Mm mm, the deliciousness of Nutella paired with a a decadent brownie recipe.
So, so good.
I was actually surprised that I hadn't shared this recipe before. But better late than never, eh?

My girls were surprised, and a little grossed out, at the addition of applesauce to a brownie recipe but you don't taste it and it keeps the brownie incredibly moist. I have followed the original recipe exactly but the last time I made them I changed the way I did the cream cheese Nutella topping and liked it much better all mixed together.

What you'll need:
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup + 3 TBS unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup + 2 TBS water
1/4 cup applesauce 
1/2 cup of oil
1 8oz cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla
6 TBS of Nutella

What you'll do:
Mix together the first five dry ingredients. 
Add in the water, applesauce, and oil stirring until blended.
Pour into a greased 9x13 pan.
Mix together remaining ingredients until smooth.
Drop by spoonfuls onto the brownie batter and then swirl it evenly across.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
