Nutella Brownies

Even though I much prefer cooking over baking, I love to bake delicious treats and send them to family members. My mom loved the Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies with Dark Chocolate Ganache I sent her for Mother's Day, but this time I wanted to make something yummy for my little brother. I knew he loves Nutella and he had made a special request for brownies. I decided to search around to see if I could find a Nutella brownie recipe. I found a bunch that look delicious, but finally settled on this recipe.

They came out so so good, and the Nutella keeps the brownies incredibly moist. I will note, next time I think I'll increase the amount of Nutella. I felt like I didn't get enough of the flavor I was hoping for.

As I was planning to take a photo in the dining room, Sous Chef Bailey decided he needed to supervisor the photography. You can see in the first photo the black blob on the right corner. He then proceeds to plop himself down right in the background.



Ingredients
-1 cup butter
-1 cup granulated sugar
-1 cup dark brown sugar
-2 teaspoons vanilla extract
-4 large eggs
-1 cup all-purpose flour
-3/4 cup of baking cocoa powder
-1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
-1 cup Nutella
-1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat your oven to 350ยบ. In a medium bowl sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

2. On low heat, melt the butter sticks in a small pot. Then add the vanilla and sugar while stirring the mixture until well combined. Remove the pot from heat and let cool. Once cooled, add one egg at a time, making sure each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next. Add in the flour mixture.

3. Over a double-boiler, heat the Nutella until runny. Do NOT microwave. Add Nutella and chocolate chips to the batter. Pour into a greased 9x13 baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes.
