Nutella Cheesecake Brownies

Anyone who knows me knows how much I LOVE Nutella!

I seriously could eat it straight out of the jar by the spoonful !Well I came across this recipe from Babble and had to make it!It is very rich but very good!

found recipe on: Babble

For the Brownie Layer:
4 eggs
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter (softened)
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup Nutella
1/3 cup flour

Nutella Cheesecake Layer:
8 ounce cream cheese (softened)
1/2 cup Nutella
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 F.
Cream softened butter and brown sugar together in a large bowl.  Beat in Nutella. Add eggs and mix well.  Add flour and cocoa until mix until well incorporated.
In a separate bowl, beat together all of the Nutella Cheesecake ingredients.
Pour brownie batter into an 8×8 pan and evenly spread.
Next, spoon drops of the nutella cheesecake over the top of the brownie batter.  Smooth the cheesecake carefully to completely cover the brownie layer.  
Bake at 350 F for 50-55 minutes.  
Note** The center of the brownies will be set, but if you poke a toothpick into them, it won’t come out dry.  No worries!  The cheesecake layer needs to cool completely to set up before you cut into it and eat.**You could also make in a 9×13 pan, bake at 350 F for 30-35 minutesRefrigerate any left over brownies!
