Notes

RECIPE NOTES & TIPS
Tips for making gooey brownies:
  • Nutella is the key to making these brownies incredibly fudgy and gooey… and just wait til the next day (they’re even more DELICIOUS!)
  • adding the extra egg yolk gives the brownies a thick dense texture
  • cooking the brownies until the top is flakey and the base is still moist and fudgy is key! Don’t overcook the brownies! Test them by inserting a skewer into the middle, it should come out with a thick smear of brownie on it (but not runny).
Storing - Brownies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days.
Freezing - Freeze brownies in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Allow to come to room temperature before serving.
Serving - You can serve brownies on their own or with berries, whipped cream, custard, ice-cream, grated chocolate or berry coulis.
