Brownies or Chocolate Brownies refers to slices of flat baked dense chocolate cake. These are usually sliced in squares although some like it in bars.
Brownies come in several forms. What we have here are fudgy brownies with walnuts. Personally, I prefer fudgy or moist brownies over the dry ones because I can enjoy the taste right after the first bite. Also, I can eat this anywhere without having a dry feeling in my mouth.
The walnuts are added to provide extra flavor and texture. The taste of plain brownies tends to be ordinary after having it for a while; adding chopped walnuts makes the flavor rich and interesting. I understand that this ingredient is not readily available in some places. If in case you cannot grab some walnuts, try using pecans, peanuts, or cashews.
