You can use any toasted nut of choice in this. I used walnuts this time. I also really like this with toasted, slivered almonds. When I use almonds, I add 1/2 t. almond extract to the topping mix.
4 c. Homemade Brownie Mix
4 eggs at room temperature
2 t. vanilla
1 pkg. (21 oz.) Brownie Mix and ingredients to make brownies
1 c. sugar
1 t. vanilla
1/2 t. salt
2 c. finely chopped toasted nuts
Place the Homemade Brownie Mix in a large mixing bowl. In a small mixing bowl combine eggs and vanilla and beat well. Pour eggs into brownie mix and mix well. OR Prepare brownie mix according to package directions.
Pour batter into a greased 9x13-inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 17 minutes. Meanwhile, combine sugar, egg, vanilla and salt until thick and lemon-colored. Fold in nuts. Spread very carefully over partially baked brownies. Use a spatula and put topping on a little at a time. Return to oven and bake 15 to 20 minutes more. Place pan on a rack to cool thoroughly. Cut into 3x1-inch bars. Makes 58 bars.
