April is here and my kids are home for Spring Break. No road trips this time as we are still recovering from a road trip last February and a camping trip this past weekend with the cub scouts. The rain is gone and it looks like a glorious week ahead, with sunny weather and blue skies. So, I will keep this post, short and sweet – especially sweet! Got plans for Easter and need a dessert?

Sure you could do cute rabbit cupcakes or a lamb cake. But how about something that will really make your family go bonkers?

I’ve made these Raspberry Cheesecake Brownies several times and I don’t think anyone would trade them in for a frosting laden cupcake!

I used some serious dark chocolate, 65% cocoa, for the dreamy brownie section, because I’m a serious choco-holic.Raspberry Cheesecake Brownies

Silky cheesecake tops this brownie, swirled in with bits of brownie bites.

Topped with fresh raspberries, your family will be savoring each bite, licking the plate clean.

Actually, make the cupcakes for the kids and save these for adults. These are too good to waste on such immature palettes!

And now, I’m off to the park to enjoy some sunshine! Have a fabulous week.
