Fudgy Brownies with Walnuts

"The dessert I desire most is a good brownie. And these are really good fudgy brownies. To me, a good brownie has this paper thin crinkly top, is fudgy with a deep chocolate flavor and a silky smooth texture… and with crunchy nuts. I realize that what constitutes a good brownie varies tremendously from person to person. Some like it cakey, some like it moist, some dense and chewy or meltingly tender. It’s honestly a mixture of preferences and not one brownie will be able to stand up to everyone’s needs. However, that being said, these brownies tick all the right boxes for me, they’re a taste and texture lover’s dream and satisfy any chocolate fix out there. Rich and gooey loaded with chopped walnuts, a nice bite and a decent chocolate melt to it. I used coconut oil in the recipe, you can substitute this for unsalted butter. Happy baking!"
