Chocolate Amaretto Brownies

Top Review by Breeze144

These are fantastic brownies! Very rich taste and perfect soft texture. Even the icing is to die for, amaretto and chocolate is wonderful!!! I used the powdered cocoa as well and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and they are totally perfect. Also, I had to leave them in the oven for about 5 mins extra to finish cooking. Thanks!
