    Easy to Reduce Sodium

    Karen Ruiz from Louisiana

    Instead of using water and bouillion, use low sodium chicken broth or make your own. Also use no salt added tomatoes. Sounds yummy

    excellent family recipe

    Chris M from CA

    My family loved this recipe! Great use of spinach too.

    Good, colorful and balanced.

    Sally Wood from NH

    as far as this having too mucy sodium, it isn't hard to use salt substitutes and have less. Go online and look for natural sodium flavoring....it tells it all. nice peppers. good meal....make it.

  •  Star(s)

    Too much sodium

    Ann Newman from Eastern Pa

    I wish this recipe contained less sodium. Since I'm only supposed to have 2 Gms. sodium per day, this doesn't fit in. Can you adapt it? Any suggestions. EDITOR'S NOTE: Currently the sodium level is at 1210mg which is 1.2 grams. If you substitute ground turkey for the sausage, the sodium drops to 570mg. An additional step is to reduce the bouillon to 1/2 teaspoon and the sodium drops to 470mg. Hopefully this suggestion will help you.

      Retirement Party Rave

      Annette Witherspoon from GEORGETOWN, TX

      One of my co-workers retired today after working 25 years. We had a surprise retirement party for her and I made her a cake shaped like a castle, and these wonderful brownies. Everyone loved them and the "girls" are upset with me because they could not quit eating them and they broke their diet.

      Raving Raspberry!

      Very Good, But Not Great

      Eleanor Price from CAMDEN WYOMING, DE

      These are very rich and chocolatey, but something seems to be missing. I think it either needs no jelly or more of it. They're much richer than a boxed mix though.

      Rich Raspberry Swirl Brownies

      D Green from Plano, TX

      I saw these "new" to me dark chocolate-raspberry chips at the grocery and bought them to try. Then searched the web and found this recipe. While a bit step intensive to prepare, the end product is well worth it. Rich chocolate AND raspberry brownie that is moist. When I saw there was no leavening agent in the recipe, I went to another Nestle's cookbook to check a similar recipe and found it called for 1/4 teaspoon baking soda. So I added that and it was fine. Personally I think the pecans are not needed. :-) I just liked the chocolate and raspberry combo as did my guests who had it for dessert.

      Great Raspberry Brownies

      Tara Crissinger from LOCK HAVEN, PA

      This is a great recipe. You used to be able to find a raspberry brownie recipe mix in stores a few years ago, but not anymore. This is even better than the one you buy in the box.

      Chocolate Raspberry Goodness!

      Michelle Harvey from Marysville, WA

      These are very good and rich. I am not a big fan of combining raspberry with milk chocolate, but I was pleasantly supprised at how well the flavors come together. The recipe is very easy to make. I didn't have a 9x9 pan so I used the closest size I had and they came out great.

      Wonderful

      Martha Bordelon from SHREVEPORT, LA

      I made these simply because I had some raspberry jam and some Nestle semisweet-white chocolate morsels and was searching for something to bake. Low and behold on the back of the package of the morsels was this delicious recipe. It was a bit time consuming (at least more time than I usually take to create a snack), but certainly well worth the effort. Goodness, I believe this could make any chocolate lover also become a raspberry lover. I will be making this brownie for special occasions and I am certain it will be very impressive.
