Nutella Brownies

This recipe was given to me by a friend and I made a few slight changes to taste but wow is this dessert amazing! It went so fast I didn’t even have time to take a decent picture so I will be making this again and taking lots of pictures for you guys! Think of a brownie, topped with fudge, topped with a ganache. That’s pretty much what you have here! 

Enjoy!

Brownie

3/4 cup butter, melted

1 cup sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 eggs

3/4 cup flour

6 tbsp cocoa

1/4 tsp baking powder

Fudge

14 – ounce can sweetened condensed milk

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature

1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

1 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread, such as Nutella

Topping

6 oz chocolate chips

1 tbsp shortening
Directions:

To make the brownie:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×9 baking pan.

2. Combine the butter, sugar and vanilla extract in a medium sized bowl.

3. Add eggs and mix until well combined.

4. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in another medium sized bowl.

5. Slowly add dry ingredients to the egg mixture until well combined.

6. Pour the batter into the pan and spread evenly.

7. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs.

Once the brownie is cooled, make the fudge:

8. Combine sweetened condensed milk, butter, chocolate chips and Nutella in a metal or glass bowl. Set the bowl over a pot of simmering water.

9. Stir mixture until everything is melted and smooth, then spread evenly over the brownies.

10. Set brownies in refrigerator to set.

11. Once set, add chocolate chips and shortening for topping to a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on 15 second increments until the chocolate and shortening are melted and smooth.

12. Spread chocolate into an even layer over the fudge.

13. The chocolate should cool quickly and become firm. Cut into bars.

Store brownies in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Brownies are best for 2-3 days, but should be ok for up to 4-5 days.

    1. My friend used unsalted butter in the brownies and added a little salt. So if u want, that works also. Overcooking and undercooking makes this recipe a challenge. But I am sure you can handle it! 🙂
