Dark Fudge Walnut Brownies

These are deliciously dark, fudgey and nutty chocolate brownies. I love to add some walnuts to give the fudgy brownies some crunch. Any nut will work so if you’re not a fan of walnuts substitute for your preferred choice. This is a great sweet treat to have ready in the evenings. Store the recipes in an air tight container and they will last up to 4-5 days.
