My kids love making their favorite peanut butter and nutella sandwiches as their after school snack. They even make them for their friends. Nutella is a delicious Italian chocolate spread made with hazelnuts. Add nutella to a chocolate brownie and it has to be good!
So I ask myself ... what's better than having a chocolate and peanut butter craving? Well, I decided to make these chocolate brownies and hold a "bake off" tasting contest with my family, since they are my best critics.
I decided to use two round shaped cake pans to bake the brownies in (don't know why I did round), one with just nutella added, and the other with nutella and peanut butter combined. Some of my family members do not like peanut butter (they are the fussy ones,) And sure enough they were a huge hit! It was 50/50 split vote. I personally loved the brownies with just the nutella. Try them and let us know what you think!
Nutella and Peanut Butter Brownies
Combine browie mix, oil, water and eggs in large bowl. Mix with a large spoon about 50 strokes.
Using two 7" round spring form pans, spray with cooking oil, and lightly dust the pans with flour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour 1/2 the brownie mixture into each pan.
Drop by tablespoon or knife, 4 Tbsp. of Nutella in one pan.
In the second pan, drop 3 Tbsp. of Nutella along with 3 Tbsp. of Peanut Butter.
Using a knife, swirl the nutella in the first pan. Then swirl both nutella and peanut butter in the second pan to create a marbling effect.
Place both cake pans onto a baking sheet. Bake for 35 minutes.
Cool completely. Open the spring of each pan. Cut into pie slices.
