Chocolate-frosted almond brownies – a combination cocoa powder, espresso, dark chocolate, with some toasted almonds thrown in for a bit of crunch. This is a recipe you’re going to love. It’s one I hope you make over and over, and over (!) again. (And you can, because it’s easy. And doesn’t take long at all.)
I’m super excited to share this recipe for Chocolate-Frosted Almond Brownies with you, bestie. This post is sponsored by Real Layers Baking Company. Real Layers create delicious ready-to-spread buttercream frostings, which save you (and in this case, me!) a lot of hassle. The frostings use 100% real butter, are gluten-free, and use no artificial flavours or preservatives. For this recipe, I’m using the Real Layers Chocolate Frosting, but they also have Vanilla and Maple flavours in case you want to mix it up a little bit!
Who doesn’t love brownies?
Brownies are probably the first thing most of us learn to bake as children – they’re easy, they’re delicious, and you can dress them up (or down) any way you really want to. Birthday cake sprinkles? Go for it. Chocolate frosting? It’s a classic. Maple-infused-almond-butter-nougat? Well, okay…that one’ s a bit more work. But you see what I’m saying…brownie recipes are something you can really make your own. And more than that, brownie recipes hold a special place on this blog.
You see, back in early-2015, I didn’t have a blog. I had never even considered writing one. But after attending a few potlucks, people kept asking me to share my recipe for Chocolate Chip Brownies. And that’s basically how Chocolates & Chai got started, I needed a convenient way to share a few recipes with friends and family located all over the globe.
For those of you that are outside of Canada and may not have access to Real Layers’ frostings, don’t worry. I’ve got you covered too. You can use this homemade Whipped Cocoa Buttercream recipe to top your brownie. You can also just make the brownies without any frosting, it’ll still be super delicious. (Or you can just melt chocolate all over the top of the brownie. Because, chocolate.)
As always, please do comment below, and let me know your thoughts. Share this post, because everyone deserves some delicious chocolate frosted brownies this weekend. And follow me on all the social medias – Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter.
