- To make the raspberry buttercream place raspberries in a small sauce pan and stir over medium high heat until the raspberries break down. About 5 to 7 minutes. The berries will become soupy.
- Pour the mixture through a strainer to remove the seeds and put the liquid back into the saucepan. Simmer until the liquid has reduced to approximately 1/4 Cup. About 5 minutes. The liquid will thicken and be a deep red color. Cool and set aside.

- Fill a pastry bag or a plastic zipper bag with a cut corner with the frosting and pipe an outline on the flat side of one of the brownies. Place the other brownie flat side on the frosting like a sandwich. Decorated with extra confectioners sugar.
