In a large mixing bowl of a stand-up mixer combine melted chocolate mixture, 1 cup of flour and all the remaining ingredients except the chopped walnuts and powdered sugar. Beat at medium speed, scraping down the sides until well blended. Remove mixing bowl and with a rubber spatula fold in the remaining flour and the walnuts. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour.
