I came across this dessert many years ago,in the early 90's as a matter of fact.There used to be a great show on called Home & Family,and that is where this recipe originated.Okay,I know what you are thinking....what is this mess on a plate?Well,it is one of the closest things to chocolate heaven ever!If you are a fan of the molten lava cake,then this is the dessert for you.It looks like a brownie,the top is crispy,but oozes gooey,chocolate deliciousness.Add a scoop of vanilla ice-cream,and you will be a very happy person.
1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. cocoa powder
1c. melted butter,slightly cooled
2 tsp. vanilla
1 c. chopped walnuts
Mix the sugar,salt,flour & cocoa together.Stir in the butter & eggs and mix for two minutes.Add the vanilla and walnuts.Spread into an 8x8 butered baking pan.Place in a water bath(that simply means place this pan into a larger pan ,place in the oven,and add hot water into the larger pan.The water will be surrounding the pan with the fudge.The water should come up at least halfway up the pan.) Bake at 325 degrees for 60-65 minutes.Be careful when you remove it from the oven,as the water will be extremely hot.Let cool slightly,and scoop out with a spoon.Place on a plate,and add vanilla ice-cream if you like...the difference in textures & temperatures is an amazing treat!
