Nutella Berry Brownie Bites
Nutella Berry Brownie Bites -- Don't you just want to say that 5 times fast. Of course you do. Now I really meant to post this recipe on February 5th (World Nutella Day). But time got away from me and I got sick. But I do think that there should be a Nutella day every week. And what could be an easier or better treat for all your little Valentines. This recipe is SIMPLE. And I admit a version of it is floating all over the web. However, I believe the original recipe deservest a little fuity twist. I added some triple berry jam to my brownie batter and I got a little hint of berries in my chocolate.
I love fruit and chocolate together. I especially love Nutella and fruit together. I added berry jam but next time, maybe even today, I am going to add lemon curd. I encourage you to add a little fuity tablespoon of your favorite jam. Change it up.
1/2 cup Nutella
5 tbsp flour
1 TB of rasberry or triple berry jam
