Cat asked me to post this recipe on the forums and tell everyone she wants a batch whenever someone visits her. Without further adieu, here is the receipe.
- 5 TBSP unsalted butter (1/3 of a cup)
4 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped
2 oz. unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 large eggs
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup walnuts
Preheat oven to 325F. Line an 8x8 inch baking pan with nonstick, or buttered aluminum foil
Put a metal bowl (double boiler) over a pan of simmering water and melt butter and chocolate until smooth. Remove bowl of chocolate and whisk in sugar, and salt. Whisk in the eggs one by one, stirring until mixture is smooth. Add the flour and stir gently until combined. Fold in walnuts.
Bake the brownies for 30 to 33 minutes, or until the top is dull and knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Do not overbake! When the brownies are cool, peel away the foil and cut into 16 small squares.
