Brownie lovers tend to fall in one of two camps – fudgy versus cakey. I prefer my brownies on the fudge-like end of the spectrum and these decadent Almond Roca brownies are no exception. A splash of Kahlua plus instant espresso intensify the rich chocolate flavor; scattering chopped Almond Roca over the batter adds crunchy toffee goodness.
Best of all, this is a one-bowl recipe, meaning fewer dishes to wash (and more time to indulge in brownie consumption!). October’s Chocolate Party theme is chocolate and candy; view more creations or enter your own below.
Almond Roca Brownies
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp Kahlua
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp instant espresso
2 large eggs
1 large egg white
3/4 cup flour
3 ounces Almond Roca, roughly chopped
Preheat oven to 325°F and line an 11 x 7-inch baking dish with 1 sheet of parchment paper, allowing 2 inches to hang over each end. Place butter, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt in a large bowl and stir the mixture until combined – the texture will appear granular at this point. Stir in Kahlua, vanilla, and espresso; add eggs one at a time, stirring well after each one. When the batter is thick and shiny, add the flour and stir until completely incorporated, then beat briskly for 40 more strokes.
Spread batter evenly in lined pan and tap pan once to remove air bubbles; scatter Almond Roca over batter. Bake for about 22 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out slightly moist with batter. Cool completely on a wire rack. Just before cutting, chill pan in the freezer for 20 minutes. Lift up the ends of the parchment and transfer the brownies to a cutting board; cut into squares using a sharp knife. Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature up to 2 days.
