"A delicious brownie recipe that I found on the site. Wow, who knew that adding almond paste to a brownie mix would pack so much of a punch! I live in Denver, and the ingredient list includes 3 tablespoons flour to compensate for the high altitude. If you don't live at high altitude, omit the flour. Be sure to adjust the water, oil, and egg measurements so they equal what is specified on your brownie mix."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F, or as specified on brownie box. Grease and flour a 13 x 9 inch baking pan. I use a square cupcake pan.

Step 2

Grate almond paste into a medium bowl, using the large hole side of grater. If your almond paste is very moist, you can put it in the freezer or refrigerator for 15-20 minutes to make it easier to grate.

Step 3

Add dry brownie mix, flour, and chocolate chips to almond paste. Combine using a wooden spoon. Make sure the almond paste is well incorporated, using your fingers if needed.

Step 4

In a separate bowl beat together the eggs, oil and water as called for on brownie box.

Step 5

Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir with spoon until well mixed.

Step 6

Spread batter into pan and bake according to time listed on brownie mix box, adding 2 to 3 minutes. Approximately 27-29 minutes for 13 x 9 pan or 30-33 minutes for 2 1/2 inch square cupcakes. To determine doneness, the brownies should start pulling away from the sides of the pan, and a wooden toothpick inserted in the center should come out with moist with crumbly-looking crumbs on it.

Step 7

Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.

Chocolate is a downfall for us and we have them just about every week. The almond flavor is an added bonus in the taste department. These were so moist and chewy. I baked mine at 325 for 25 minutes. We loved them with lots of nuts inside!

These brownies are so delicious. Those serious chocolate loves should try them quick! Mine came out chewy and the nuts just make them taste so delicious. I loved the almonds for a change. I usually use walnuts. I love anything with nuts so it didn't much matter to me. I might try them with pecans too!
