I was looking for recipes that had Nutella as an ingredient and look at what I found? Nutella Caramel Hazelnut Brownies! Don't these look divine? The recipe is from bellalimento.com. My mouth is watering already.
- 2 large fresh eggs
- 1/2 stick unsalted butter - room temp.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- pinch salt
- 1/4 cup Nutella - melted
- 1/4 cup Caramel Sauce- melted
Spray an ovenproof 8 x 8 dish with cooking spray. Place a piece of parchment paper (slightly larger than your dish to allow for handles) inside. It will adhere to bottom of dish. Take HALF of your brownie batter & smooth it on top of the parchment paper. Take your caramel sauce and spoon it on top of brownie mixture covering entire layer of brownie. Place the remaining brownie batter on top smoothing it out. Place in oven and bake for 30-40 minutes until sides are firm and center is no longer giggly.
Allow brownies to cool completely before removing. Cut your brownies to your desired size using a serrated knife. Make a small indentation with your finger into each brownie. Take your melted Nutella and drizzle over the tops of the brownies. Garnish with the hazelnuts.
