Fudgy? Check… Sweet? Check… Crackly Top? Check… Plenty of Nutella? Double Check!
These Nutella Brownies have it all. The crackly top, the ultra fudgy, melt-in-the-mouth brownie and the ooey gooey pockets of Nutella throughout. Welcome to day two of Nutella Week.
These are (if I do say so myself), the best Nutella brownies you will ever eat/make. There is Nutella mixed right into the mixture and to take it one step further, we have pockets of pure Nutella throughout the brownie.
You see oozing, gooey chocolate in the photos?
Yep. That’s Nutella.
I have found with past Nutella brownies they either aren’t fudgy enough or they don’t have enough of the Nutella flavour. I mean, the classic chocolate hazelnut flavour is the most important part of a Nutella brownie am I right?
These brownies do not disappoint on either aspect and will not let you down!
As you can see, they are ultra fudgy while remaining light and fluffy. Make sure you really do beat the sugar and eggs together well to ensure this light and fluffy texture. I also use milk chocolate to supplement the Nutella over cocoa or dark chocolate. I found the milk chocolate gave the all important chocolate flavour without overpowering the delicate Nutella.
In all honesty, I made these on a whim. (A 10:00pm, couldn’t-stop-thinking-about-the-half-eaten-open-jar-of-Nutella whim). You know those whims?
Since they turned out so amazingly good (even my Mum agreed and she didn’t initially agree with my whim) that I had to revisit them the next day and check this wasn’t a one off fluke recipe…. Needless to say, it was not a one off. These Nutella brownies turned out perfectly the second time. And the
third fourth time. You know…. For control purposes…
