Almond Macaroon Brownies Recipe

Here is one of my most requested Brownie recipes. I start with a Duncan Hines Mix. You can't tell that the "brownie" part is from a mix.

Almond Macaroon Brownies Recipe

1 (19.5-oz.) pkg. fudge brownie mix
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup water
2 eggs

1 (8-oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened

2/3 cup sugar

2 Tbs. flour
2 eggs
2 cups coconut
1 cup chopped almonds, toasted if desired*

Glaze and Garnish

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 tsp. oil
24 whole almonds, toasted

Heat oven to 350F. Grease 9X13-inch baking pan. In large bowl, combine all brownie ingredients; beat 50 strokes with spoon. Spread batter in greased pan.

In medium bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, flour and 2 eggs; beat until smooth. Stir in coconut and 1 cup chopped almonds. Drop spoonfuls of cream cheese mixture over brownie batter; spread evenly.

Bake at 350F. for 30 to 40 minutes or until light golden brown and center is firm to the touch. Cool 45 minutes or until completely cooled.

In small saucepan, combine chocolate chips and oil. Heat over low heat until chocolate is melted, stirring constantly. Drizzle and spread over brownies. Cut into bars. Garnish each bar with 1 whole almond. Store in refrigerator.

Makes 24 bars

* To toast almonds, spread on cookie sheet; bake at 350F. for 5 to 7 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Or, spread in thin layer in microwave-safe pie pan. Microwave on HIGH for 3 to 4 minutes or until light golden brown, stirring frequently.
