Fudgy Walnut Brownies

We have lots of great cooks in our clan, so adding to our collection of family recipes is a tradition. I came up with these moist nut-covered brownies while doing my Christmas baking. Now everyone requests them.

    I made this recipe with pecans because I had them on hand. I didn't love the brownie but the topping was delicious!

    I plan on making a double batch next time I bake these brownies. They were a big hit at home and with my co-workers!
