We had a very busy weekend around here! My parents came to visit for a few days, so we have been busy with them. My 7 year old is going to be 8 very soon, so there was lots of birthday celebration going on as well. My brother and SIL came up for the day to help celebrate. My 7 year old had the coldest football game ever on Sunday night. Then on Monday we managed to get at least 12 inches of snow!!. So given all the busy going on, I am all about easy right now!
You can not get much easier than these brownies. 4 ingredients. Yes, that is right, there are just 4 ingredients in here. One of which is the M&M’s, and you could totally leave that out! Or use nuts, or chocolate chips, or a combination of the two if you want to go crazy! But trust me, you need to try these!
You all know my love for Nutella, so when Katrina posted her Nutella Oat Breakfast Cookie I was all over them! I was craving brownies though, and I knew Nutella worked great in cookies with just a couple ingredients, so why not brownies? So just now, I am going to check out Katrina’s recipe, and I see she got her idea from Nest of Posies. Looks like Nest of Posies and I had the same idea!
Nutella Brownie Cups
½ cup flour
1 cup Nutella
? cup M&M’s
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 8-10 cups of a muffin pan with liners.
In a bowl combine flour, nutella, and eggs. Mix until well combined. Fold in most of the M&M’s, leaving a few to put on top.
Scoop batter into muffin cups. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Be careful not to over bake these. They are best slightly underdone.
