Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Servings 12 servings


  • 12 oz. bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 1/2 cup unsalted butter (3 sticks)
  • 2 1/4 cup sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


  • Preheat oven to 325° F. Carefully line a 9×13" baking pan with foil and spray the foil with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a medium sized saucepan, warm the chocolate and butter over low heat, stirring regularly until both are melted. Once melted set aside.
  • In a stand mixer or using a hand mixer, whip together the sugar and eggs on medium high speed for 3 minutes. Carefully fold the egg/sugar mixture and vanilla into the chocolate. Fold the flour, salt, and walnuts into the chocolate, just until everything is combined (do not over mix).
  • Pour batter into prepared baking pan and bake for 35-45 minutes, until the middle is set and a toothpick comes out clean with a few moist crumbs in the center. Serve warm or refrigerate and serve cold.


– These brownies are best when prepared with nuts, but if cannot make them with nuts (allergies or personal preference), substitute the 1 1/2 cup of nuts with 1 1/2 cups of chopped baking chocolate or chocolate chips.
