If you saw my post yesterday, then you read how I'd been procrastinating on writing this post, simply because, and I can't believe I'm saying this, but I had enough chocolate to last a month or at least until I ran out of, which is what happened two days ago. It started with the cake I made for Lindsay's 9th Birthday! It was a Dark Chocolate ganche, and strawberry filled cream cheese heart cake. I got the inspiration from Pioneer Woman's Chocolate Strawberry Nutella cake. With that cake and all the Valentine's chocolate, I could not look at or eat anymore.
I had planned to cover the entire ganache covered cake with cream cheese frosting, except the strawberries left a huge gap between cake layers, so I went with a more open cake concept. I actually like the double black on white look with the heart on top! Oh my gosh, this cake was gone in two days! The recipe was really moist but dense and really easy to make! It is definitely one of my top chocolate go to recipes.
This Nutella glazed brownie recipe is even easier than this chocolate cake recipe, because it only has 4 ingredients and you can make it in one bowl (after you melt the chocolate)! After I took one bite of these brownies, it reminded me of eating a Ferrero Roche, bursting with Nutella hazelnut flavor. Total prep time and baking time was around 30 minutes or less. If you need a quick dessert, or need a chocolate fix immediately, this is one to make.
Dark Chocolate Nutella Brownies
Instructions:1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. In a small saucepan melt the butter and 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips over medium-low heat, stirring frequently. Once the butter is completely melted and the chocolate chips have completely melted, stir in the nutella. Remove from heat to cool for about 5 minutes.
6. If topping, simply glaze brownies with extra nutella and sprinkle with chocolate chips, chopped nuts, or powdered sugar and fresh fruit right before serving.
Here are a couple more Nutella recipes (with or could be made with) I would love to try for next time! Enjoy!
