  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, mix together the brownie mix, egg, water, oil, & extract. Fold in the almonds & dark chocolate. Pour batter into the prepared pan. In another bowl, mix together the cream cheese, honey, & crushed cookies. Drop cream cheese mixture by heaping teaspoonfuls over batter.
