Right now, at this very moment, all I can think about is these Nutella Brownies. I wish I had them next to me. I should start writing these posts while I still have said food in the fridge, or on the counter.
So… 2-Ingredient Nutella Brownies… I think I just stepped into Gluten-Free territory, and I didn’t even mean to.
I have made these brownies a million… no… a gazillion times, and this is a good time as any to share them with you.
Truth is, I didn’t want to share the recipe until I figured out a way to make these less eggy, if you will.
In fact, I was very skeptical about these brownies when I first made them. I thought, there is no way that a few eggs and a delicious jar of Nutella are going to bake-up together and give me a dessert that I can really enjoy.
It wasn’t quite as simple as I thought it was going to be to make these, but praise the heavens, I found a solution.
Lemme tell ya. It turns out that, one, you need to beat those eggs to death… with an electric mixer, of course… and then, you have to warm up the Nutella to almost hot, but not too hot, or just enough to thin it out, before you slowly add it to the eggs. HA! Piece of cake!
WHOA! Look at who got in on the action! 🙂 She was all, like, gimme some...and I was all, like, no, I’m in the middle of photographing them… and she was like, um okay, I’ll just have to do this mahself! And she did…
If you are expecting a brownie-like texture, this ain’t it. However, the taste and texture are similar to a fudgy brownie, but nowhere near as sweet. I didn’t add a sweetener to these, but you can most definitely dust them with some powdered sugar. That will definitely add a sweeter flavor.
The recipe makes exactly nine bars, and it is hard not to eat them all in one sitting. I should know…
These little Nutella bites of yumminess have become our go-to chocolate snack around here, taking up space underneath that cake dome on a regular basis.
If you happen to have some eggs sitting around and a jar of Nutella, well, go gettem and whip up a batch – you won’t be disappointed. I hope!
