    cup baking cocoa

  • 4

    eggs

  • 2

    cups sugar

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1

    cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 2

    cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips

  • 1

    cup chopped nuts, optional

    ounces cream cheese, softened

  • 1-1/2

    cups cold 2% milk; divided

    package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix

  • 1/8

    teaspoon almond extract

  • 1-1/2

Directions

In a small saucepan, melt butter; stir in cocoa until smooth. Remove from the heat. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla for 1 minute. Gradually add flour and salt. Stir in cocoa mixture. Fold in chocolate chips and nuts if desired. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with moist crumbs (do not over bake). Cool on a wire rack. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and 1/2 cup milk until smooth. Add pudding mix and remaining milk; beat for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in extract; fold in whipped topping. Spread over cooled brownies. Refrigerate until set. Just before serving, drizzle with caramel topping and garnish with chocolate curls if desired. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
