Amaretto Chocolate Brownies

These tasty little chocolate devils come to us from Tyler Florence.


In my words – delicious.

In my husbands words – “For a man that thoroughly dislikes brownies, I couldn’t get enough of them. They were simple, perfectly sweet, no chunky stuff, and the amaretto really made these exceptional. The only problem is that they are gone. Megan needs to make more.”

So with a review like that, what are you waiting for?

Amaretto Chocolate Brownies – adapted from Tyler Florence

2 sticks unsalted butter, plus more for pan
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch salt
4 large eggs
2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons amaretto liqueur
Powdered sugar, for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a 9 by 9 square baking pan with parchment paper, making sure paper hangs over the edges. Grease paper with butter so the brownies don’t stick. Melt butter and chocolate over a double-boiler and stir gently until smooth and shiny. Remove from the heat and cool slightly.
Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt into a mixing bowl and set aside. Whisk together eggs, sugar and amaretto in a mixing bowl until combined. Pour in chocolate mixture and continue to whisk until combined. Gradually add flour mixture, and incorporate with a wooden spoon. Transfer batter to baking pan and bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean when inserted into the middle of the pan. When done, invert onto a cutting board, remove paper and cut into squares. Garnish with powdered sugar and serve.

  2. My family and in-law’s love these brownies too! They were such a big hit that I was asked to make them again. My husband can be a harsh food critic and he said these were the best brownies he’s ever had. That means a lot coming from him. I was thinking of trying them with orange liquor. Glad to hear you loved them too!

  3. Gotta LOVE the husband review! I may have to bake these next time I make brownies. But first I will do a taste test with the Baked brownies and the Sweet Melissa brownies, both of which are in my freezer at the moment!
