Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, rack on the middle level. Grease a 8 x 8 x 2 - inch metal baking pan and set aside.
Over low heat, melt the chocolate and butter together. Stir to blend and set aside to cool.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the eggs; then gradually add the sugar, beating until well mixed. On low speed, add the vanilla and the cooled chocolate and butter mixture. Add the flour and the salt, beating just to mix. Stir in the walnuts. Transfer to the prepared pan and level the top.
Bake for 30 minutes, until just done. Remove the pan to a rack and let cool completely. Cut into 16 squares. Store in a tightly closed container at room temperature. For freshness as well as looks, each one can be wrapped in plastic wrap.
