• Dark Chocolate Raspberry Pie Bars

    Nothing screams raspberry season like going back to Iowa and picking raspberries with your mom. A family friend has a large patch of raspberries and we were lucky enough to get to go pick and enjoy them while I was home. We picked SO many that there was plenty for me to bring back to North Carolina and enjoy/experiment with. So I figured, this was the perfect opportunity to try some new recipes. I asked you all on Instagram which you would prefer: a breakfast or dessert recipe and of course the results were SO close and after researching recipes, I knew there was NO WAY I could just make one. So I am kicking off the first raspberry recipe of the season with: Dark Chocolate Raspberry Pie Bars. I KNOW. The name says it all! I knew as soon as I saw this recipe, the simple ingredients and how quick and easy it would be to make these, they would be the dessert option I would try! Below you will find the ingredients, recipe and step by step instructions on how to make these.
