Salvadorian Amaretto Chocolate Brownies with Walnuts

  • 6 ounces 70% coco chocolate

  • 1/3 cup Salvadorian Amaretto liqueur

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease baking pan thoroughly with butter so the brownies don't stick

  4. Remove from the heat and cool slightly
  5. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt into a mixing bowl and set aside
  6. Whisk together eggs, sugar and amaretto in a mixing bowl until combined
  7. Pour in chocolate mixture and continue to whisk until combined
  8. Add flour mixture, then add walnuts and incorporate with a spoon
  9. Transfer batter to baking pan and bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a knife comes out clean when inserted into the middle of the pan
  10. Let cool completely and serve
I first saw this recipe on the Food Network show Tyler's Ultimate. It looked mighty good. When I went to go make them I decided to up the amount of Amaretto so that you could taste its almondy goodness....and mmmm they were mighty good. You should make sure to keep an eye on these while they are in the over so they dont overcook and get dry on you. This is a good one for the chocolate and nut lovers. Hope yall enjoy!
