I think I may have just found my favorite fast brownie recipe. It's incredibly simple, and I bet a bunch of you have discovered this long before me, but for those who haven't... you must try it!
I made a half batch in a mini-cupcake tin.
These brownies are actually not overwhelmingly sweet, which I thought was a good thing, since Nutella itself can be tooth-achingly sweet. In brownie form, however, they somehow manage to be the perfect balance of chocolate and hazelnut flavor, now with a wonderful soft texture that's a bit chewy on the edges.
Here's the recipe:
1 cup Nutella
10 tbsp all-purpose flour
1. Mix all three ingredients together until uniformly combined.
2. Pour into your pan of choice, and bake at 350F for about 30 minutes (shorten the time if you're using a muffin/cupcake tin.) As with all brownies, err on the side of underdone! Take them out once the center seems set.
