Chocolate Almond Blondies

Is there ANYTHING chocolate doesn't pair well with? Chocolate and peanut butter, chocolate and vanilla, chocolate and coffee, well...we've already discussed chocolate and orange.

I have *always* loved chocolate and almond. I'm pretty sure that love affair started with a Hershey bar. ♥

If you love almond, you're going to LOVE these blondies. They are over-the-top with almond flavor with just the right hit of bittersweet chocolate. The blondies are soft, a little cake-y, very moist, and have a great added crunch thanks to the slivered almonds on top.

Get ready to heat up your oven...these are so easy to make; you'll be on your second piece within the hour. ;)

Chocolate Almond Blondies

2 eggs
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 cup salted butter, melted and cooled
1 cup unbleached, all-purpose flour
1/2 cup bittersweet (or semisweet) chocolate chips
1/2 cup slivered almonds

Preheat oven to 325. Grease an 8x8" pan.

Beat the eggs. Add in the sugar and salt, and mix well. Beat in the almond extract and melted butter. On low speed, mix in the flour, just until incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Top with the almonds.
(Don't worry...this is as close as I let him get.)

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until done. Cool on a wire rack.

  1. Omg, these looks SO good! Almond extract is a good touch... I may add Coconut to give it that "Almond Joy" flavor. Can't wait to try it.
