You'll score points with a crowd when you stir together these delicious fudge-like treats. They're very moist and rich. The chocolate chips and walnuts make a pretty topping. —Frank Bee, Eugene, Oregon

Ingredients

  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar and cocoa; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in eggs. Set aside 1-1/2 cups for topping.
  2. Press remaining crumb mixture into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 6-8 minutes or until set.
  3. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine milk and 1 cup of chocolate chips; cook and stir over low heat until melted. Carefully spread over crust. Combine reserved crumb mixture with nuts and remaining chips. Sprinkle over chocolate layer.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until top is set (chips will not look melted). Cool before cutting.
