Nutella Brownies

These Nutella Brownies from Buns in My Oven caught my eye a while ago, so I decided to make them one night when we were having guests over for dinner.  We had Raspberry White Chocolate Ice Cream with these.  They are a variation of the popular "Bombshell Brownies" I first saw on Allrecipes.  They are thick, chewy, moist & dense.  Very delicious, and great for serving a group.

1 cup (2 sticks) butter
2 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup Nutella
4 large eggs
1 1/4 cups cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup chocolate chips

1.  Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9x13 baking dish.  In small saucepan over low heat, melt butter completely. Stir in sugar and continue cooking for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. Do not allow sugar mixture to boil.  Remove from the heat and stir in the Nutella until well combined.

2.  Pour butter mixture into a large bowl or stand mixer, beat in cocoa powder, eggs, salt, baking powder, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.  Stir in the flour and chocolate chips until just combined.

3.  Spread into prepared pan (batter will be very thick and sticky) and bake for about 30-35 minutes, until a tester comes out mostly clean. The edges should be set and the center should still look slightly moist, but not uncooked. Cool on a wire rack.

That's great Katie- glad you liked them! They make a ton too; I bet one could cut the recipe in half. (maybe I will next time)
