I just saw that you posted a great one in another thread (thanks by the way)

I like one on recipezaar that is posted by Dancer. It has walnuts in it and they are very good. I make them in 8 in. round pans and then fill and top with chocolate fudge icing or ganache.

I am a scratch baker except when I bake with my friends kids, then it's mixesa ll the way.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the ghiradelli brownie mix. They are the best brownies I have ever eaten. you could throw in some walnuts.

as far as chocolate frosting goes, this one is fabulous and chocolatey but it takes a few hours to set up so it might not work for your needs today

You might want to make half a recipe as it makes a lot

I too love the ghiradelli brownie mix. Soooo yummy. I have a friend that does a basic brownie mix, but she does two batches and pours half the mix in then puts hershey chocolate bars in the middle and pours the rest of the mix on top. YUMMO!!! I've also made brownies using cake mix, the duncan heinz dk choc fudge mix.
1 chocolate cake mix
1/4 c. cooking oil
1/3 c. water
1 egg

Did these in a pinch with no time to get brownie mix but I had chocolate cake mixes.

Good luck girlie! Send me the extras!

I am a scratch baker also but I will 2nd the vote for the Ghiradelli brownie mix. I love it. I use the one with caramel and it is devine. They make one with walnuts also.
