Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan. In a large heavy saucepan over low heat, melt 8 tablespoons of butter and chocolate, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in granulated sugar, a teaspoon of vanilla and eggs, one at a time. Blend in flour, and walnuts. Spread in pan and bake until brownies just start to pull from sides of pan, 18 to 20 minutes.
To prepare frosting: In a medium bowl with electric mixer, beat remaining butter and vanilla until creamy. At low speed, gradually add confectioners' sugar and cocoa, alternating with milk, beating well after each addition until frosting is smooth and fluffy. Frost brownies when removed from oven by gently spreading on. Cut into 16 squares.
