Ingredients
  1. 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  2. 1 1/2 cups sugar
  3. 3/4 cup Nutella
  4. 4 large eggs at room temperature
  5. 1 cup cocoa powder
  6. 1 teaspoon salt
  7. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  8. 1 teaspoon espresso powder, optional
  9. 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  10. 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  11. 10 ounce package semi-sweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9x13 baking dish.
  2. In small saucepan over low heat, melt butter completely. Stir in sugar and continue cooking for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. Do not allow sugar mixture to boil.
  3. Remove from the heat and stir in the Nutella until well combined.
  4. Pour butter mixture into a large bowl or stand mixer, beat in cocoa powder, eggs, salt, baking powder, espresso powder and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.
  5. Stir in the flour and chocolate chips until just combined.
  6. Spread into prepared pan (batter will be thick and sticky) and bake for about 30-35 minutes, until a tester comes out mostly clean. The edges should be set and the center should still look slightly moist, but not uncooked. Cool on a wire rack.
  7. Dust lightly with powder sugar.
Notes
  1. When stacking these to store place wax paper between slices to avoid sticking to each other.

Decadent, silky and super easy Italian Brownies with a touch of Nutella.If you’re anything like me, you enjoy a nice chocolaty treat whenever possible. Today’s recipe is a favorite of mine. Traditionally I like to add nuts to my brownies but in this case I decided to add Nutella instead. And if you’re thinking the brownies will be full of Nutella flavor don’t get too excited just yet because it really just offers a silkier texture as opposed to the hazelnut flavor.

 

The chips however offer a touch of crunch that you would normally get from nuts while the espresso adds an ever so light essence of coffee, barely noticeable except if you’re a coffee addict like me you’ll know it’s there. I hope you enjoy these as they are quite simple to make and incredibly delicious. Pinky promise!
