What a wild way to make brownies, "dump" all ingredients in a saucepan. (Remember you have to have the body language correct, one hand on your hip and the other one holding a smoldering ciggy.)
In a sauce pan, melt 1/2 cup real butter, 2 squares of unsweetened chocolate, and 1 cup of sugar.
Remove from the heat and add 3/4 cup flour and 2 beaten eggs.
Then add 1/2 bag of chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of nuts.
Spread into a greased square pan and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool completely before frosting. The commercial type in the plastic cans works well, and then garnish with mini M&M's.
