Truffle Topped Amaretto Brownies

This unique triple layer amaretto brownies are the perfect way to impress guests for a party. The first layer is amaretto chocolate brownies, topped with a cream cheese amaretto mixture and then finished with chocolate ganache and garnished with toasted almonds and cherries. It's like eating a brownie sundae!

Yields: 48

Cooking Time: 30 min

Ingredients
  • 21 1/2 ounces package Fudge Brownie Mix
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons amaretto or 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup chopped almonds or l/2 cup chopped glace (candied) red cherries
  • 8 ounces package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons Amaretto or 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • Red glace cherries
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 13x9-inch pan.
     
  2. In large bowl, combine all brownie ingredients (up to but not including cream cheese). Beat 50 strokes by hand. Spread batter in greased pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 26 to 33 minutes or until set. Do not overbake. Cool completely.
     
  3. In small bowl, beat cream cheese and powdered sugar at medium speed until smooth. Add melted chocolate chips and 2 to 3 tablespoons amaretto; beat until well blended. Spread filling mixture over top of cooled brownies. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until firm.
     
  4. In small saucepan over low heat, melt l/2 cup chocolate chips and whipping cream, stirring constantly until smooth. Carefully spread evenly over chilled filling. Sprinkle with sliced almonds; garnish with candied cherries. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until set; cut into bars. Store in refrigerator.  
Notes

If using almond extract instead of amaretto, increase water in brownies to 1/2 cup; use almond extract and 2 tablespoons milk in filling.

To toast almonds, spread on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F for 5 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Or, spread in thin layer in microwave-safe pie pan. Microwave on HIGH for 3 to 4 minutes or until light golden brown.
