Chocolate Nutella Brownies

The secret to this recipe is being able to wait a day before eating!

Of course the brownies can be eaten the same day, but I promise they are even better if you wait.  The brownie becomes super moist and the flavors intensify even more the next day.


Chocolate Nutella Brownies

1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa (for extra chocolate flavor add an additional 2 Tablespoons of cocoa)
small pinch of salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup Nutella plus 2 Tablespoons for swirling
1/4 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine melted butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla.  Add two eggs and beat for 2 minutes.

In a separate bowl mix flour, cocoa, salt and baking powder.  Blend dry ingredients into batter.  Add Nutella and stir in chocolate chips.

Spread batter into a parchment lined 8x8 or 9x9 inch square pan.

In a small bowl put 2 heaping tablespoons of Nutella.  Place in the microwave for a few seconds to soften.  Remove and stir.

Drop Nutella by spoonfuls into several places throughout the batter.  Take a spoon and lightly swirl the batter.

Bake 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes.  The edges should just be set.  This is a moist, gooey dessert.  If you wait until a toothpick comes out clean, it has been in the oven too long.  Do not overbake!

Allow the pan to cool.  Remove the brownies and cut into 9 squares.  Wrap each square individually in plastic wrap and allow to set overnight.

Enjoy!
