Chocolate and Mixed Nut Brownies

These brownies are delicious, rich and packed with chocolate. They are really easy to make and only require a saucepan to mix and one tray to bake. I tend to use the same recipe for all of my brownies now as I love them so much. They always come out right and are very forgiving.
