Cut candy bars into quarter inch to 1/2 inch pieces in separate bowl and coat with 1/4 cup of flour and set aside.
Add remaining 1 1/4 cup flour to brownie mixture and beat vigorously for one minute.
Add candy bars to brownie batter and gently fold into mixture.
Pour batter into greased 9 x 9" pan,
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle nuts and chocolate to the top of the batter and return to the oven for an additional 10-15 minutes. DO NOT OVER BAKE! Take out when center is still a little giggly for gooey brownies. If you prefer more cake like brownies cook a few minutes more.

Personal Notes:
This is a big family favorite, very rich and decadent! Definitely, a chocolate lovers dream! I serve it with whipped topping or with vanilla ice cream with a little hot fudge on top. I don't even want to know how many calories this is! Worth the splurge!!!
My sweet niece Lisa, asks for a pan of these for Christmas. Her husband Andy, says to please make two pans of brownies, as Lisa doesn't want to share! Love you Lisa!!!
