Feature: Nutella Peanut Butter Brownies: Easy Brownie, Easy Blondie – In One Recipe

Nutella Peanut Butter Brownies are not just an easy bar cookie recipe to make from scratch. (The bars call for just 7 ingredients.)

What makes these so much fun is that they are a form of both brownies and blondies. Instead of cocoa or melted chocolate for flavor (as is the case with chocolate brownies) or simply brown sugar (typical of blondies), this recipe uses brown sugar and peanut butter.

The result is a rich peanut butter flavor and dense texture. They are topped off, literally, with Nutella (a chocolate spread made from cocoa, hazelnuts, sugar, and additional ingredients, available in grocery stores near the peanut butter) swirled on the surface.

Which makes these a true combination of brownies and blondies. And irresistible.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 20-25 minutes
Makes 16-25 treats, depending upon how you cut them.
