I haven’t shared a recipe in so long, okay maybe it has really only been two weeks, but cooking truly is one of my first loves, so I thought I would share something really simple with you today.. how about something with Nutella? Brownies with Nutella? A creamy Nutella frosting recipe with brownies… yeah, it sounds good to me too?
Okay, ya know I have to clarify first that I didn’t just jump on the Nutella train(if you are on Pinterest- come follow me there too, you’ve seen how many Nutella recipes there are nowadays)… I have been on it for years. (I guess my pant size would prove it, which is why I am back on the third day shred with Gillian…). But ya know, I still need treats now and then, and the other day when I wanted some brownies I though it would be fun to whip up this Nutella frosting recipe. (recipe for the fudge brownies here).
In about 2 minutes flat, I had a nice fluffy frosting, it was so easy! But, if you are brave, and your pockets are lined with cash (cuz holy cow Nutella is expensive…) will say this, I think straight Nutella would have been really good too!
Nutella Frosting Recipe:
1/2 cup butter (softened)
1 cup Nutella
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
one shake salt
splash of milk (if needed)
Beat the Nutella and butter together until smooth. Add the sprinkle of salt and the first 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, beat until combined. Continue to add the powdered sugar a 1/2 cup at a time, beating between additions, until creamy and smooth. Add a small splash of milk if necessary.
When your homemade brownies are cooled, spread the frosting evenly… and enjoy (Oh and please give this brownie recipe a try, it is necessary I think it take 2 minutes more than a bagged mix… and is SO worth it! This is coming form a girl who has preferred brownie mixes her whole life…)
What good recipes do you have that use Nutella, I hope you will share if you have a link…
