  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking pan.
  2. Melt butter and chocolate in top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching. Remove top of double boiler and stir sugar, flour, eggs, salt, and vanilla extract into chocolate mixture until batter is smooth. Fold walnuts into batter; spread into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Cut brownies while warm.

I doubled the recipe cause we love brownies! I used powdered cocoa instead of bakers squares. I added 1/3 cup more sugar & 4 tablespoons more butter. Yummy! (no nuts for my family)
