Chocolate Raspberry Brownies

Brownies are my all time favorite dessert.  I usually go for a plain brownie, but once in a while like to mix it up a little a try something a little different.  Like these Chocolate Raspberry Brownie.  They were a hit!

1 1/2 cups butter, melted
3/4 cup cocoa powder
3 cups sugar
6 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups flour

Raspberry Buttercream Layer:
1 cup butter, softened to room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup seedless raspberry jam
4 cups powdered sugar

Chocolate Layer:
2 cups milk chocolate chips
3/4 cup butter

Preheat oven to 350. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together melted butter and cocoa. Add sugar, eggs, vanilla and salt. Mix well and stir in flour just until mixed. Spread onto a greased 12x17-inch cookie sheet and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool completely. For the raspberry buttercream, mix butter, vanilla, jam and powdered sugar until light and fluffy. Frost brownies, then put them in the freezer for 20 minutes. For the chocolate layer, melt chocolate chips and butter in the microwave for 1 minute. Mix well and heat in 30 second intervals, mixing well after each interval, until completely melted.  Spread on top of the frosting layer and return to the freezer for another 20 minutes to set.
