Nutella Brownie Bites

These only have three ingredients.  I was skeptical too, but I had a large quantity of Nutella that I figured was better baked and shared rather than me eating it by the spoonful day by day.  These actually tasted better than I expected them to.  They had a subtle Nutella flavor, and a moist consistency.  They were not show stoppers, but were nothing short of yummy.  A satisfactory way to indulge your sweet tooth a little bit.  Dessert of the home-made variety definitely doesn't come any easier than this.  I topped mine with leftover caramel which added a little more flavor and made them more moist.  The original recipe tops the brownies with crushed hazelnuts, so do whichever you please.

Adapted from Savory Sweet Life
Makes 12 brownie bites

1/2 Cup Nutella
1 Large Egg
5 Tablespoons flour
topping of your choice-crushed hazelnuts, or caramel sauce works well

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Grease a  mini muffin pan

Mix Nutella and egg until smooth.  Add flour and stir until blended.  Spoon into muffin pan.  If you are using nuts as the topping, add them now.

Bake in preheated oven for 12 minutes.  If using caramel, use your finger to make a small indent in the top of each brownie.  Spoon a small amount of caramel in the indent.  Allow to cool slightly and serve.  Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature.
