I am starting the week with a chocolate and Nutella treat. When it comes to desserts and traditional American favorites, brownies could be one of the most popular if not the favorite of them all. Depending on their density brownies can be of either fudgy, cakey, or moist. They are also called blondies when prepared without chocolate.
These brownies have nutella in them and that makes them spectacular! I am sure you will like them very much. I have waited a too long to share a recipe for brownies, but here goes, a very rich and delicious brownie recipe! Get your nutella bottle and enjoy this decadent chocolate dessert.
This post is dedicated to my lovely daughters who always eat all the nutella and leave the empty bottles in the pantry. I love you girls!
Chocolate Nutella BrowniesIngredients:
1½ cups all-purpose flour sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
2 sticks butter
2¼ sugar 1 cup nutella
1¼ cup cocoa powder
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup walnut coarsely chopped (optional)
Pink and red Fondant for the hearts (optional)
1. Grease a 9 x 13 baking pan. Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt, sift together and set aside.
2. In a small saucepan melt butter over low heat, add sugar and cook about 3 minutes until sugar dissolves into the butter; do not allow to boil. Remove from heat and add nutella. Whisk until completely combined.
3. In a mixer on low speed combine nutella mix, eggs, cocoa, and vanilla. Stir in flour mix and mix until combined.
4. Pour brownie batter into prepared pan, and topped with walnuts. Bake at 350 F for 20-25 minutes until edges are set and center in moist. Cool on rack and cut to shape, and size that you prefer. Decorate with hearts made out of fondant to suit the special occasions.
Yield: 12 – 15 squares.
Notes: Walnuts can be added with the flour if you prefer to have them inside. I like them as a nutty crust and place them when batter is already spread in pan.
