For anyone who seriously craves a chocolate fix, this recipe is for you! These Double Choc Nutella Brownies could not be filled with any more chocolatey goodness. They’re rich, sweet, decadent and most importantly, good for the body! By adding a tiny bit of hazelnut butter combined with cacao and organic dark chocolate chips – it is a great alternative to Nutella (which was my obsession – check out my About Me to find out more).
For the true chocolate lovers, add a little melted cacao butter for an even more rich experience. And if you want an indication of their deliciousness, I made these 3 times before I had time to take proper images of them since they would disappear within a few hours! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on this one xx
