5-Ingredient Nutella Brownies

Have you ever wished you could just hold a piece of Nutella in your hands and bite it instead of that awkward licking it off a spoon thing? Well, here’s the answer to those prayers and all you need is a bowl, a spoon and five ingredients. Oh and something to bake the brownies in.

Nutella brownie recipes have been floating around for a while but after a few run ins with recipes that consumed a jar or more of Nutella and had minimal Nutella taste I was very hesitant to try them. One day I succumbed, but not after making some alterations. First of all, I didn’t see the point in additional butter, second of all a little leavening never hurt anything and third of all Nutella is so sweet that some coarse salt is almost a must have. The result is what I had hoped it would be.

The best part? Because they are so gooey they don’t dry out making them a great make ahead dessert for the holiday season!

Three Things Thursday

Hello my friends and welcome back to my corner of the blogosphere! Where have I been you may ask? Well, read on to find out…

Thing One: Happy Colours

For a myriad of reasons we had a joint birthday celebration for our two girls on the labor day weekend. Party planning took a lot of time, but the end result was worth it.  Both the girls had a fantastic time despite it being what seemed like the hottest day of the summer.

Thing Two: This Beauty, That City, So Much Love

My younger sister had once said that happiness is having a large family that loves you very much and lives very far away. This fall my brother got married in Karachi. The wedding brought together the entire Jafri clan, a grand total of 12 people under one roof. Mind you, that’s just my immediate family.

As you can imagine there was a great deal of love, laughter and food and it all ended with us welcoming the beautiful woman above into our family.

Thing Three: Being Mama

Whenever I go through these periods, times where thinking straight seems impossible I have a renewed respect for those dedicated bloggers who have small children and yet somehow manage to do it all. I shouldn’t really complain though because if there are any two faces that I am okay with taking up all my time then it is these two.

The good news is now I am back and should be back to posting a lot more regularly.
