Melt chocolate and butter over low heat or in the microwave until melted. Watch closely as this can burn easily.
Beat sugar, eggs, vanilla and salt.
Stir in flour and baking powder.
When cool, add the chocolate/butter mixture and stir until well combined.
Now you have an option. Mix in the walnuts or lay them on top. I like the walnuts on the top of the brownies (as in the picture). Some people like them mixed in. I have found that my kids don’t like nuts in brownies, but I love them, so I put them on top. That way the kids can pick them out, and people who are allergic to nuts will clearly see the brownies have nuts in them. I generally make the pan with half nuts/half no nuts.
Pour the mixture into a greased 9" x 12" pan.
Bake at 350F degrees for 25-30 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
