Looking for a new kind of brownie? These crunchy Nutella brownies are super yummy and extra crunchy! A rich, fudgy brownie, topped with chocolate, Nutella, and rice cereal to give it a delicious crunch. Treat yourself...you deserve it!
Nutella Crunch Layer
- 1 cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
- 1 stick unsalted butter, cut into pieces
- 1-3/4 cups sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup flour
- 1-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup Nutella
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1-1/2 cups rice cereal
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13 pan with lightly greased foil.
In a large glass bowl, microwave the chocolate chips and butter at 30 second intervals until melted. Stir until smooth.
Add the sugar, eggs, vanilla, and flour. Add in each ingredient one at a time, stirring until combined before adding the next ingredient.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes, or until the edges are completely set. Do not overbake (the middle will not be completely set)!
After you take the brownies out of the oven, while they are cooling in their pan, make the frosting. In a medium-sized glass bowl, microwave the chocolate chips, Nutella, and butter for 30 second intervals, until melted. Stir until smooth. Let cool for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the rice cereal.
Immediately spread the frosting over the brownies.
Cool brownies completely before enjoying (you can put them in the refrigerator to speed this up if you can't wait to eat them!).
Makes 16 large brownies.
