Chocolate Almond Brownies

I am not a big dessert person, but I love brownies. I have a real weakness for a good brownie, especially these brownies. I am totally addicted to them! The topping really makes these brownies. It is packed full of almonds, almond extract and bittersweet chocolate. SO delicious!

Don’t be alarmed that the brownies bake an additional 17-20 minutes once you add the topping. The brownies won’t be overdone. I promise!

These brownies are really rich, so have a glass of milk handy. They are also good topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. This might be my favorite brownie.
