Dark Chocolate and Mascarpone Skillet Brownie with Raspberry Cream Topping

This gooey dark chocolate brownie with rich, creamy mascarpone center and tart raspberry cream on top is the thing dreams are made of! It's the perfect thing to make for weekday dessert or to bring to a spring celebration potluck. It's at it's peak gooeyness right out of the oven, so if that's the way you like it then go right ahead and serve it immediately (raspberry cream on the side, so it doesn't melt all over the place). If you like your brownies on the chewier side then feel free to let it cool for a bit before adding the raspberry cream topping and fresh raspberries.
