Those who know my family may be shocked that I actually put nuts into a brownie recipe. This is practically a mortal sin in my household.

But I was making these for a family who suffered a huge loss and volunteered to bring some brownies and cookies. I made two batches, one sans nuts and the other studded with chopped walnuts.

Since brownies with nuts have never made an appearance on my blog, I’m featuring the Chocolate Glazed Walnut Brownies today. Rich, dense and fudgy. With or without nuts, they were amazing.

Comfort Food

There was a huge outpouring of love for this family that’s been a part of our community since we arrived in Indianapolis; they lost a son and grandson, a brother and nephew. The interweaving of our families started when my oldest joined their son in kindergarten and continued as they both joined the rank of Eagle Scout  in high school.

It was a heart wrenching few days as an outsider, hearing the tragic details…I cannot imagine the enormity of grief on the inside. It was comforting to see all the now grown men, and former classmates, dressed in their best suits and ties, paying respect to their friend and his toddler son whose time on earth was way too short.

This news totally rocked my world and reminded me to live every moment to its fullest. The time we have on this earth is out of our hands. I did what I do best to comfort; I offered food. Giving these chocolate glazed walnuts to friends whether for a happy or sorrowful occasion will definitely show you care.Chocolate Walnut Brownies photo and text collage
