This recipe is from New York Times Cooking and has yet to be tried in my kitchen…but soon very soon!


  • ½ cup cocoa
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 cup broken-up walnuts or pecans
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  •  pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Melt butter in saucepan with cocoa and stir until smooth. Remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes. Whisk in eggs, one at a time. Stir in vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine sugar, flour, nuts, and salt. Add to the cocoa-butter mixture. Stir until just combined.
  4. Pour into a greased 8×8 square pan. Bake 40 minutes. Do not overbake; they should be gooey. Let cool, and cut into bars.
