Brownies are one dessert that don’t need an introduction! It’s like someone took chocolate cake and made it fudgy, chewy and gooey on the inside. My family loves brownies enough to go any lengths to make them. But if we can make them with just 4 ingredients, in half the effort, we won’t complain:-)
This recipe is so simple to make and it needs only 4 ingredients– All-purpose flour, Nutella (Hazelnut Spread), eggs and chocolate chips. If you don’t care for gooey brownies, you can skip the chocolate chips and make this recipe with just 3-ingredients, but we like the extra gooeyness that the chips provide. Sometimes, we like to add a 5th ingredient to this recipe- chopped walnuts, and that takes it to another level of yumminess! But that’s purely optional. The credit for this recipe goes to my kids. They tweaked and tested this recipe a few times, trying out different combinations of flour and Nutella, and even adding cocoa powder to see if the results were tastier. Finally, we have a recipe that we all love in our house. My kids make a coffee-mug version of this recipe too- Brownies in a Mug– perfect for single servings.
This is how you make them:

Pour batter in a parchment lined pan and bake for about 16-18 minutes. Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick. If it comes out clean, you're done! Enjoy the brownies with your favorite accompaniments. Some of our favorites are vanilla ice-cream and caramel sauce.
