I have a go-to brownie recipe that I love and never steer away from. It is fudgy, chewy, chocolatey, soft and cooked to perfection. I love putting adaptions on it to change up the flavor, mix-ins or toppings.
I actually created these brownies back in November of last year, but have been waiting for the perfect time to share them with you. Small world, I literally had these ready and scheduled to post, but a couple days before they went live, my cute friends over at Six Sisters’ Stuff posted a nearly identical recipe. We must have the same brownie base we work from and my jaw literally dropped in disbelief. I mean I have had those “great minds think alike moments” quite a few times, but never as spot on. I decided to hold off a couple months before posting mine. It has just been staring at me in my queue waiting to be shared with you. So now, with Valentine’s Day this weekend, I thought it was as good of time as any to share the recipe with you and also give a shout out to the girls over at Six Sisters’ Stuff as well. :) I adore their blog so be sure and check it out for some other fantastic recipes!
These brownies are delicious. They have a slightly crispy top, which adds such an incredible balance to the moist and fudgy and chewy base. The Nutella really adds a tasty new flavor and really knocks it out of the park.
If you are looking for a great way to satisfy your chocolate craving, these brownies are a must-try! Its always good to visit the original basics and this one is perfection!
