Here is a recipe that Mom got from her friend, Jill. They're called Double Chocolate Almond Brownies but we call them DOUBLE CHOCOLATE ALMOND HEAVEN. It has become one of our favorites. Here is the recipe. I hope you enjoy it because I will have the twins post more recipes in the future.

4 squares unsweetened chocolate, 1 oz. each (or we use 4 T cocoa, heaping)
2 sticks butter
1 3/4 cups sugar (we use sucanat)
4 beaten eggs
1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour (we use 1/2 fresh ground whole wheat and 1/2 white for guests, but all ww for us)
a pinch of salt
1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
1 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup sliced almonds (not optional)

Melt together chocolate and butter on low, being careful not to burn. Cool slightly, stir in sugar. Add eggs and mix well. Stir in almond extract. Add flour and salt. Stir until combined but don't over beat the poor batter. Add chocolate chips and give a final stir. Pour into a greased pan, then sprinkle the almonds on top. Bake at 325 for about 30 minutes.
