Let's face it. I love nutella. You love nutella. I mean you may come across the occasional person who doesn't care for it but not often. People love nutella and what's not to love with that creamy chocolately smoothness and hint of hazelnut?

I'll be honest that, in my opinion, there aren't a lot of recipes that use nutella that taste better than just a plain ol' spoonful of the stuff. The flavor is just easily overwhelmed I think so while I will eagerly try any recipe that calls for it as an ingredient (any excuse to have a jar in the house) there aren't many that I want to make more than once. The ooey gooey nutella cake has been the lone star on my baking list until now. These chewy nutella brownies were so deliciously good that they've earned a seat right next to it though and I really would be hard pressed to choose one over the other.


Rich and decadent this brownies were a treat if a little more involved than some other recipes.

What you'll need:
2 sticks of butter
2 1/4 cups sugar
1 regular (small) jar of nutella
4 large eggs
1 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup dark cocoa powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 TBS vanilla 
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
10 oz package mini chocolate chips

What you'll do:
Melt butter in a medium saucepan. 
Add sugar and continue to cook for one to two minutes (do not allow to boil)
Remove from heat and stir in nutella.
Pour mixture into a large bowl and add eggs, cocoa powders, salt, baking powder, and vanilla, stirring until combined.
Stir in flour half a cup at a time until completely mixed in.
Stir in chocolate chips.
The batter will be very thick. 
Pour it into a greased 9x13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean. The center will look slightly moist but the edges should be set. 

These are some serious brownies, people. And they are just as good the next day...if you manage to have any left over. Also, they would be like next level if combined with a scoop of ice cream.
