Superfudge Brownies

From Ben and Jerry's
Yields 12 servings (24 brownies)

4 Ounce(wt)s chocolate, baking, unsweetened 
1/2 Cup butter 
4 Each egg, whole room temperature
1/2 tsp salt 
2 Cups sugar, white 
1 tsp extract, vanilla 
1 Cup flour, all-purpose unsifted

Optional Ingredients:
1 Cup walnuts, English chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and lightly flour a 13 x 9-inch glass baking dish. 

Melt chocolate and butter in the microwave or on top of a double boiler. Let cool to room temperature. If you are in a hurry, you can quickly cool the mixture in the refrigerator, but be sure it doesn't get solid again. 

Beat the eggs, sugar and salt in a mixing bowl until very fluffy; add vanilla and mix to combine. Fold in the cooled chocolate mixture. Add the flour and fold just until blended. Carefully stir in the walnuts. (it is important to fold in chocolate, flour and nuts gently to keep the batter as fluffy as possible). 
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes. Let cool in pan completely before cutting.
