Almond Truffle Brownies

04 Mar

Are you looking for a way to satisfy your sweet tooth this weekend?  Here is an amazing brownie recipe from Taste of Home magazine.  The recipe contains a few more steps than your typical brownie recipe, but each and every extra step is worth it!

Almond Truffle Brownies

  • 1 package fudge brownie mix (13-inch x 9-inch pan size)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup chopped almonds
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
    FILLING:
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
    TOPPING:
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 23-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean (do not overbake). Cool on a wire rack.
  • In a microwave, melt chocolate chips; stir until smooth. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Beat in the milk, extract and melted chips. Spread over brownies. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm.
  • For topping, in a small saucepan, melt chips and cream over low heat, stirring occasionally. Spread over filling. Sprinkle with almonds. Refrigerate at least 1 hour longer before cutting. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
