Made only the crust (with pecans rather than walnuts) and, after baking the crust as directed, topped with a traditional brownie mix. My Sunday school kids loved these "Butter Crust Brownies!" Used real butter for the crust and the aroma while the crust was baking was heavenly. I made a triple batch of the crust and pressed it into a pan that is larger than the usual 9 x 13. It's what I call a lasagne pan. The resulting crust was a nice foundation for a classic brownie. A little crunchy and a lot buttery! The perfect counterpoint to the Duncan Hines Chewy Fudge brownie mix. Needed something totally different to jazz up a brownie mix and just knew this addition would be a hit! A huge merci beaucoups to the person who developed/submitted the walnut bar recipe. He/she inspired me! God's blessings to all of you, Frenchie in the Beautiful Bluegrass

IMO, just an average bar. The chocolate part was very, very thin and runny before baking. Also watch the crust while baking, at 20 minutes mine was slightly overcooked. I didn't cut until the next morning (and it was difficult to cut) because the crust was hard, even after sitting for 15 minutes. I don't think I will make this one again.

Don't make these if you would rather not eat the whole pan at once, because you won't be able to stop yourself! They are SO GOOD!!!!! Don't worry if the batter doesn't mix perfectly (I had a lot of little bits of butter that wouldn't mix in). They will turn out very tasty anyways!

I was skeptical while I was making these. The chocolate batter was runny and I didn't think it had set up well. Once they cooled a bit I stuck them in the fridge and I pressed a slivered almond on the top of each bar. They are quite small but so rich and delicious you wouldn't want them any bigger. Great flavor and so easy to make. This one a keeper!

This was a really tasty and easy recipe. The walnut crust was delicious and not too sweet. The chocolate was soft and rich. The combination worked out really well.

I made these bars and took some to the office and some to my son's home. Everyone including me love them.

This was incredibly easy to make although I needed about 25-30 minutes in the oven for the chocolate to set fully. They are delicious straight from the fridge and VERY chocolatey!!!. I will definitely make them again.

Hmmm, the topping is brownie-esque, the crust is great. i was hoping for more of a smooth, less cakey topping but nonetheless it is good. Instead of the powdered sugar I topped it with more chopped walnuts. Only gets 4 stars because it is not quite what I was hoping for.
