Loaded with three doses of chocolate, these soft bars are rich, gooey, and your new favorite brownie recipe.
By Sharon Lachendro
These are the brownies to end all brownies. They’re super fudgy, exactly the way a brownie should be. Fudge brownies are the only way to go. Actually, make that fudge brownies made with chocolate hazelnut spread. The texture of these brownies is just plain amazing. They’re so fudgy they’re almost truffle like. I’m telling you, they’re not like any other brownie you’ve ever had before.
These chocolate hazelnut brownies have a triple dose of chocolate. Not only do these brownies have the chocolate hazelnut spread as a base but they also have cocoa powder and melted chocolate chips. What whaaat. Triple chocolate. Triple threat. Awesome brownies.
