If you used fine almond meal and the REALLY bashed the amaretti....it should work. For good measure, combine everything in the mixer and just run it on low speed for a few minutes to really make sure its blended. I'll do that with brown sugar that's a little lumpy sometimes.

Great tips, thank you! I will use the extra finely ground almond meal for sure. (Now I just have to stop myself from eating the amaretti before I make the brownies. ;-)

Hi Elle! The Lucky Charms Brownies are made with an odd batter - it's more emulsified than mixed or beaten, which is why the food processor is the ideal tool. I've never tried the recipe with a stand mixer, but if you decide to, I'd make sure that the amaretti are very finely crushed and I'd use almond meal/flour instead of the slivered almonds. I'd beat the butter on its own for a long time until it's almost the consistency of mayonnaise and then I'd add the eggs and proceed with the recipe, beating for longer than the direx for doing this in a processor. Use the leaf/paddle attachment and, when the batter is done, rap the bowl against the counter a few times. If you make the brownies, let me know how it goes - Dorie

Thank you, Dorie! This makes sense. I will try it this way when I make tomorrow and will leave a comment under the recipe. I think this is the year I really need to get a food pro.
PS I'm a big fan! Have made the Korova cookies about 1,000 times. :-)
