    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Plan ahead the brownies have to chill for 2 or more hours for the ganache to set properly. Prep time includes making ganache. I also added in a handful (didn't measure!) of mini chocolate chips to the batter along with the nuts, but that is optional. These brownies are wicked!
