Nutella and brown butter are two things that can make almost any dessert better.
Brown butter is an easy way to upgrade a cookie or blondie recipe. Cooking the butter on the stove-top until it turns brown gives it a subtle nutty flavor.
This pie adds brown butter to a traditional blondie recipe and then tops the whole thing with dollops of Nutella, which melt in the oven for a perfect finish.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 2/3 cup plus 1/4 cup Nutella, divided
- 12 tbsp butter
- 2 cups packed dark brown sugar
- 4 oz cream cheese
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tsp of vanilla
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 handful semisweet chocolate chips
