Today is world nutella day, in honor of this amazing day, I decided to make nutella-peanut butter brownies. The originial recipe is here.
You can only use delicious so many times before it seems to lose it’s meaning. And when you bake a lot, you seem to say it all the time. I think I need to invest in a good thesaurus.
These brownies are pretty decadent. As in, you might not want to eat more than a couple, unless you want to die.
They are super rich, but oh so tasty. Kind of cakey at first, which I actually like in a brownie, but once they sit a while they get more brownie-ish.
After a minor incidient with the oven, (I thought we were out of propane! Oh No! These just needed a little longer to cook) these came out really well. All in all, a really good brownie. I’ll definitely be making this one again.
Go out there and buy yourself some nutella!
1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter
2 cup sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup nutella
1/2 cup peanut butter
In a medium bowl combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
Over low heat melt the butter, then stir in the sugar and vanilla extract until well combined.
Add the eggs to the sugar mixture, one at a time. With a wooden spoon mix in each egg until well combined.
Add the cocoa mixture to the sugar-egg mixture and whisk until fully combined.
In a microwave safe bowl, add the nutella and the peanut butter. Heat in the microwave in 20 second intervals, until runny.
Pour the batter into a glass 9 x 13 pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 30 minutes (mine took more like 45.) in a 350 degree oven.
