For the British baking queen - Mary Berry. A rich, fudge like brownie. Dotted with walnuts and chocolate chips, this is sure to please.

Note - Brownies should be removed from the oven prior to being cooked all the way through. The top should resemble well set jelly - slightly wobbly. Cool in the tin and slice when cold.
