Recipe Ingredients for Mexican Brownies

3/4 stick (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
3 ounces bittersweet chocolate (not unsweetened), chopped
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup almonds, toasted until golden and cooled
2 large eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp almond extract
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

Recipe Directions for Mexican Brownies

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. and butter and flour a 9-inch square baking pan, knocking out excess flour.

  2. In a heavy 1 1/2-quart saucepan melt butter and chocolate over low heat, stirring, until smooth and remove pan from heat. Cool chocolate mixture 10 minutes.

  3. In a food processor process sugar and almonds until ground fine. Stir almond mixture into chocolate mixture and add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well with a wooden spoon until mixture is glossy and smooth. Stir in flour, salt, and cinnamon until just combined.

  4. Spread batter evenly in pan and bake in middle of oven 25 to 30 minutes, or until a tester comes out with crumbs adhering to it. Cool brownies completely in pan on a rack before cutting into 16 squares. Brownies keep, layered between sheets of wax paper in an airtight container at cool room temperature, 5 days.
