Preheat your oven to 350 F (180 C).

In the bowl of a stand mixer or other medium bowl, combine the cocoa, baking soda, 2 tablespoons melted butter, and 1/8 cup very hot water. Stir until mixed together.

With the mixer on the lowest speed add in order listed: 2/3 cup sugar, egg, 2 tablespoons melted butter, and vanilla, flour, and salt. Mix until combined. Fold in 1/3 cup chocolate chips.

Pour the mixture into a small buttered cake pan. I’m using a 6 x 6 cake pan. Bake 30 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides. It is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.

While the brownies are cooling make the raspberry sauce.  In a small saucepan combine the raspberries, 2 teaspoons sugar, cornstarch and 1/8 cup water. Bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes until sauce thickens. Allow the sauce to cool slightly.

While the raspberry sauce is cooling make the chocolate ganache. In a small sauce pan combine 2/3 cup chocolate chips and heavy cream over low heat. Stir constantly until ganache is smooth and creamy.
