If you're like most, I've probably got you hooked with the title alone. Nutella seems to be all the rage these days and is absolutely exquisite in baked goods.
A few nights ago, a couple of friends and I decided to go for a nice dinner date at a restaurant in a little ghost town on a mountain near us. I thought it would be fun to make dessert for us and enjoy it somewhere after our dinner. We ended up wandering the little town at night carrying a plate of these brownies. After walking up and down hills and steps in my high heels, we settled on a picnic table. We ate at least two brownies each as we watched a group of people pass by on what appeared to be a ghost tour and laughed far too much.
So make these. Go to dinner. Skip dessert. Eat these instead. You won't regret a thing.
