fudgy brownies is such an accurate description for these delicious, sticky on the inside and crunchy on the outside brownies. I had to leave out the walnuts, due to some divurticulitis guests but I'm sure they'd be even more yummy with the nuts. Very easy recipe, I did everything in my 8 cup Pyrex bowl. Also, I didn't put the hot, baked brownies in my fridge (the fridge is kind of small and I don't like to add really hot stuff to it). I set it outside and it cooled off quickly in our 40° temps. Thanks so much chia, we'll be doing this again (my daughter, LauraLoo has her eye on this!)

These were soooo good! I omitted the walnuts but they were still delish! I made them for a tupperware party and everyone asked me for the recipe!

These are really decadent and super-chocolatey! Love the fudgy texture. I made this in a 9" pan so I only baked them for 16mins. I also reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup as I used Valrhona bittersweet choc instead of unsweetened. I also omitted the walnuts as I didn't have any. They didn't really need any frosting, but I made some choc cream cheese frosting and topped them with a slice of strawberry on each square as I'm bringing these to a housewarming party. Thanks for submitting this recipe!
