Nutella Brownies

A few weeks ago on a Sunday afternoon, I was looking for something to bake. After searching through my bookmarked recipes, I settled on these Nutella Brownies. The recipe is from the wonderful baker Abby Dodge! These are from her book, Desserts 4 Today. Seems I am not the only one searching for a Sunday afternoon treat. Abby blogged about baking these on a Sunday afternoon with her goddaughter.

When I was finished filling the muffin tins, I had 6 brownies.  The recipe said it made 12?  Oops, that was 12 MINI not regular size cupcakes.  I am so bad about not reading the recipe closely!

 These brownies are a delicious Sunday (or any) afternoon treat. I'd like to try them with a different chip, maybe peanut butter or toffee. What combinations can you think of?




Nutella Fudge Brownies

Recipe Courtesy of Abby Dodge
 Yield: 12 brownies
 Here’s what you’ll need:
 1/2 cup Nutella spread
 1 large egg
5 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/4 cup chocolate chips
 Here’s how to make them:
 1. Heat the oven to 350°F. Line a 12-cup mini muffin pan with paper or foil liners.
2. Put the Nutella and egg in a medium bowl and whisk until smooth and well blended. Add the flour and whisk until blended.
 3. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tins (about 3/4 full) and sprinkle evenly with the chocolate chips
 4. Bake until a pick comes out with wet, gooey crumbs, about 12 minutes. Set on a rack to cool completely. Serve at room temperature.
Switch-Ins: In place of the chocolate chips, switch in the following: Chopped toasted nuts 1/4 cup

  1. Oh my gosh. Nutella brownies are so good. The muffin liners are a good idea with these. They would certainly help me decide on a serving size :)

  5. Hi Julie!

    This is Joy of "Hot Oven, Warm Heart"- you probably don't remember me, as I took a long hiatus from blogging, but I found a comment you left on my last post. I just jumped back into the world of food blogging, and I'd love it if you'd stop by whenever you get a chance! After reading your post about the Nutella Brownies (which look delicious, by the way), I thought "what a coincidence!" My friend Hanaâ runs a baking group called "Avid Bakers Challenge," and this year we're working from "The Weekend Baker" by Abby Dodge. If you're interested in learning more, there's a link on my blog, both on the right hand side as a badge, and within my latest post. Just thought you might be interested!

    Hope to hear from you soon,
    Joy
