ever since I found this recipe on the Ghirardelli can, it's the only brownies I make. I always omit the nuts, but that's personal preference. I tend to double the chocolate chips, which is also personal preference :) they tend to dry out after a day, so make sure everyone eats them up fast!

Got this off of the can, and they were great! I didn't add any nuts and I added probably 1/4-1/2 cup extra chocolate chips. I made two pans and one pan I did half white chocolate chips-yummy! A friend of mine asked for the recipe and I told her they dry out quickly and she said that I should use half butter (for flavor) and half oil (for moisture). I'm gonna try that next time.

So good! I didn't have any chocolate chips, but it was great anyway. I also didn't have an 8 or 9 inch pan, so I just used a pie pan and it worked fine, though a little tough on the edges. I felt the walnuts really added to the texture and flavor. I put some home-made ice cream and chocolate syrup on top and thought I was in paradise!!
