Chocolate Almond Cookie Bites

4 bars (8-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking Bars, broken into pieces
2 large eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped almonds, toasted
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
30 almond slices or slivers

PREHEAT oven to 325° F. Grease baking sheets.

MICROWAVE baking bars in a medium, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute; STIR. The bars may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10 to 15-second intervals, stirring just until melted.

BEAT eggs and salt in a small mixer bowl on high speed for 3 minutes or until thick. Add brown sugar; beat for additional 5 minutes. Beat in melted chocolate and vanilla extract. Stir in chopped almonds and flour. Drop by rounded teaspoon onto prepared baking sheets. Insert one almond slice into top of each cookie.

BAKE for 8 to 10 minutes or until shiny and set. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

FOR CHOCOLATE WALNUT COOKIE BITES: Substitute 1 cup chopped toasted walnuts for almonds. Garnish cookies with walnut pieces before baking.
