I have Nutella on the brain. I can’t seem to get it off my mind.
For months and months I have been buying Nutella with the intention of baking something utterly delicious, but it just disappears too quickly. We spread it on English muffins, we use it in sandwiches with peanut butter, and it is our favorite crepe ingredient. But if I am going to be really honest here, then I have to admit that sometimes the spoon just seems to find its way in the jar and before you know it, the whole jar is gone! Do you have that problem too? Well, if you can manage to save 3/4 cup of Nutella, then you can make these deliciously decadent brownies.
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup Nutella
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
½ cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8×8 pan and set aside. Cream together the sugar and butter. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add the salt, cinnamon, cocoa powder, and Nutella. Fold in the flour and the chocolate chips; combine all the ingredients. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool completely in pan and then slice and serve.
Kitchenarian Notes: These brownies are very fudgy. You can add another 1/4 cup of flour if you like your brownies more cake-like.
