·         Melted butter to grease
·         1/2 cup butter, softened
·         1 cup sugar
·         1 teaspoon of vanilla
·         4 eggs
·         ½ cup of Almonds, chopped
·         1 can (16 ounces) chocolate syrup

·         ¾  teaspoon almond extract
·         1 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
·         1/2 teaspoon salt

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in chocolate syrup, vanilla and ½ tsp extract. Combine flour and salt; gradually add to chocolate mixture. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. For frosting, in a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and 1 cup whipped topping; stir until smooth. Cool. Fold in ¼ tsp extract and remaining whipped topping. Spread over cooled brownies. Sprinkle with almonds. Store in the refrigerator.
