Sweet Sunday – Blueberry Nutella Brownie

I have previously talked about my undying love for Nutella. So a recipe like this was long overdue. Better late than never, right.

Also, it’s kind of a celebration present to myself for successfully finishing my placement, which means one step closer to graduation! Party-time!blueberry nutella brownie

We all know (and love) brownies, not only because they so often contain a high amount of chocolate, but also because it is such a versatile recipe. You can basically add in any fruit or nut that you love, and create your very own brownie. Honestly, I hardly ever make them myself, just because I know that I cannot resist eating bite after bite. Oh well, that’s what makes life worth it right.blueberry nutella brownie

Adding Nutella to a brownie only seemed like the most logical choice I could make. I also added more salt than I would usually add to a recipe, but I adore the combination of salt and Nutella. The salt adds more depth and flavour to the delicious chocolatey substance. It’s amazing.blueberry nutella brownie

One warning though! Be sure to cool the melted butter a bit before you add the eggs, otherwise you’ll end up with some kind of chocolate omelette…

Relax and enjoy this wonderfully sticky and crunchy brownie!

    I’m not such a big fan of chocolate myself, but I love Nutella. It must be the hazelnut flavor. Anyway, your brownies look absolutely delicious. And congratulations on your placement! 🙂
