Nutella Brownie Cups

Are there people in the world who don't like Nutella? I know people who don't like chocolate (or one person, specifically... Ingrid, you are my special non-chocolate friend!), but does Nutella fall into that category? I can't imagine anyone not liking Nutella, but then again, I have an over-the-top obsession for it!

I can and will put Nutella on everything and that is why I try to put some time in between jars. I can't be the person who always has Nutella in the house or else I will always use it. These brownies are the perfect example of that. Sure, a brownie on its own is chocolate perfection. Add a spoonful of Nutella to the center of it before baking and it becomes heavenly perfection.

And no worries (or worry away if you are a Nutella lover!), I only have a few tablespoons left in the jar, so with the exception of one more post I have in the works, it will be awhile until Nutella fever hits the blog again. Unless, of course, the recipe Megan teased me with, is completely irresistable! :)


Nutella Brownie Cups

1/2 cup butter
1 oz unsweetened chocolate
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup Nutella

Preheat oven to 350. Grease 8 muffin cups.

Melt butter and chocolate together in double boiler. Remove from heat and whisk in sugar and cocoa powder. Whisk in eggs, vanilla, and salt. Add flour and mix to combine.

Divide batter between 8 mufifn cups. Spoon 1 TBSP Nutella in center of each cup.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in brownie portion comes out mostly clean.

Would you believe that I've never had Nutella? I buy a vanilla & hazelnut spread from World Market that I adore but the chocolate & hazelnut combination just doesn't appeal to me.

Your brownie cups look delicious though!

Wow I have never had nutella. And until I got into the blogging world, I hadn't even heard of it! I definitely need to try it because I love chocolate and hazelnut. Maybe my first nutella experience will be making these brownie cups!

Um - should I tell you that I have 2 jars of Nutella in the house right now? I'm talking the BIG Costco size jars!

David would love those brownies, they are the perfect size too. Thanks!

Does having it my pantry count for something? :)

Those brownies look seriously rich and chocolaty. Makes me which chocolate was my thing!
