    A chewy, fudgy texture and a rich chocolate flavor come from using a saucepan method and two types of chocolate.

    Servings and Ingredients

    ½ c. Hy-Vee butter, plus additional for greasing
    4 oz. bittersweet chocolate, chopped
    1 ½ c. Hy-Vee sugar
    2 tsp. Hy-Vee vanilla extract
    ¼ tsp. Hy-Vee salt
    2 Hy-Vee large eggs
    1 c. Hy-Vee all-purpose flour
    ¼ c. Hy-Vee baking cocoa
    16 whole walnuts


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8x8x2-in. baking pan with foil, extending the foil over edges of pan. Butter foil; set pan aside.
    2. Combine butter and chocolate in a heavy medium saucepan. Cook and stir over low heat until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth; cool slightly. Stir sugar, vanilla and salt into chocolate mixture until combined. Add eggs, one at a time, beating with a wooden spoon after each addition. Stir in flour and baking cocoa just until combined.
    3. Pour batter into prepared baking pan, spreading evenly. Arrange walnuts on top, lightly pressing into batter.
    4. Bake for 30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out almost clean, with a few moist crumbs clinging to it. Do not overbake. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Using the edges of the foil, lift uncut bars out of pan. Cut into bars with a sharp knife.
