Nutella Peanut Butter Brownies

A couple of weeks ago my darling nice and nephew spent the night at our house, and when they woke up in the morning I asked them what they wanted for breakfast. With all the sarcasm that a 5 1/2 and a 9 year old could muster, they asked for Peanut Butter Nutella pancakes. My nephew was convinced that there was no way that I'd have either of these on hand because I don't have kids therefore why would I possibly have Peanut Butter or Nutella. Ha! Don't ever challenge me about not having ingredients.

Little did he know that I've now always got these on hand because 1) we all love peanut butter (me, the man and the dog), AND 2) ever since we came back from France we've got a rather unhealthy appetitite for crepes filled with Nutella.

So I made their pancakes (which I'll feature on the blog at another date), then later in the day while everyone was out playing in the snow with Uncle M, I made these Nutella and Peanut brownies which were a wonderful surprise and an even bigger hit with the little ones. Little people 1. Auntie Rhonda 1 - cool factor intact phewwwwww!

Rhonda - these looks so fudgey and delicious!! Just what I'm craving today. I've been making lots of brownies in the kitchen lately - it must be something with the cold weather we've been having.
