Walnut Fudge Brownies

Yield: 9 large or 16 small brownies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook: 35 minutes

Walnut Fudge Brownies are ultra rich, moist, chewy, chocolaty and loaded with crunchy walnuts throughout. Takes less than 1 hour from start to finish!

Our new GO-TO brownie recipe!! So much better than box mix brownies, but practically as easy! Walnut Fudge Brownies.

Tessa's Recipe Rundown...

Taste: Tons of sweet chocolate cocoa flavor perfectly balanced by the nutty walnuts.
Texture: Super fudgy and moist with a nice chew.
Ease: I think these are almost as easy as box mix brownies, but oh so much tastier.
Pros: Your new go-to classic brownie recipe.
Cons: None whatsoever!
Would I make this again? Absolutely. These are the perfect treat to bring to work, school, or to say “thank you” to someone special.

    I am so glad to hear that your dad is on the mend. What a great treat for the staff. Walnuts in brownies are a must in my book!

    Hi, These brownies look yummilicious
    Is there a substitute for cornstarch?

    • #
      Tessa — March 29, 2017 at 9:44 am

      Thank you! Did you see this inside the post? “Also, the cornstarch in this recipe helps to add a soft yet chewy bite reminiscent of box mix brownies (but without the artificial flavor). If you donโ€™t have cornstarch or donโ€™t want to use it, feel free to omit it. Theyโ€™ll still be delicious.”

    Just loved your recipe. I would love to try these brownies and see how the cornstarch influences the softness of the brownie.
    Thanks for sharing the recipe. Pictures looks amazing.

    Can I substitute semisweet chocolate for the bittersweet? Would I need to reduce the amount of granulated sugar added?
