CAN YOU BELIEVE IT???? It's been more than a month since I've featured chocolate here at the Café.
Shame on me! Take heart—this week’s recipe is a simple, gooey, divine treat that whips up in seconds and is the perfect finish to just about anything - breakfast, an afternoon nap, a candlelight dinner. You name it, this recipe works! The hardest part is waiting for it to bake.

From my friend, Cheryl—a native Texan and true Southerner. She is charming, oh-so-cute, and a fabulous cook. A girl’s luncheon or evening at her house is never complete without dessert. This is one of my favorites.

Baked Walnut Fudge

4 eggs, beaten
2 cups sugar
1 cup melted butter (the real stuff)
½ cup flour (yes, that all the flour you need)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
½ cup walnuts (pecans work fine too)
2 teaspoons vanilla

Combine all ingredients and pour into a 9-inch square pan. Set into a larger pan of hot water, about one inch deep. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.

Serve with vanilla ice cream.

Note: This looks like a brownie, but the hot water keeps it soft and fudgy in the center.

Ahhhh. Chocolate! The perfect end to one of your Labor Day Weekend dinners with friends and family. Enjoy.

I like chocolate, but I don't crave it like some people. This recipe, though, is one that's irresistable and best made when company's coming so you're not tempted to finish it off.

If you don't use the water, will it be like a cake brownie? I don't like them soft and fudgy.
