Raspberry Frosted Brownies

My brother was hungry the other evening (shocker!) so he decided to make brownies from a box mix for a quick sweet tooth fix. I can't remember the brand (Duncan Hines or Betty Crocker) but on the back of the box, it had a suggestion for a raspberry topping:

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup raspberry preserves
1 block (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened

** add more sugar or preserves to get the consistency you like**

He whipped this together and smeared it on top of the brownies. It was an easy and super sweet treat.

This topping would also be good on chocolate cupcakes!

Why he's wearing an adult-sized Power Rangers shirt, I do not know!

  1. I love your comment about his shirt! haha What a character!

    The dessert sounds good though - I never would have thought to do that. Those Duncan-Hines (or whoever ) people are smart. And so are you guys for trying it!
