This brownie-like, caramel goodness with walnuts and lots of chocolate is seriously to die for. Yes, I can't lie… it's rich, but totally worth every sinfully scrumptious bite. (not for the faint at heart) NOTE: it must be made the night before so it can sit in the refrigerator overnight. It's definitely better the next day. After that, you can leave it out on your counter.
