Almond Topped Chocolate Brownies

Hello everyone, I hope your day is going well. Today’s recipe is one of my favourite desserts to make….Almond Topped Chocolate Brownies which I love to eat with vanilla ice cream. I enjoy baking brownies because they are easy to bake and taste so good. This recipe is a slight adaptation from my Marshmallow Chocolate Brownies and the only difference is the crushed almonds and icing sugar. I also used the microwave to melt the butter and save time.

100g dark chocolate
1 tbsp cocoa powder
125g butter
50g soft brown sugar
100g caster sugar
