Recipe: Amazing 2-ingredient Nutella brownies

2_ingredient_Nutella_browniesYes, you read that right. Just two ingredients – Nutella and eggs – combine together to create this beautifully complex brownie. Crisp on top, moist on the bottom, its guaranteed to take you straight to chocolate heaven! If this isn’t alchemy, I don’t know what is!

Here’s what you need:

240 grams Nutella
4 eggs

And here’s what you do:

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 175 C.
  1. Grease and line a baking tin (4×4 or 8×8 work equally well)
  1. Crack your eggs into the bowl of your stand mixer or in a big bowl. With the whisk attachment, whip on highest speed for about 6-8 minutes. Your eggs should triple in quantity and take on a light yellow color. This is the key to this dish – if it isn’t whisked enough, you’ll end up with an eggy chocolate flavored mess.
  1. While your eggs are beating, measure out the Nutella, put it in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for a total of 1 minute, stopping every 15 seconds to give it a good stir. You want your Nutella to be creamy and flowy.
  1. Once your eggs are done, start pouring in the Nutella 1-2 teaspoons at a time and keep beating at a low speed. (With a hand-mixer, add a little Nutella at a time and mix in between.)
  1. Once all your Nutella has been added and is thoroughly combined with the eggs, give it a stir with a rubber spatula, paying attention to the sides and bottom where the whisk may have missed.
  1. Pour into the prepared baking tin and bake for 25-30 minutes. The brownies are done when they start to pull away from the sides of the tin and a skewer comes out clean.
  1. Pull out of the oven and wait for the cake to cool completely before getting it out of the pan or cutting it, or they’ll fall apart easily.
  1. Eat! For a more decadent experience, sprinkle with powdered sugar, top with fresh fruit, and drizzle with chocolate sauce.

Note: You can keep the brownies in an air tight container for up to a week – either outside or in the fridge depending on the weather.
