I didn’t know what else to call this delicious goodness.
Did you hear me? Delicious goodness!!!
So, like I said, I am obsessed. Because they are so easy. Like wham, bam, one bowl, ten minutes, you have brownies. Now every time I bake something or have some cookies or chocolate in the pantry I think about how I could combine it with easy Nutella brownies. Because there are just so many possibilities.
Think about a cookie dough, pie crust, shortbread, coffee like base, topped with a chewy, fudgy, chocolatey Nutella brownie.
For the Chocolate Chip Espresso Cookie Bases
110g unsalted butter, softened (1/2 cup)
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp instant coffee
1 cup plain flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 180 C and line a 12 hole muffin pan with cupcake liners
Bash up your coffee in a mortar and pestle (or something) so its nice and fine (important! Otherwise you’ll end up with bitter lumps of coffee).
Using an electric mixer, beat the coffee, butter, sugar and vanilla until combined and creamy.
Add the flour, salt, cinnamon and baking powder and mix on a low speed until just combined. Add the chocolate chips and mix until incorporated.
Divide the crumbly dough evenly among the 12 cupcake liners and press down to form a base. Set aside.
For the Easy Nutella Brownies
1 cup Nutella
10 tbsp plain flour
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 180 C and line a 12 hole muffin pan with cupcake liners.
In a medium bowl, mix together the Nutella, eggs, flour and salt until combined.
Scoop a tablespoon of brownie mixture onto each cookie dough base.
Bake for 12 minutes. Enjoy!
