This year, for Mother’s Day (since my Mother-in-Law was busy) we opted to have lunch with my family at my sister’s Mother-in-Law’s house. Did you follow that? Ok, good.
I was asked to bring dessert. So, I decided to make two treats. These Nutella brownies and a Lemon cheesecake cheese ball.
For those that might have been living under a rock – Nutella is a wonderfully delicious chocolate hazelnut spread that goes on … well … just about anything. If you’ve never tried it, run to the store now and get a jar. This recipe will be waiting for you when you get back. Seriously, go now!
These brownies were amazing, if I do say so myself! I just added the Nutella and some toasted hazelnuts to my regular brownie recipe (that I found on AllRecipes a while back and have been using ever since).
You should definitely try these!
4 (1 ounce) squares Unsweetened chocolate
1t. Vanilla extract
1C. All-purpose flour
1/2C. Hazelnuts (toasted, please)
1/2C. Nutella (divided)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Microwave chocolate and butter in large bowl at HIGH for 2 minutes or until butter is melted.
Stir until chocolate is melted. Stir in sugar. Mix in eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour 1/4C. warmed Nutella and nuts.
Spread in greased 13 x 9 inch pan. Drizzle remaining 1/4C. warmed Nutella over top of the brownies.
Bake for 35 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted comes out mostly clean).
Husband Rating – 3.5 out of 5 – “I don’t normally like nuts getting in the way of my chocolate brownies…but these were good!”
