Brownie Points with Dad

This Sunday is Father’s Day. A big day around Dumb White Husband. Hello, surrounded by all these husbands. Yup, definitely a big day. And why not celebrate the big day with food? Oh yea, every man likes food. After all don’t they say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach?? But today I’m not just talking food… I’m talking chocolate. Now just hold on a second before you go and tell me chocolate is a woman thing. This is not just chocolate… oh no, this is Brownies. I’ve got your attention now don’t I?

If you are reading this, and I hope that you are, you may be asking yourself why brownies? And I think that is a perfectly honest question. Well allow me to answer that question. First I chose brownies because my husband absolutely refuses to tell me what he wants for Father’s Day. Wait, back up, it’s not that he refuses to tell me, it’s that he tells me he has no idea. Now I know this would be different if I were asking him what power tool, computer part, or video game he wanted, but I digress. So he can’t decide what he wants, but the other reason I chose brownies is because this is supposed to be the summer of kids cooking.

And boy did I find the perfect recipe for my kids. Now before I continue I think it is fair to warn you that I love Nutella, and anything with Nutella is worth trying in my book. So, naturally this recipe contains Nutella, chocolate of the Gods.

Now this recipe is not my original recipe, but I have been seeing variations of it floating around Pinterest forever and am just now deciding to give it a try. I have no idea where this recipe originated, but it's out there. For this Father’s Day dish my 6 and 9 year olds will be the chefs.

Nutella Brownies with Heath Bar Pieces

1 Cup Nutella
2 Eggs
10 Tbsp. Flour
½ Cup Heath Bar Pieces

Preheat oven to 350° and grease a 9x9 pan. Add Nutella and eggs to a large bowl. I had to scoop the Nutella out of the jar because my kids couldn’t get the Nutella to come off the spoon. It’s a little sticky. I also had my kids crack the eggs into a separate bowl to make sure no egg shells found their way into the brownies. Mix the Nutella and eggs. Once the eggs are mostly incorporated begin adding in the flour. Since I had two kids working on the brownies they took turns adding the flour. Each added 5 Tablespoons while the other stirred. I make sure they count out loud so that they each hear how much they are adding, but also so I know they are adding the right amount.
*As you can see they sampled some of the Nutella

Once the flour has been added and completely mixed in. Add the Heath Bar pieces or whatever mix in your dad or husband prefers. Heath Bar is my husbands favorite. Spread the mixture into a greased 9x9 baking pan or cupcake liners if you like. Place it in the oven and bake for 30 minutes. And viola! Easy peasy, chocolate goodness!

And guess what? They taste fantastic!
