Easy to make. Cake like brownie. Make sure to beat the eggs and sugar for the required speed and time otherwise they won't rise. Best with chocolate frosting. Loaded with walnuts and super chocolaty. My favorite brownie recipe.

These are very fudgy brownies, not cake-like at all. When I make these I omit the walnuts, only because of family preferences. When baked they come out nice and thick. They are not too sweet, which I prefer. I made them once and iced them with a marshmallow frosting but that made them way too sweet. Maybe a ganache icing would be good, but then the thin, crisp brownie "shell" would be ruined.

I use Andes Crème de Menthe—unwrap around 24 of them, place them on the top, and put the brownies back in the oven for a minute or so. Then spread the topping & let it cool. Yum!

I went to an event were these brownies were served and loved them immediately. I was lucky enough to be given this recipe. I then cooked them for a family gathering I was invited to and they were a smash hit, especially with that little bit of Carmel topping drizzled on top, Thank you, Susan

I don't usually like brownies much, but these are the BEST. They're fudgy for sure.

They're even better with chocolate chunks instead of/in addition to nuts.

Don't overbake!! Even if they don't seem quite done, take them out. They keep cooking a bit in the pan.
