Chocolate Brownies with Nutella Frosting and Strawberries

Chocolate Brownies with Nutella Frosting & Strawberries

What’s better than chocolate, nutella and strawberries? Seriously, I’m wondering myself because this recipe is the bomb dot com!

Chocolate Brownie Ingredients ­

  • 3⁄4 C. flour
  • 2 C. semi­sweet chocolate
  • 2 tbs cocoa powder
  • 4 tbs. butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1⁄2 C. sugar
  • 1⁄2 C. packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. Baking powder
  • 1⁄2 tsp. Salt
  • 3” cookie cutter (you can also use a medium size glass)
  • 1 C. fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 9×13 baking pan

Frosting Ingredients ­

  • 1 C. butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 C. Nutella
  • 4 C. powdered sugar
  • 6 tbs. milk (you may need a little bit or more or a little bit less depending on how thick you like your frosting)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line your 9×13 baking dish with foil and spray with a non­stick spray.
  2. Combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter and chocolate in 15­20 second increments, stirring until completely melted. Let cool 2­3 minutes.
  4. In another bowl, combine the eggs, sugar and vanilla. Add in the melted chocolate mixture and then slowly add in the flour and cocoa mixture and mix well.
  5. Pour batter into your 9×13 baking pan and bake for 20­25 minutes. Insert a toothpick around 25 minutes to check them. If it comes out ‘clean’ they are done.
  6. Let the brownies cool completely. Once they are cool, use the cookie cutter to cut them into 3” circles and set aside.
  7. Frosting Directions
  8. Using a hand mixer beat 2 C. of powdered sugar, 1⁄2 of your butter/margarine and 1⁄2 of your milk and 2 C. of Nutella. Blend well and then slowly add the remaining sugar, milk and butter. Beat until smooth and creamy.
  9. Generously spread the Nutella frosting over the cooled brownies. Top with freshly sliced strawberries.

Makes approximately 12 servings. 1 brownie = 1 serving. If not serving immediately store in an airtight container (minus the fruit and frosting up to 1 week). If frosting and decorating with fruit, serve immediately or store in the fridge.
