Peanut Butter Nutella Brownies

Photo source

Happy World Nutella Day! Oddly, I made these brownies last night completely unaware that today was the big day of celebration for one of my favorite foods. Honestly, had I known I would have tried to come up with something more intricate and impressive. Which isn't to say these Nutella brownies aren't deliciously infused with lots of Nutella flavor and worth the loss of nearly an entire jar of the stuff. The chocolate in the recipe comes entirely from the Nutella and when combined with oodles of butter and brown sugar the brownies are fudgy and flavorful. Add in some peanut butter chips for the win!

Nutella Brownies
Recipe from Sweet Bliss

1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 cup Nutella
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 stick unsalted butter, melted and brought to room temp
3/4 cup peanut butter chips

1) Preheat your oven to 325 F. Prepare a 9 inch square pan by lightly greasing bottom and sides or lining it with parchment paper and spraying it with non stick spray.
2) In a small bowl, sift flour and salt together. Set aside.
3) In another bowl, mix Nutella, eggs, brown sugar and vanilla on low speed until well incorporated and creamy, about 2 minutes or so. Add flour mixture in 2 batches, alternating with the melted butter. Fold in peanut butter chips.
4) Spread in your pan and bake for 25-35 minutes. You want the center to be just set if you like them fudgy.

Yum, that brownie sounds better than any I've ever eaten. The peanut butter chips are a nice touch. I hope you'll come by and link this up to Sweets for a Saturday #3.
