Chocolate Sin Raspberry Truffle Brownies

I got these from a post in cooking while trying to find a yummy birthday dessert for evwan and issokimi. I think it certainly fit the bill! I did make a few tweaks to the recipe, however, because I'm Like That. Also, we ate the brownies hot, even though the recipe poster claimed: Decadent, delicious, but be sure to keep in the fridge! I think they were better warm. :) Thanks for your assistance, melinza!
