Reviews forAlmond Truffle Brownies
"I've been making this exact recipe since 1990. (Except I use amaretto.) It was given to me by my Secret Santa. It's a favorite."
"These are amazing! Very rich and decadent and everyone loves them! I used homemade brownies instead of a mix, and left the nuts out of the dough, but they still turned out great."
"that looks extremely delicious!!!!!"
