Tasty Tuesdays: Classic Fudge Walnut Brownies

Welcome to Tasty Tuesdays!

Apparently, I have a sweet tooth lately - desserts for Tasty Tuesdays two weeks in a row!  This is a great recipe for brownies.  I think these were probably the most chocolaty brownies I have ever had.  The recipe comes from the September 2011 issue of Cooking Light and can be seen right here.

- 3/4 all-purpose flour
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chunks, divided
- 1/3 cup fat-free milk
- 6 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, divided
- Cooking spray

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2.  Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 5 ingredients (through salt) in a large bowl. Combine 1/2 cup chocolate and milk in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave at HIGH 1 minute, stirring after 30 seconds. Stir in butter, vanilla, and eggs. Add milk mixture, 1/2 cup chocolate, and 1/4 cup nuts to flour mixture; stir to combine.

3.  Pour the batter into a 9-inch square metal baking pan coated with cooking spray; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup nuts. Bake at 350° for 19 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out with moist crumbs clinging. Cool in the pan on a rack. Cut into squares and serve.

{ The recipe calls for a metal 9" baking pan, but I only had an 8" one, so I used a glass baking dish instead. }

The brownies definitely tasted great, but they were so moist and chewy that I had a hard time cutting nice squares.

The chocolate won me over though.
