Walnut Brownies with White Frosting

Walnut Brownies with White FrostingMoist and soft chocolate brownies loaded with chopped walnuts and topped with creamy white frosting. Here is an easy dessert recipe for Walnut Brownies with White Frosting.

1 (1-ounce) square unsweetened chocolate, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup butter or margarine
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup milk
1 cup finely chopped walnuts

Creamy White Frosting
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).

Line a 12-inch square of heavy-duty foil into an 8-inch square baking pan, pressing and patting firmly so the foil snugly covers the bottom and corners of the pan and extends up the sides. Spray the foil generously with nonstick cooking spray.

To make the brownies, combine the chocolate and butter in a small bowl and microwave on high for 1 minute to melt. Stir with a whisk until smooth. Re-heat in the microwave as necessary to completely melt the chocolate. Set aside to cool for about 10 minutes.

In large bowl combine the eggs, vanilla and sugar and, using an electric mixer at high speed, beat for about 3 minutes, until the mixture looks creamy and light. Beat in the cooled chocolate. Add the flour, salt and half the milk and stir until evenly mixed. Add the remaining milk and stir until smooth. Stir in the walnuts. Spread the batter in the prepared pan. Bake about 30 minutes, until the surface looks dry, and a wooden pick inserted off-center comes out almost clean—some moist crumbs on the toothpick are okay. Cool completely before frosting.

For the white frosting, combine the powdered sugar, butter and vanilla in a medium-sized bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until mixture is creamy and smooth. Spread over the cooled brownies. If time allows, refrigerate the frosted brownies for about 30 minutes to set the frosting.

Lift the brownies in their foil from the pan and peel the foil away from the sides. Using a long, sharp knife, cut the brownies into squares. carefully lift the brownies from the foil and transfer in a platter or an air-tight container. Separate layers of brownies with waxed paper or parchment.
