Ok, once you have stopped drooling over the title of this post, take a look at the recipe below!
I found the original over here.
- 1 large egg
- 3/4 cup Nutella – I used the Pick n Pay Hazelnut Chocolate Spread (Its the closest one to Nutella I have ever tasted and its about a third of the price)
- 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed (I used light brown sugar)
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract (I used my home made extract)
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- pinch salt, optional and to taste
- 170 grams dark chocolate, chopped (I used about half a box of dark chocolate chips)
- Using a hand beater (or stand mixer) combine the egg, Nutella, peanut butter, brown sugar, vanilla and beat to cream ingredients for about 5 minutes.
- Add the flour, baking soda and salt.
- Mix until combined.
- Add the chocolate chips and using a wooden spoon mic until just combined.
- Scoop out batter roughly the diameter of a R5 coin and using your hands squeeze into balls. They will be very oily!
- Place on a sprayed baking tray. About 5cm apart or about 6/8 balls per tray.
- Place your trays in the fridge for no less than 2 hours.
- Once chilled, set you oven to 180°C and bake each tray for 10 minutes.
Enjoy with a cup of coffee or a glass of cold milk!
I was browsing around on Pinterest and came across a recipe for Nutella brownies, I couldnt resist and decided to make them tonight…
- 1 cup Nutella
- 2 eggs
- 10 tablespoons flour
- Set oven to 180ºC
- Mix all ingredients in a bowl
- Place mini cupcake cups on a baking sheet
- Fill cups with half a teaspoon of batter each
- Do not over fill, the brownies do rise up
- Bake for ±10 minutes
Makes about 50 mini bites, next time I will try them in bigger cups
My favourite part of Purim is eating hamantaschen with mon (poppy seeds) but since not everyone likes poppy seeds I decided to try my hand at making a Nutella hamantaschen.
- 3 cups flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ cup sugar
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 3 eggs
- 3/4 cup butter or margerine
- Your choice of filling (you can use a poppy seed mixture, chocolate spread, jam or nuts)
- Sift together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
- Mix in eggs and butter (I melted the butter slightly in the microwave).
- Mix until a dough forms.
- Roll out the dough and cut out large rounds.
- Transfer the rounds to a greased baking tray and place a teaspoon of your filling in the middle.
- Fold your circle on three ‘sides’ and pinch together to create a triangular parcel, leaving the middle open so you can see the filling.
- Bake for 15 – 20min or until golden brown in a 180°C oven.
