That’s right – only 2 ingredients in these Nutella brownies

Is there anything Nutella can’t do? It’s already the most amazing substance known to humanity, and now you tell me that I can mix Nutella with just one ingredient to make a batch of fudgy, chewy brownies?

I know – if I hadn’t tried it myself, I wouldn’t believe me either. But here’s exactly how you, too, can make these magical two-ingredient brownies.

These brownies are made with just a cup of Nutella and 4 large eggs. That’s it. They’re gluten-free, incredibly easy and absolutely perfect for a crowd. They have a fudgy, silky texture, a crispy wafer top and deep chocolate flavor that defies all logic.

How does this work? I have no idea. It’s magic.

I do know that the key to success with these brownies is whisking the eggs until they’re light lemon-colored, frothy and tripled in bulk. This is what leavens your brownies and keeps you from making an eggy, chocolate-flavored mess. Whisk those eggs like you mean it! Keep whisking! Use a stand mixer or a hand mixer! Trust!

I like making these for an easy weeknight dessert, but I’m also keeping this recipe in my back pocket for the next time I want a flourless chocolate cake. Just imagine it sprinkled with powdered sugar, topped with fresh fruit and drizzled with chocolate sauce. That’s a serious dinner-party win right there.
