    Another Pillsbury Bake-Off winner. I'll be making this for the first time for a Death by Chocolate night. It sounds easy and delicious.

      This is a fudge brownie for sure! The creamy-like consistency makes this a cross between fudge and a brownie and they are just super-delicious! They set up beautifully for cutting into squares and a little goes a long way because of their rich sweetness. I normally eat Healthy Choice ice cream but skipped it for this recipe and went straight for the Haagen Daaz. (Tough thing to have to do I tell ya). I also used Betty Crocker Super Moist cake mix and Hersheys chocolate chips. Chef Dee, thanks so much for sharing these- we devoured them!

      They are a version of ultra glorified brownies. But, Man, are they good! My family and co workers loved them. Don't forget to press the nuts into the crust before baking for 10 minutes. I cover the pan when it was still slightly warm. This made the top moist. The recipe is right, DO NOT OVERBAKE!
