  • 1 (18 ounce) package chocolate cake mix (I use Duncan Hines)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 5 tablespoons chocolate syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3/4 cup slivered almond
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chip


  1. Position one of your oven racks in the center of your oven and preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick baking liner and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl combine the dry cake mix with the flour, melted butter, chocolate syrup, eggs, and both extracts. Use an electric mixer on a low speed and beat until well combined.
  4. Stir in the almonds and mini chocolate chips by hand.
  5. Divide the dough in half, then place halves on prepared baking sheets. Shape each into roughly a 12 x 2-inch log. Flatten slightly.
  6. Place the baking sheet on the center rack of your oven and bake for about 30-35 minutes, or until the logs are firm to the touch.
  7. Cool for 10-15 minutes on the baking sheet and move to your cutting board.
  8. Using a serrated knife slice diagonally into about 1/2 to 3/4-inch slices.
  9. Turn the cut side down on baking sheet and bake about 10-15 minutes or until firm, turning them over halfway through the bake.
