Happy nutella day!

IMG_8668IMG_8677
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.

batter.

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
4 eggs
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.

  6. I think my heart just stopped...from the excitement of nutella, not from the calories :)

    hey, so just wanted to let you know, one of my co-workers saw me drinking a coffee the other day using my super cool reusable coffee sleeve, and was jealous of it. So I sent her the link to your blog and to your etsy sight. I hope she buys one/some from you! :)
    BTW, I LOOOOOVE mine. I totally want to buy a coffee every where I go, just so I can sport by coffee sleeve and feel all cool and eco ;)
