Different, decadent and decidedly delicious, these KIND Bar brownies will not disappoint.
The next item to reveal from the fall MARY’s secret ingredients box is this brand new flavor of KIND bars – Dark Chocolate Mocha Almond. We all LOVE KIND bars, and they’ve been around for a while but this new flavor is truly decadent.
Eating them just as they are is obviously a no brainer. I am recommending three bars to make this recipe so just go ahead and eat the one in the box and then go out and buy three more to make these brownies. I served these as dessert for a small dinner party I had for our friends Wayne and Margaret and honestly each one of us had at least two. The extra burst of chocolate, coffee and almonds makes this brownie a winner! I think ten brownies in total, were eaten by four people. Yikes! And with some ice cream. Double yikes! I just rode my bike for 15 miles the next day to take it all off.
KIND BAR BROWNIES– makes 16
4 oz. unsweetened chocolate (I use Scharffen Berger), cut into chunks
8 Tbs. (1 stick) unsalted butter, plus a little more for greasing pan, cut into tablespoons
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Pinch of salt (French grey salt is the best)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 Dark Chocolate Mocha Almond Kind Bars, cut into chunks
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine chocolate and butter in a medium bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds. Remove and stir and decide whether to microwave for another 30 seconds or keep stirring until all of the chocolate is melted and the mixture is silky smooth. Meanwhile, butter an 8 1/2-inch-square baking pan.
Stir the sugar into the chocolate mixture. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add your pinch of salt and beat until shiny and smooth. Add flour and vanilla and stir to incorporate – no traces of flour should remain, but do not over stir. Add Kind Bar pieces and stir gently just to distribute them.
Pour batter mixture into pan, and smooth out evenly. Bake 20 to 30 minutes, or until set and barely firm in the middle. Cool on a rack completely before cutting into 16 squares and serve. You will be in heaven!
