5 Ingredient Nutella Mini Brownie Bites

Nutella is a dangerous thing.  Sure, it looks innocent with its cute little jar and its use of "wholesome" ingredients like skim milk, but let's not kid ourselves - this is pure chocolate-y, sugar-laden, spreadable indulgence.  And it's far too easy to keep a jar in the pantry for use on toast, fruit, pretty much anything you can get your hands on.

And now you can add one more thing that makes Nutella dangerous:  it's the main ingredient in these super-easy-to-make brownie bites.  In fact, aside from Nutella, you only need 3 ingredients, one bowl, and a muffin tin to whip these up for a late night snack.  The last ingredient is chocolate chips (I also used cinnamon and butterscotch chips on mine, but I think the chocolate was my favorite), but even those are optional.

Don't say I didn't warn you.

Mini Nutella Brownie Bites (adapted from Gninethree)

1 cup Nutella
2 eggs
10 Tbsp plain flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup chocolate chips (or whatever kind of chips you like)

Preheat the oven to 350°F.  Spray a muffin tin with non-stick baker's spray (tip:  to avoid getting any greasy spray where you don't want it, set the tin on the open door of your dishwasher when spraying).

In a mixing bowl, mix all the ingredients except the chocolate chips together until smooth.

Divide the batter evenly in either a mini muffin tin (as in pictures) or a regular one.

If using, sprinkle each brownie cup with a few chocolate chips.

Bake for about 7-8 minutes for mini bites, 12 minutes for regular ones.  Underbake slightly (middle will still be a bit wet looking) for a gooey center.  Allow to cool in tin before removing.
