Sunday, Feb. 5th, is World Nutella Day. Nutella is finally getting popular and I am so happy about it! If you haven’t tried it you should; it is gooey and chocolatey and tasty on everything from grapes to pretzels to bananas and crepes. (If you like crepes which I don’t… but I wish I did. There is a lot of angst there. Don’t ask.)
Back to Nutella. It is delicious. I first ate it in Italy and was hooked. Then add something as delicious as brownies made with Nutella and make simple, easy 4 (ok, I make it 5) ingredient brownie bites and I am completely gonna try them. And they are delicious!
Nutella Brownie Bites
Adapted from Blissfully Delicious
1/2 cup Nutella
1 large egg
1 tsp cocoa powder
5 tbsp flour
1 handful chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a mini muffin pan (I haven’t tried just Pam-ing the heck out of the pan but that would probably work too. Just don’t blame me if your muffins stick. I haven’t tried it.)
Whisk the Nutella and egg together until creamy (yes it looks like it is just gonna gloup up in the whisk… but that won’t happen. Just keep whisking!)
Add in the cocoa powder and the flour. Blend well. Then fold in a handful of chocolate chips, just a handful; we want to gild the lily not kill it haha.
Spoon the batter into the muffin tins, 3/4 of the way full and bake 11 - 12 minutes.
Don’t over-bake. The toothpick will have wet, gooey crumbs and you might hit a chocolate chip so that really doesn’t work so great. Just don’t over-bake. (I did the first time I made them… still tasty but not… not the same.)
Allow to cool a little and then devour!
