Cut butter into pieces. Place the butter into a large microwave safe bowl and melt it in microwave. With a whisk, blend in unsweetened cocoa. Add sugar and mix well.
In another bowl lightly beat together eggs and vanilla extract. Add egg mixture to the cocoa mixture and blend together. Mix in flour and salt. Fold in walnuts.
Pour into prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes. To test for doneness insert a wooden toothpick into the center of the brownies; it should have some moist crumbs attached to it. Do not over bake!
