I almost forgot I'd offered to make a dessert to share with my crafting group. Since my blog Travelcraft Journal turned one year old this month, I wanted to bring something to celebrate (like when we used to bring cupcakes for elementary school birthdays).
Fortunately, at the last minute, I rediscovered this little gem I'd pinned at some point last year.
The recipe calls for just three ingredients (four if you add sprinkles or hazelnuts on top): eggs, flour, Nutella. What I had on hand was actually non-Nutella-brand hazelnut spread that we had decided to try awhile back. Its thinner consistency wasn’t great on toast but turned out to be fabulous for mixing into brownie batter.
I had about half a cup of spread left in my jar, so I halved the recipe. I poured the batter into a mini muffin pan, added sprinkles, reduced the temperature a little and checked them after 15 minutes. The result was 18 delicious little brownie bites.
Most of which made it to the crafting group. ;)
