Ok, once you have stopped drooling over the title of this post, take a look at the recipe below!

I found the original over here.

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup Nutella – I used the Pick n Pay Hazelnut Chocolate Spread (Its the closest one to Nutella I have ever tasted and its about a third of the price)

choc spread

 

  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed (I used light brown sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract (I used my home made extract)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch salt, optional and to taste
  • 170 grams dark chocolate, chopped (I used about half a box of dark chocolate chips)

Method

  • Using a hand beater (or stand mixer) combine the egg, Nutella, peanut butter, brown sugar, vanilla and beat to cream ingredients for about 5 minutes. 
  • Add the flour, baking soda and salt.
  • Mix until combined.
  • Add the chocolate chips and using a wooden spoon mic until just combined.
  • Scoop out batter roughly the diameter of a R5 coin and using your hands squeeze into balls. They will be very oily!
  • Place on a sprayed baking tray.  About 5cm apart or about 6/8 balls per tray.
  • Place your trays in the fridge for no less than 2 hours.
  • Once chilled, set you oven to 180°C and bake each tray for 10 minutes.

I was browsing around on Pinterest and came across a recipe for Nutella brownies, I couldnt resist and decided to make them tonight…

Hamantaschen

March 8, 2012

Its Purim!

My favourite part of Purim is eating hamantaschen with mon (poppy seeds) but since not everyone likes poppy seeds I decided to try my hand at making a Nutella hamantaschen.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup butter or margerine
  • Your choice of filling (you can use a poppy seed mixture, chocolate spread, jam or nuts)

 

Method

  • Sift together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
  • Mix in eggs and butter (I melted the butter slightly in the microwave).
  • Mix until a dough forms.
  • Roll out the dough and cut out large rounds.
  • Transfer the rounds to a greased baking tray and place a teaspoon of your filling in the middle.
  • Fold  your circle on three ‘sides’ and pinch together to create a triangular parcel, leaving the  middle open so you can see the filling.
  • Bake for 15 – 20min or until golden brown in a 180°C oven.

 

Enjoy!
