Nutella Crunchie Brownies

I was lucky enough to receive a neat baking book called Desserts 4 Today by Abigail Johnson Dodge after being in a twitter chat with @finecooking. Its a fun book and all the desserts only have 4 ingredients and for me this is quite appealing. The day I got it I made the nutella fudge brownies and changed it up slightly to add Crunchie a British honeycomb candy bar my parents had brought with them.

 I must confess I wasn't going to mention the book, but after developing the chow and chatter recipe app I understand how hard it is to do these things and now more than ever will gladly help others promote their work.


  • 1/2 a cup of nutella
  • 1 egg
  • 5 tablespoons of all purpose flour
  • about 3 small crushed crunchies
  • the book added chopped nuts to the top
  1. whisk the nutella and egg together then fold in flour 
  2. add to muffin tins with crunchie sprinkled on the top and bake at 350 for 12 minutes, the mixture will be wet and gooey per the book, very important to know this as not to over cook them.
All in all these were yummy little treats I mean we all love nutella, but a little rich for us, I prefer a simple cake :-)

What's your favorite baking book?

Have a great weekend everyone

    Have a great weekend.

  15. I love those crunchie bars. Aren't they delicious. The brownies sound and look wonderful.

  16. Crunchies are my faaave dipped in tea (is that weird?) I love this idea. A must try!

  17. Looks awesome, but I think I remember seeing a pic of it on FB and really wanting one then. I can get many candy bars here but I don't think we have crunchies.

  18. These do sound rich and decadent. We don't have crunchies over here, but I'm sure we have something similar. That is a very easy dessert, great for when you are short on time.

  19. I love nutella. What a great combination!

  20. I'll bet Jasmine loved these! I have to agree, for me a simple cake is more appealing (or really good chocolate).

  21. I love crunchie bars! Great to see a new use for them in baking!

  22. Those look so great Rebecca and I'll have to save them for a cheat day. Anything with Nutella never fails me! Roz

  23. I feel so out of the loop-- I have heard of Crunchies but have never eaten them. But I HAVE eaten Nutella, and it's some of the best stuff on earth!!!

  24. I love Nutella! It was not until my first trip to Europe that I discovered Europeans put chocolate on their bread-awesome.

    Love those brownies.

  25. oh what a delicious combo for brownies, delicious!

  26. These brownies have the best ingredients,all my fav and easy to make..what more I can ask you for an easy weekend dessert,my friend :) Your effort is genuine so you need not worry about what you do..

  27. These sound yummy. The cookbook sounds good too. I like the fact that it uses only a few ingredients. I love Nutella. You should link these up to It is a new blog from Reeni at Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice; the challenge for this month is Nutella:)

  29. I've been contemplating different variations of these brownies as well, but for some reason candy never came to mind. You Brits love your honeycomb candy though, don't you?

  43. Desserts with just 4 ingredients? I have to look for the book. Sounds like its too good to be true.

    Your brownies look and sound so delicious. wonder what candies I can use instead of crunchie, never seen them around.

    Thanks for sharing Rebecca

  45. Roxana i am sure yours will be great
    momma cupcake oh sorry about that just discard it then

  46. Crunchies are the best! It is a good thing they are a little pricey in the US or I would eat them by the pound!

  47. These sound amazing Rebecca! I love the book too - to be able to make treats with only four ingredients?! How cool and easy is that!
