These moist cake-like brownies are loaded with crunchy nuts and topped with sweet frosting. If you don't have leftover chocolate sauce, substitute purchased chocolate syrup in this recipe with equally tasty results. —Vickie Overby, Wahpeton, North Dakota

"I used Hershey's syrup in the squeeze bottle. This is more like a Texas sheet cake than brownies. The frosting is more like a glaze. Tasty, but not the best brownie I've made."
