Cocoa Nutella Brownies

Cocoa Nutella BrownieThis is a great cocoa Nutella brownie recipe because you can do so many things with it. Add nuts. Add chocolate chips. Add dried fruit. Add a combination of those items. Leave them as-is & appreciate the chocolaty goodness.

We did something different this time with the ingredients. In the stand mixer – and as opposed to starting with the dry – we started with the wet and proceeded to whip the butter, sugar, vanilla & eggs until light & fluffy. It certainly started to form soft peaks as it would with a butter cream icing. In addition to having the baking powder & soda to make them a bit lighter in texture, the whipped butter & eggs did likewise and have to say, it’s the same great taste but a lovely lightness to them. If you have a stand mixer, feel free to try this but if doing by hand, they come out great the traditional way too.

You can see in the pan photo below that the batter looks more like icing than it would brownie batter but it cooks & finishes just as it should. If you want to try a lighter, fluffier version of brownies, whip the butter, sugar, eggs & vanilla before adding the baking powder, baking soda, cocoa & flour.

Taking a step further outside the realm of normal, try using chopped real bacon bits instead of chocolate chips, chopped nuts or minced dried fruit.

And as with all really good things, these brownies are more fudgy the next day.
