Brownie That’s Not A Brownie

I’m going to call it a brownie anyway ‘coz it looks like one, but it’s definitely not your normal and usual brownie. LOL!

Whatever you wish to call it, this is a spectacular recipe. Fudgy, lush, chocolatey, and delicious. Now, the ingredients I used are really interesting – sunflower butter which made the brownie fudgy (just perfect for this recipe), and my Homemade Nutella that brings this whole thing home in a lush moment.

Don’t panic when you don’t have the ingredients available to you. Watch the vid as I’ve mentioned a few tips there that are really helpful.

About The Nutella

Frosting the brownie with the Nutella is what takes it home. What’s so great about this Nutella, you ask? It’s homemade and the best part is you can eat this out of the jar, knowing your organs know precisely what to do with the nourishment.
