Double Chocolate & Walnut Brownies

There is nothing more satisfying, more sweet and more indulgent than a warm brownie full of nuts with a crispy crust and rich gooey chocolate center. Forget those recipes with peanut butter, caramel and other nonsense- just give me the chocolate! And if you must, vanilla ice cream is a more than acceptable topping.
