Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate Brownies

I buy the 6lb. box of Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate brownie mix from Costco. It comes with 5 pouches.
When I have the time, I make the brownies from scratch.


  • 1, 18 oz package or 1 pouch Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Brownie Mix
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds, divided
  • 2 teaspoons instant coffee crystals
  • 1 cup (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil


  • nuts
  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
    Blend mix, water, oil, egg and 1/4 cup almonds until moistened.
    Spoon into lightly greased 8×8-inch pan. Bake 40-45 minutes.
    Cool thoroughly.
    Dissolve coffee crystals in 1 1/2 tsp. hot water. Set aside.
    Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and butter until fluffy.
    Add sugar and coffee mixture.
    Beat until smooth.
    Spread over cooled brownie.
    Melt chocolate chips with oil in microwave 2-3 minutes at 50% power, stirring occasionally.
    Spread over latte icing.
    Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup almonds.
