I’m so sorry my posts have been few and far between lately. I’ve just been so busy both at home and at work, and I haven’t had a chance to do much baking or photo taking. I’m hoping things will calm down here soon and I’ll get a chance to post more frequently. I can’t even believe that Thanksgiving is less than a week away! Once again, it seems like the holiday just totally snuck up on me.
I did get a chance to make these Flourless Chocolate Walnut Brownies this past week though. I love experimenting with recipes and trying to make treats that are eggless, flourless, etc…, just to see how they turn out. Sometimes the result turns out to be great, and sometimes not. Well, without a doubt, these brownies turned out to be absolutely delicious. I must warn though that they are more geared for the serious chocoholics and sweet tooths out there. Since both chocolate chips and cocoa are used in this recipe, the brownies have a very rich, chocolate flavor. The large amount of chocolate, combined with the sugar, also makes them very sweet.
So if you’re a serious chocoholic or have a very large sweet tooth, this recipe is for you. If your sweet tooth isn’t quite that big, then I’d recommend cutting the brownies into very small squares and enjoying just a little piece at a time.
1 cup butter, cut into pieces
10 ounces semisweet chocolate chips (about 1 1/4 cups)
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1 cup sifted unsweetened cocoa powder
6 large eggs
1 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter the bottom and sides of a 8 x 8 inch square baking pan.
Combine butter and chocolate chips in a heavy medium-sized saucepan. Stir over low heat until melted.
In a large bowl, mix the sugar and cocoa powder together. Add eggs and whisk until well blended. Whisk in the chocolate-butter mixture, then fold in the walnuts. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Cut into squares. Dust with powdered sugar; if desired.
