nutella chocolate chunk bars

These were special order for my daughter.  I try to limit the sweets she consumes (believe it or not) but these were a MUST make for us.  They are absolutely incredible.

I originally baked these bars with PEANUT BUTTER (CHOCOLATE CHUNK BARS) and they were hoovered by everyone.  I figured I had to sub in the Nutella for the PB (and minimize the sugar since the Nutella is already sweetened) for a still RICH chocolate lovers dessert.  You will not regret trying this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 5 tbs coconut oil, melted & cooled (+more)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 1 egg + 1 yolk, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup flour (or gluten free flour)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1.5 cups chocolate chips (divided)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 F.  Line an 8×8″ brownie pan with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine the oil and sugar.  Next, stir in the Nutella, eggs and vanilla.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.  Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet until just combined.  Lastly, fold in 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips.

Transfer this mixture to your prepared brownie pan and press down evenly.

Bake for 30-35 minutes.  Allow the bar to cool for atleast 1 hour.

In a small pot, melt 1 tsp coconut oil and the remaining 1 cup chocolate chips, on low heat, stirring constantly until smooth.  Pour and spread the mixture on top of the brownie evenly.  Refrigerate and allow to set for at least 1 hour.

Remove from pan and slice into small bars.  Store leftovers in an airtight container.
