Brownies with Nutella...mmmmmm! However I just realized my jar of Nutella is almost gone and my daughter was at my house last week. You would think after they move out and get a job of their own they could buy their own jar wouldn't you?

Lizzy said...

Chocolate Perfection!

Candace said...

Brownies alone are soooooo good and then you added that beautiful frosting that is dripping off the brownie and there's Nutella as one of the ingredients and coffee...either of which would take this brownie to a new level of deliciousness all on its own. I can only imagine how amazing these must taste. Gorgeous brownies!

Sandra said...

My willpower would dissolve around these.
