Nutella Fudge Brownies | www.tasteandtellblog.com

We are taking a short break from Red Velvet Week – but don’t worry – I still have one more red velvet recipe for you tomorrow!!

Have you ever had one of those “duh” moments while cooking?  Well, mine seem to be coming on more and more lately.  And this recipe was no exception.  I went to make these brownies, super excited because I love Nutella.  I don’t normally even keep it on hand, because I know I can’t stop myself from going to the jar and eating it by the spoonful.  Well, I prepared my muffin tin.  I mixed the ingredients.  I went to fill the paper liners.  And I was only able to fill 7 of them – not even 3/4 of the way full like the recipe says to – more like half full.  I was wondering why the recipe was so off.  I put them in the oven, and they weren’t done in the specified time.  Which is strange, because my oven cooks a little hot, so things are usually done before the time on a recipe.  I cooked them a few minutes more, until they were done.

I was seriously confused at why I only got 7 brownies.  So I did what I should have done earlier – I went to the internet.  These brownies are quite popular, so I was able to find several blogs that had made these.  And as I read through them, seeing if anyone else had the same problem – I found that no one else had complained of the same issues.  And that’s when I noticed it:  Line a 12-cup mini muffin pan with paper or foil liners.  Somehow, I had completely missed that one little word:  mini.  And all I could do was laugh at myself!!

Regardless, these were absolutely perfect.  I love that they only have 4 ingredients. I love that they don’t make a million and a half – they are a perfect small batch.  I love that they are fudgy and Nutella-y.  And even though I didn’t follow the recipe exactly, they still turned out!!

    OMG! These look amazing! I have two huge Costco sized jars of Nutella, and you know how much I love EASY recipes! Might have to try these this weekend, thanks!

    I gotta say that I LOVE the idea of 4 ingredient cooking. These look delicious and I happen to have all the ingredients on hand.

    Cute story about using the wrong pan size. I do similar things myself, especially when the kids are around. They distract me!

    Oh, Nutella, my favorite sinful spread. These brownies, I bet, are just over the moon delicious. Thanks for sharing, Deborah. Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. Joanne says:

    I understand. I left 3/4 cup water out of a chocolate cupcake recipe last week. Stuff happens.

    I have a serious nutella addiction as well. These look amazing!

    That spread is so addictive and those brownies must be sooooo good!

    I bought some Nutella today, only because I couldn't find hazelnuts to make my own. I've had a recipe for the spread I've been dying to make. Now I HAVE to find some hazelnuts to make these…of course, I do have walnuts.

  8. Liz says:

    Nutella is one of the basic food groups, I'm pretty sure 🙂 Chocolate is too!

    I can't believe I've never stumbled on such a simple yet delicious recipe! This sounds so yummy (especially with a big glass of milk). And I loved hearing about your muffin tin mystery. Thank you for sharing with me. I hope you have a great weekend. I'm ready for some warmth!

  12. hungryhealthyhilary.com says:

    And Did you make them because it was World Nutella Day this weekend? I made 2 Nutella recipes to celebrate!

  13. grace says:

    i personally enjoy a larger serving (especially if nutella is involved), so the mini muffin pan is useless to me anyway. 🙂

    I LOVED these when I made them. They made perfect little treats to put in the Christmas baskets and I always have the ingredients on hand to make them when company comes over.
