Someone get this jar of Nutella out of my house! It's doing evil things to me. I'm aware of that jar at all times when I'm home. It seduces me, gives me compliments and lures me to it. Then afterwards, I feel guilty and remorseful. No, we're not talking about dating, we're talking about the most amazing chocolate hazelnut spread on earth. A couple of weeks ago I bought my very first jar of Nutella. The jar's empty now.
Did you know that when paired with Milton's multi-grain crackers, Nutella tastes like an E.L. Fudge cookie?!? I kid you not.
So when I needed a desert/thank you for letting us stay overnight gift for this weekend, I turned to Nutella. I also have wanted to make a blondie for a long time. Traditionally, blondies are essentially the same recipe as their cousin the brownie, but blondies use butterscotch instead of chocolate. So, how about we swap out butterscotch, and add Nutella? Sound good? Okay, done.
These blondies turned out amazing. I decided to brown the butter first before putting adding into the rest of the ingredients. Browned butter is also amazing, it transforms ordinary melted butter into a rich nutty, delicious butter. This nutty flavor and aroma compliments the blondie base and the Nutella swirls. Go get a jar of Nutella and make these!
