About

I've never made anything with Nutella. But these brownies looked so good I couldn't wait to crack a jar open and make them! The smell of baking brownies filled the house. I added about a third of a cup of Nutella to the batter and a handful of milk chocolate chip as suggested by Donna Diegel from the Providence Food Examiner where this recipe came from . The rest of the Nutella went on top as a frosting. Pure chocolate heaven I tell ya!!
