  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Chocolate, Desserts

 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Shortening
  • 4 oz Sq unsweetened chocolate
  • 2 c Sugar
  • 4 Eggs; beaten
  • 2 tb Amaretto
  • 1 1/2 c Flour
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • Handful sliced almonds


1/4 c Butter or margarine
2 tb Half-and-half
1 oz Sq unsweetened chocolate
1 ds Salt
2 1/2 c Powdered sugar, sifted
2 tb Amaretto

Note: 2/3 cup powdered baking cocoa can be substituted for the chocolate
squares. Combine shortening (Crisco butter-flavored is good, or I've used
margarine to be cholesterol-conscious) and chocolate in heavy saucepan;
place over low heat, stirring constantly, until combined. Remove from heat
and cool. Stir in eggs and amaretto. Combine flour and salt; add to creamed
mixture, stirring well. Pour batter into a lightly greased 13 x 9 x 2" king
pan. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes; cool. Frost with Amaretto frosting,
sprinkle with sliced almonds (or arrange in flowery patterns). Cut into
squares. Note: 3 Tbs powdered baking cocoa can be substituted for chocolate
squares. Combine butter & chocolate in a heavy saucepan; place over low
heat and stir constantly until melted. Stir in half and half. Add powdered
sugar, salt, Amaretto, stirring until smooth. Yield: Enough frosting for 2
dozen brownies. (Original recipe from Gayle Scott, Chesapeake, VA) Shared
