Nutella Brownies Hearts

I bought a small heart cookie cutter - of course, had to use it right away!! :)

Baked some brownies and, for a nice change, used some Nutella in the mix! Problem was, thought I had enough... but didn't... so decided to use some dulce de leche that I had.  The brownies were moist and tasty. Mmmmm!


Aren't they cute??!!

Nutella Brownies
from Ricardo

1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 cup Nutella (only had 1/2 cup left so used 1/2 cup plus 1/2 dulce de leche!)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled

Preheat oven to 325ºF and line a square baking pan with a sheet of parchment paper.

In a small bowl, mix flour and salt.

In a big bowl, mix eggs, Nutella, brown sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer until the mix is smooth, about 2 minutes. Add the dry ingredients and butter.

Spread into baking pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes.

Let cool in pan for about 2 hours. Cut into squares.

Makes 16 squares (or 8 hearts with some leftovers!).

Oh my these are darling! If they taste 1/2 as good as they look than I must have one! And I'm sure they do!

For the first time in my life, I followed this recipe and made brownies from scratch! Not only were they so easy to make, but absolutely DELICIOUS and moist! Forgot the boxed Ghirardelli brownie mix. This was a hit with my family! Looks like I have a brownie recipe for life. Thank you:)
