1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup sugar

4 large Land O Lakes® Eggs, at room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, melted, cooled


1/4 cup sugar

2 ounces cream cheese, softened

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream

20 fresh raspberries


1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips


Heat oven to 375ºF. Line bottom of 13x9-inch baking pan with parchment paper; set aside.

Bake 11-13 minutes or until center springs back when touched. Run knife around edges to loosen sides. Let cool.

Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in bowl. Set aside.

Combine 3/4 cup sugar, eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla in another bowl; beat at high speed 5 minutes or until fluffy, thick and pale yellow color. Stir melted butter into egg mixture; gently stir flour mixture into egg mixture until just combined. Spread into prepared pan.

Combine 1/4 cup sugar, cream cheese and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla in bowl; beat until creamy. Add 1/2 cup whipping cream; continue beating until soft peaks form. Place 1/2 cup whipping cream into saucepan; cook over low heat until bubbles form around edge of pan. Place dark chocolate chips into separate bowl; pour hot whipping cream over top. Stir until melted and smooth. Set aside.

Cut cake into 8 heart shapes using medium-sized cookie cutter. Divide filling evenly among hearts; spread to cover top. Place 5 raspberries onto filling of 4 hearts; gently press into filling. Place 4 remaining hearts, filling-side down, onto raspberries. Spoon ganache over tops; allow to drip down sides.
