Chocolate-Frosted Almond Brownies


This Chocolate-Frosted Almond Brownies recipe uses dark chocolate for a deep flavour and toasted almonds for the perfect crunch. Quick and easy to make!


Units Scale
  • 2/3 cup almonds
  • 4 ounces Dark Chocolate, chopped
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup Unsalted Butter
  • 1 tbsp Espresso Powder (regular instant coffee works fine!)
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 4 Large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup Real Layers Chocolate Frosting


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Toast almonds on a baking sheet, tossing halfway through, until golden brown, 8–10 minutes. Let cool, then coarsely chop; set aside.
  2. Melt together chocolate, butter, and cocoa powder (in a heatproof bowl set over a medium saucepan of barely simmering water), stirring occasionally, until smooth. Remove from heat.
  3. Stir in espresso powder and pure vanilla extract. Let cool.
  4. Set oven temperature to 375° F.
  5. Line an 9-inch baking dish with parchment paper (leave an overhang on 2 sides). Butter parchment paper.
  6. Whisk eggs and salt together. Add sugar in 3 batches and continue to whisk vigorously until very thick. Pour in cooled chocolate mixture, and mix in gently. Gently fold in flour and almonds (save a large handful to top your brownies with!) until no streaks remain.
  7. Spread batter into prepared baking dish, For fudgier brownies, bake until edges have puffed but the centre is still slightly wobbly, 22–25 minutes. For cakier brownies, bake until edges have puffed and centre is set, 25–30 minutes. Let to cool slightly, and then spread on chocolate frosting, allowing the frosting to melt. Top with toasted almonds.
  8. Remove from baking tray, and cut into whatever size portions your lovely heart desires.


If you don’t have access to chocolate frosting, this recipe can be made without any frosting at all! It will still taste delicious.
