Southern Living


1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts, toasted
1/2 cup almond liqueur
1 cup butter
8 (1-ounce) unsweetened chocolate squares
5 large eggs
3 1/3 cups sugar
1/4 cup Swiss mocha instant coffee mix
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt


Soak chopped walnuts in liqueur 4 to 6 hours. Drain, discarding liqueur. Set walnuts aside.

Melt butter and chocolate in a heavy saucepan over low heat.

Beat eggs, sugar, and coffee mix at medium-high speed with an electric mixer 8 minutes. Gradually add chocolate mixture, beating at low speed until blended. Gradually add vanilla, flour, and salt, beating until blended. Stir in walnuts. Pour into a lightly greased aluminum foil-lined 13- x 9-inch pan.

Bake at 350° for 35 to 45 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into squares.

Note: For testing purposes only, we used International Coffees Suisse Mocha for coffee mix.
