Hazelnut Brownies

November 11, 2009

After a long day of traveling, I couldn’t fall asleep.  Solution?  Make brownies (and then fall asleep)!  It worked like a charm.

You will need:

  • 1 stick margarine
  • 4 oz unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1/4 t almond extract
  • 1/2 t vanilla extract
  • 1 t cherry liquor (optional)
  • 1 c sugar
  • 1 c whole wheat flour
  • handful of hazelnuts, chopped

Then you…

  1. Melt the butter and chocolate on the stove top until smooth.  Allow to cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 350. Line a 13×9 baking dish with foil and grease.
  3. Whisk eggs and salt until light and slightly foamy.  Add extracts, liquor (opt), and sugar and whisk until slightly thick.
  4. Pour in the cooled chocolate mixture and mix with a few quick strokes.
  5. Use a wooden spoon to gently mix in the flour and nuts.
  6. Pour into prepared pan and bake 25-30 minutes.
  7. Allow to cool and then serve!
