These brownies were incredibly good. The Nutella really gives them a kick, so they even taste better than the regular chocolate brownies that you’re used to- and I love brownies anyway.
I made these for my former coworkers at Dynafit, and hopefully they love them as much as I do. Recipe below.
(And I didn’t take my own photo-which I should have!- but luckily the photos from the website are really fantastic. http://www.bunsinmyoven.com/2013/01/03/nutella-brownies/)
And it’s a month from my birthday!
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
2 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup Nutella
4 large eggs
1 1/4 cups cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon espresso powder, optional
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
10 ounce package Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Baking Melts (or chocolate chips)
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9×13 baking dish.
In small saucepan over low heat, melt butter completely. Stir in sugar and continue cooking for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. Do not allow sugar mixture to boil.
Remove from the heat and stir in the Nutella until well combined.
Pour butter mixture into a large bowl or stand mixer, beat in cocoa powder, eggs, salt, baking powder, espresso powder, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.
Stir in the flour and baking melts until just combined.
Spread into prepared pan (batter will be very thick and sticky) and bake for about 30-35 minutes, until a tester comes out mostly clean. The edges should be set and the center should still look slightly moist, but not uncooked. Cool on a wire rack.
