The wind is howling, the dust is blowing, the roofers are pounding nails into the new roof tiles, and the dog is barking non stop! When your day starts out this way, some serious chocolate therapy is required. I have been dreaming about chocolate cake, but could not bring myself to do the math required to scale down a recipe for two servings. These Hazelnut Brownies are ooey, and gooey, and oh so fudgy…exactly what my day needed!

Ooey, gooey, fudgy Hazelnut Brownies are perfect for those chocolate cravings | cookingwithcurls.com

I put my thinking cap on and remembered the half empty jar of Justin’s chocolate hazelnut spread that was getting lonely in the pantry…and went for a full batch! 😉

How to make Hazelnut Brownies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8 x 8 baking pan with parchment paper or foil and spray with cooking spray.

In a small bowl, combine butter and unsweetened chocolate. Heat on HIGH in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir until chocolate is melted. I have a 1000 watt microwave, so you may need to adjust accordingly.

In a large bowl, beat chocolate mixture and sugar together…..

Notes:

  • These Hazelnut Brownies are lactose-free. I used Justin’s because it does not contain milk like Nutella and Nocciolata.
  • This recipe can easily be doubled and baked in a 9 x 13-inch baking pan for 30 to 40 minutes.

The winds have dropped down to a breeze, the roof is finished, and the dog is asleep. Hopefully tomorrow will be a much less chaotic day!!
