I usually double this recipe and omit the walnuts since I don't like nuts. It makes a very rich, fudgy brownie, perfect for chocoholics!

They are fudgy alright. The only problem is that they came out too thin. I think its better to double the recipe and still bake in the original required baking pan

It's the first time i made brownies and it turned out so great becasue of the recipe. I double the batch and skipped the walnuts with a few chocolate chips instead. It took me not more than an hour. I think I can use less sugar next time. cheers.

I liked the taste and texture of these brownies -- easy to make and I had no problems getting them out of the pan -- but I found the batter spread a bit too thin for my liking. I made a double batch and split it into 2 pans but next time I'd put it all in one for a thicker brownie. As others say, make sure not to overcook them. Although they come out pretty soft they definitely firm up once cool.
