Brownies for Two

I am always on the lookout for recipes that are for 2. I found this recipe in a little paperback cookbook "Desserts for One or Two". The recipe calls for walnuts, but any nut will do, and I even substitute different types of chips (chocolate, peanut butter, mint, etc.). It makes 8 brownines, therefore we never get tired of them before the batch is gone. Hope you enjoy.
