If you've ever had this dessert at Outback Steakhouse, this recipe tastes EXACTLY like it. It is sooo good, but definitley not good for you.

Chocolate Thunder from Down Under

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 (12-ounce) package semisweet chocolate morsels, melted
1 1/2 cups walnut halves (that's one and a half cups)
Heavenly Fudge Sauce (see recipe below)

Combine first 5 ingredients, stirring until ingredients are blended. Stir in melted chocolate morsels and walnuts.
Pour into 9 inch baking pan.
Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack. Serve with ice cream, and, if you want it to be especially good, top it with the Heavenly Fudge Sauce.

Heavenly Fudge Sauce
1 (12-ounce) package semisweet chocolate morsels
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1/2 cup whipping cream (I use heavy whipping cream - may as well do it up right!!)
1/4 cup strong brewed coffee (or add extra dash or three of whipping cream to make up the liquid).

Place chocolate morsels and butter in heavy saucepan. Cook over low heat until chocolate and butter melt, stirring often. Gradually whisk in cream. Cook, stirring constantly, 2 to 3 minutes or until smooth. Remove from heat; stir in coffee (or extra cream). Serve slightly warm. Yield: 2 cups.

Note: scooped into an attractive jar, leftover Heavenly Fudge Sauce makes a great gift for chocolate-lovers. It's good on other desserts (and straight out of the jar with a spoon).

Let me know how it turns out ladies. I've made this a few times and it's like chocolate heaven! I have to double the recipe because it's gone in no time around here.
