1/2 Cup Walnuts chopped coarsely

cooking procedure

  1. Preheat oven to 180
  2. Combine just the 1st 8 ingredients NOT THE CHOC CHIPS and WALNUTS in a food processor and process until completely smooth.
  3. Stir in the choc chips and walnuts and pour into a 8 x 8" greased pan. Sprinkle extra choc chips and walnuts over the top and lightly press them in.
  4. Cook for approx 15-20 mins and wait for about 15 mins before cutting if you are disciplined (else you can just grab a spoon , top with Ice cream , run and lock yourself in your room and devour now ... lol )

These will firm up in the fridge.
