Nutella Espresso Brownies

Nutella. Espresso. Brownies! Yaaaaas.

For sure there’s nothing better than chocolate and espresso… unless it’s chocolate and hazelnut. We’re talking flavor triple-threat to send us straight to decadent-fudgey-brownie heaven.

I’ve been sneaking “just half a brownie” bites all day long. Somehow – totally unrelated, for sure – the pan is already mostly empty.

People can be very particular about their brownies. Me, I want a brownie so rich and dense that it could be fudge. (If I wanted cakey, I’d bake a chocolate cake, thanks.) Between the nutella and cocoa powder and dark chocolate chips, this recipe would be fudge if it weren’t for a little flour and baking powder.

But here’s the real question: edges or center?

The right answer is center. Aaaaall the way fudgey center. But if you’re wrong, there’s all-edges brownie pans to help make everything perfect.

Instant espresso powder is one of those essential inessentials in your baking arsenal. Even in small amounts, it amplifies the flavor of chocolate in pretty much everything baked. We’re dumping a full tablespoon in because that’s just how we roll.

Cold milk is a necessity, napkins are optional.
