Nutella Cream Cheese Brownies.


Nutella Cream Cheese Brownies.  Need I say more?

I owe this recipe to the Cookin Canuck.  She recently posted these as part of a virtual baby shower for another fellow food blogger.  I heard Nutella and brownies and I was sold.

If you haven't taken part in the Nutella craze, it's best time you crawl out from under that rock and get your butt to the grocery store.  Behind ketchup, it is my favorite condiment.

Since this is a long weekend with Labor Day, I figured I'd bake us a treat to munch on throughout the endless football games (Go Hawkeyes!) we'll be watching and extra time on our hands.  Don't think I eat desserts all day, as I don't, I even froze half the batch.  It makes me feel a lot better in the end.

Nutella Cream Cheese Brownies
1 1/2 c. flour (I used Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free flour mix)
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
3/4 c. butter, softened
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
2 t. vanilla
3/4 c. white or chocolate chips
4 oz. cream cheese
3/4 c. Nutella
1 egg yolk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Wisk together flour, baking powder and salt.  In another bowl wisk together butter, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla.  Stir in flour mixture until just combined.  Add in white or chocolate chips, stir.

In another bowl stir together cream cheese, Nutella and egg yolk.  Put blondie mixture into 8x8 sprayed baking pan.  Drop Nutella mixture by tablespoonfuls over blondie mixture.  Using a butter knife, swirl in Nutella mixture.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the blondie section comes out clean.  Cool, cut into squares.

So, do you want to make these for your Labor Day gathering this weekend?  I vote yes!

Tonight, my only goal is to get the kiddos in bed early so I can relax.  They have been running me rampid today!  I just finished a good book, Half Broke Horses, and now am on to Girls in White Dresses.  Anyone out these read either of these???

Have a great weekend!
