Nutella & Jersey Caramel Brownies

Things just got completely and utterly delicious with these chocoholic Nutella & Jersey Caramel Brownies!!! Best. Recipe. EVER!!!

I would never swear on Bake Play Smile – it’s far too G-rated for that! BUT if you can imagine a swear jar, then also imagine me filling it up with coins as I describe how amazing these Nutella & Jersey Caramel Brownies are. It’s the best way I can think to explain how good they are.

Nutella and Jersey Caramel Brownies

See, a while ago, I made Nutella Brownies and thought they were the best things ever. They were rich, fudgy and way too addictive (just ask the girl who ate 4 pieces in one sitting – and no, they weren’t small pieces). And so ever since then, I’ve made HEAPS of batches of the Nutella Brownies. You could say that they’ve sort of become my go-to brownie recipe.

But being typical Lucy, I just couldn’t leave the recipe alone. I had to try and make it even better. And what better way to improve on an already awesome brownie, than to add jersey caramels!? Yep, that’s right… chewy, delicious jersey caramels. OMG! Nutella & Jersey Caramel Brownies!! BEST. BEST. IDEA!!

The idea for this new little experiment came about when one of my best friends asked me to make a brownie for her daughter’s first birthday (on a side note – her daughter is the cutest, teensiest, most gorgeous thing ever!), and I decided to have a little play around with my Nutella Brownie recipe.

I kept the basic Nutella Brownie recipe the same, but added in a 200g bag of Jersey Caramels chopped in half…. because that’s how things roll in my sugar-filled house. I baked these late at night (as you do) and popped them in the fridge overnight. By the time I cut them in the morning, the jersey caramels were back to their chewy/firm delicious self and were really easy to slice. I must say that the caramel really does take these brownies to a whole new level!

The only downside was that I could only eat a couple of tiny, little edge pieces before I had to hand the container over… yep, as bad luck would have it – I missed the first birthday party because I was in QLD for the ProBlogger conference. Cue sad face here. But on the flipside, I do now have the perfect excuse to make another batch.
