In the 366 days since I last made the marcona almond, browned butter, chocolate chip, salty-sweet, squares of complete and utter deliciousness, I have only thought about them 74 times. That is once every 4.97 days.
Which really makes it quite a feat of self-control that I have not made them again. Until this week.
It was complete happenstance that as I was wheeling my cart through the grocery store I bumped into the shelf and a bag of the almonds floated down amongst my other items to be purchased.
It seemed fate was intervening and I am not one to mess with fate.
I just want to say that the second time I made these Marcona Almond Blonde brownies they may have been even better than the first. I can't exactly remember the number of superlatives I used to describe them 366 days ago, but I CAN tell you that today they were positively lip-smacking good.
What is it about that touch of salt in a sweet dessert that turns me from a rational human being into a dessert eating machine?
Recipe is here. Don't say I didn't warn you though.
