Brownies With Nuts
1/2 stick butter or margarine, melted
1 cup chopped nuts, divided
1 (23 ounce) package brownie mix
Pour melted butter into a baking insert designed to fit into your slow cooker. Swirl butter around to grease sides of insert. Sprinkle butter with half of the nuts. In a bowl, mix brownies according to package directions. Spoon half of the batter into baking insert, trying to cover the nuts evenly. Add remaining half of nuts. Spoon in remaining batter. Place insert into 5 quart slow cooker. Cover insert with 8 paper towels. Cover cooker. Cook on high for 3 hours. Do not check or remove cover until last hour of cooking. Then insert toothpick into center of brownies. If it comes out clean, the brownies are finished. If it doesn’t, continue cooking another 15 minutes. Check again. Repeat until pick comes out clean. When finished cooking, uncover cooker and baking insert. Let brownies stand for 5 minutes. Invert insert onto serving plate. Cut brownies with a plastic knife (so the crumbs don’t drag). Serve warm.
