Brownies with or without nuts?

Brownies are a big deal here. I just recently tried Ghardelli Brownie mix with nuts. It was delicious except I think the walnuts in the mix could have been a bit smaller. I usually use Duncan Hines Brownie mix because we like the taste. However, I was tempted to try this brand because it had walnuts in it already. If you add your own walnuts to the batter it can be a bit expensive.

  • I am allergic to walnuts, so typically I buy the kind without nuts and add almonds, macadamias, or cashews. Brownies with macadamias and coconut are amazing!

  • Without. I love nuts, but for some reason in Brownies and on Sundaes I prefer to skip them. :)

  • Without. It bugs me that most of my favorite foods usually come with nuts or mushrooms. Brownies are probably my favorite thing ever, but I don't like nuts.

  • I like nuts in brownies, I think it cuts the sweetness and adds an interesting texture.

  • I'm not a nut fan..

    however my friend from work used this recipe before and it was delicious:

    pour brownie batter in cupcake molds and on the top push in a small reeses peices cup.. mmmhhhmm. Good. Very simple to add, and very much worth it. Great for parties and such as well.
