Nutella Brownies

I love Nutella, as you probably know by now!!  I found this recipe about 3 days ago and made these in my first moment of spare time. I literally couldn't wait for them to come out of the oven and cool!  They are so chewy and chocolaty and perfect!  There is only a slight flavor of nutella, which was kind of disappointing but the overall brownie was crazy good!!  I also liked the recipe because it made a large pan of brownies and they are over an inch thick.  I feel like most recipes are for small square pans and sometimes don't puff up very much, but not these.  Its a lot of batter and they grow a ton in the oven!  The other thing that I love about this recipe is you melt the butter in a sauce pan, so it doesn't have to be room temperature.  That bugs me when you have to wait an hour for the butter to come to room temperature before you can start baking.   So this is another plus for this recipe for me.  Overall, I think you should definitely make these if your a Nutella nut like me!
