Ladies - Is Aunt Red coming to visit soon? Feeling a little cranky-pants? If so, this recipe is for you! Fancy Nancy, aka my fabulous mother, has perfected a rich, fudgy, nutty, chewy, fast to make brownie recipe that has been hand tested and proven to cure all symptoms of PMS! Forget the Midol. Here's what you do: get rid of the boyfriend/husband/man-servant/valet/bitchboy, turn on the Real Housewives of New Jersey, tuck into one or five of these babies, and you're cured! I swear it works. Thanks are not necessary. Just send $5 bucks to my house.

Fancy Nancy's Walnut Brownies



  • 1 1/2 cups sugar

  • 2 cups flour

  • 2 squares unsweetened baking chocolate

  • 6 eggs

  • 12 oz. bag of semi sweet chocolate bits

  • 1/2 lb salted butter ( 2 sticks) softened

  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts - or more if you love nuts

  • 1 tsp vanilla


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the baking chocolate and chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Nuke em' for about 2-3 minutes until everything is melted together but be careful not to burn the chocolate. Stir it around until you have a silky consistency. Meanwhile in a large bowl, cream the butter, sugar, and vanilla together. Beat the eggs and add them to the butter and sugar mixture. Now, start adding your chocolate and flour to the butter and sugar mixture, alternating and adding a little at a time. Finally when everything is mixed in, add your walnuts. Pour the chocolate love mix into a greased and floured 9x13 brownie pan or pyrex. Bake for 30 minutes.
