These brownies have developed a cult following among many of the regulars at Yorktown Height's Gersky's. Make them yourself and you'll see why. They're dark and devilish!

These brownies are sensational!! Didn't have any almonds or milk chocolate chips on hand, but used pecans and semisweet chips with great results.Thanks for sharing :)!!!!

Very good - I used walnuts rather than almonds (personal preference) and used the raspberry jam I had - I melted it slightly first so that it would spread more evenly. I'll sure make this again.

As an extreme brownie lover, I knew I wanted to find a really great recipe to demostrate at my "Cooks and Books" club. I made it a few days ago, and my husband told me these are the best brownies I have ever made. I would have to agree. They are sooo good! I made the recipe exactly as instructed, but found that in my oven, they had to bake 27 minutes before the toothpick came out clean. I also didn't find any fresh respberries for a garnish, so that was kind of a bummer. Thank you for sharing your delicious recipe!
