Nutella and Marshmallow Brownie Bites


It's that time of the year folks, that time of the year! Every year, I cave and get a jar of Nutella from the grocery store. I only indulge rarely, mostly due to the fact that the jars rarely make it more than a couple days in my pantry. Because, really, is there anything better than a little spoonful of Nutella (or two, or three?)? Well, these little treats might be the next best thing. I had as a mission to put this jar of gooey chocolate hazelnut goodness to good use before it was gone in smoke. So here you are, Nutella bites! These are incredibly, incredibly easy to make - they literally take minutes- and only require 4 ingredients. The marshmallow is optional of course but it makes for a fun touch - perfect for kids and an added touch of gooeyness in the center of each Nutella brownie bite.

I also wanted to announce the winner of the ThinkFood cookbook contest! The free copy of this brain-healthy cookbook goes to Megan at Foodalution. Congratulations!

Nutella and Marshmallow Brownie Bites

Makes 12 mini brownies
Adapted from Savory Sweet Life

1/2 cup Nutella spread
1 large egg
5 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
12 mini marshmallows

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12-cup mini muffin pan with paper liners. Put the Nutella and egg in a medium bowl and whisk until smooth and well blended. Add the flour and whisk until blended. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tins (about 3/4 full). Place a marshmallow in the center of each brownie and gently press down with your finger so you can only see the tip of each marshmallow.

Bake until a toothpick inserted in the brownie part of each bite comes out with wet, gooey crumbs, 11 to 12 minutes. Set on a rack to cool completely. Serve immediately or cover and store at room temperature for up to 3 days.

I'm bookmarking this. As soon as I get a jar, I'm making this! I have to wait a little while though, I had a Nutella fix about a week ago(went through the jar in two days, with a little help from my son)
Thanks for sharing!

Nutella brownie bites looks great, specially one in red cup! I have not cooked much with Nutella before, so this gives me an incentive to do it.

Maria said...

These look dangerously good!

kujoton said...

These are incredible! I went to visit my brother today and made them for him and his lady- i cut little holes in the center to fill with more nutella and then topped them with the marshmallows and popped them in the oven for another couple minutes for super melty nutella and perfectly toasted marshmallows. i'm making another batch as we speak! thank you so much.
