    As suggested I cut down the butter and they were not greasy. Very tasty and chocolaty! The nuts made them fabulous!

    Very tasty but oh, so greasy. Next time I'll use less butter. Perhaps only one stick. Way, WAY too oily!

    These are oh so yummy. Fudgey, chocolatey goodness. When I made them I served the first batch warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a small amount of chocolate syrup. It was everything a dessert should be, richly decadent.
