  2. Place all ingredients, accept walnuts, in a bowl and mix together.

  4. Take first brownie layer out of the fridge, and if went touched, is nice and firm, pour over half the frosting.
  5. Spread the frosting so it covers the entire brownie layer. Add the crushed walnut pieces onto of the frosting layer and place back in the fridge to harden.
  6. Repeat the brownie filling then brownie frosting steps so you create a filling, frosting, filling, frosting layered effect
  7. Before you put the last layer of frosting into the fridge to set crumble over some walnuts as a topping
