These Raspberry Mascarpone Hazelnut Choc Brownie Bites are just perfect to serve at any summer event you have coming up.brownie bites, mascarpone cheese, raspberries

I had a pint of beautiful raspberries and wanted to do something special with them.  I always think of raspberry and chocolate as ingredients that go together perfectly.    Raspberry Mascarpone Hazelnut Choc Brownie Bites are elegant but so easy.  They are made with a box of brownie mix as the base and then each one is built with a rich mixture of flavors.

Since this recipe makes so many brownie bites, I tried freezing some of them without the filling and they were wonderful.  You can freeze some and fill at a later date when they are needed.

I made these for a bridal shower and will take them to our 4th of July family party also.  Little mini desserts are always great to serve, so that our guests can sample a variety of foods.
