These double chocolate bars are simply amazing. I can explain them in one sentence – moist brownie base, topped with chocolate and nutella frosting. Or in other words…chocolate + chocolate + nutella + chocolate .
Brownie base takes 30 minutes to prepare, including baking time and frosting could be made in the meantime, so basically, this chocolate goodness could be ready in no time.
I made this dessert at least 10 times last month around the holidays. This recipe is definitely in my top ten of easy, quick and festive desserts and it´s perfect for the times when you want to bake something delicious for a special event, family or friends but have pretty much no time to do that. That´s when this recipe comes in handy.
And if I could explain all the ¨mmmm-s” and happy faces from the people who tasted it.
Since this is the first recipe I am sharing this year, I would like to use the opportunity to wish you guys Happy New Year. May 2017 is full of joy, happiness and adventures!
I am thankful for and to each and every one of you, your lovely comments and trust in me.
I wish for more time for the blog, more time to spend with my family, to cook, photograph and travel.
Happy New Year!
