Allie's Sinful But Outrageously Delicious Chocolate Nutella Brownie Recipe

chocolate Nutella brownies

Some time ago we ran a Facebook competition and offered my infamous brownies as a prize. For those of you who requested the recipe, here it is.

Remember... be brave during cooking time (dry, hard brownies aren't good), eat them warm from the oven with a fresh coffee, and above all ENJOY!

Ingredients:

200g  Milk chocolate (organic), broken up into chunks

100g  Plain chocolate (organic), broken up into chunks

3/4 tub  Nutella

250g  Butter, cubed

5 Medium  Eggs, beaten

350g  Golden caster sugar

200g  Plain flour

1 dash  Vanilla essence

100g  Milk chocolate chips

50g  Hazelnuts, chopped

1 small bag  Whole hazelnuts

1. Preheat oven to 180°C/gas 4. Melt the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Cool.

6. Bake for 25–30 minutes. The outsides will look crackled and the inside will feel firm but will still be gooey. Be brave if they look on the point of collapse - they need to be soft and fudgy on the inside!

7. Allow to cool in the tin for at least 20 minutes.

4. Eat and enjoy!!

To make them even naughtier, top with milk chocolate icing, but you may need a year's worth of daily gym sessions to burn the calories off!
