Running this blog as a full time business can often paradoxically mean a lot of time away from the kitchen. There’s a lot of behind-the-scenes work that goes into everything. That sometimes means getting relaxed time in the kitchen is like a special treat. Until I make a giant mess and am staring down a huge stack of dirty dishes. But luckily when a recipe turns out the dishes are a small price to pay for a taste of something delectable. There’s a special gratification that comes from a homemade kitchen success and it feels that much better when it’s a recipe you’ve written and created.

Now, Nutella Brownies aren’t all that original. But this recipe is based off my Ultimate Brownie recipe which took SIX+ batches to perfect. I tweaked that recipe slightly by adding a bunch of Nutella, of course, and some other tweaks like a bit of cocoa powder to absorb some of the extra moisture. The result is something magnificent. I hope the photos really capture just how rich, fudgy, and gooey these brownies are. Nutella brownies + cold glass of milk = my idea of perfect. What’s yours?
