending on the size of the glasses you use. I also made a second batch that I put into one larger bowl for a cute share dessert.

Based on a winning Chocolate Brownie

The Chocolate Fudge Brownie is an amended version of my first Choc Chip Chocolate Fudge Brownie I posted on this website. They’re a winner every time. The Chocolate Brownie Raspberry Cheesecake Parfaits look like a lot of steps but they’re actually very easy to put together. The longest part of this recipe is waiting for the brownies to bake.

Not just for Valentines

These would also make a really gorgeous Mothers Day, Hens Party or kids birthday treat, don’t you think?

I found the Persian Fairy Floss in a local speciality shop and thought it would be the perfect crowning glory. Just make sure to put it on the top of the parfaits only as you serve it. It won’t stay flossy for long once exposed to the air.

Ingredients

For the Brownie

  • 57 g (1/4 cup / 1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 40 g dark (70% cocoa) chocolate
  • 100 g (1/2 cup packed) light brown sugar
  • 50 g (1/4 cup) granulated white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 65 g (1/2 cup) plain (all purp) flour
  • 25 g (1/4 cup) dutch processed cocoa (or plain unsweetened)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the Raspberry Cheesecake Cream

  • 125 g (4.4oz) light cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar (notes)
  • 1/3 cup raspberry jam
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 ½ tablespoons (1/8 cup) whipping cream (notes)

Instructions
 

FOR THE BROWNIE

  • Preheat the oven to 180C / 350F / 160C fan forced. Line an 8x8 inch square baking tin with baking paper.
  • On the VERY LOWEST heat, melt the butter and chocolate together in a saucepan, stirring regularly. Remove from heat.
  • Use a handheld beater to beat together both sugars and the eggs until lightened and frothy (about 1 minute).
    Sift over the flour, cocoa and salt and use a spatula to mix through until just combined.
    Add the melted chocolate and butter mixture and mix through, again until just combined.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and as soon as it is cool enough to handle, lift it out using the baking paper and transfer to a cooling rack.

FOR THE RASPBERRY CHEESECAKE CREAM

  • In a small bowl beat together the cream cheese and sugar until smooth and creamy. Add HALF of the raspberry jam and salt and beat well. Add the cream and beat on high for 1 minute until light and smooth.

FOR THE RASPBERRY SAUCE

  • Stir together the remaining jam and 1.5 tablespoons of water.  Strain out the seeds, making sure to push all the jam through the strainer.

TO ASSEMBLE

  • Take 2 pretty glasses or one medium glass bowl. Break the brownie into small chunks (you will only need half of the brownie for this dessert, the rest can be frozen for another time).
  • Make a layer of brownie in each glass, top with a layer of cream cheese, then the raspberry sauce. Repeat the layers. Top with nuts, pink fairy floss or sprinkles and serve.

Notes

  1. I use a standard Australian 20ml tablespoon (4 teaspoons worldwide)
  2. For best results, you should always weigh ingredients like flour and sugar. Kitchen scales are relatively cheap but if you can’t weigh the ingredients, use the spoon and level method (don’t scoop).
