 Ingredients List

  • 3 Blocks (3 oz) unsweetened
  • Baking chocolate
  • 1 Stick (1/4 pound) butter
  • 1 1/4 c Sugar
  • 3/4 c Flour
  • 1 ts (or more) vanilla
  • 1 pn Salt
  • 1/4 c Heavy cream
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 c Chocolate chips (plus some
  • To sprinkle on top)
  • 1 c Walnut pieces (plus some to

melting inside; if you stick it through a chip, it will come out
gooey even if the rest of the brownie is burnt to a crisp. So when
you know it's near being done, stick it a few times to be sure you
aren't hitting a chip.

Side note: part of the way through baking, when it's still gooey but
has started to set, sprinkle on the additional nuts. A little while
later, sprinkle on the additional chocolate chips. This way, they get
gooey and cook in to the brownie, but they don't sink down and
