Chocolate Fudge Cheesecake Brownies With Nutella Frosting And Pecans and Nutella Crisps With Caramel Surprise


Delicious but not bowl-you-over sweet. The cheesecake addition cuts the sweetness down. I am grabbing ingredients out of my pantry and using them up to gain more space. What a great way to go! =o)
Chocolate Fudge Cheesecake Brownies With Nutella Frosting And Pecans
4 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate (Bakers is good)
1 c. butter
2 1/2 c. sugar... See More
4 eggs
1 T. vanilla
1/8 t. salt
1 c. all-purpose flour

CHEESECAKE Ingredients:
1 (8-oz.) pkg cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. sugar
1 lrg egg
1 t. vanilla
1/4 c. all-purpose flour

Frosting:
1/2 of a 13-oz jar Nutella (stir oils up before spreading)
1/2 c. toasted and crushed pecans


Directions for Brownie Base:
Preheat oven to 350.
Melt Unsweeted chocolate and butter in a bowl over simmering water.
Take mixture off heat and stir in sugar until well mixed.
Add eggs, vanilla and salt and beat well.
Fold in flour and mix just until smooth.
Pour into prepared pan and set aside.

CHEESECAKE Directions:
Beat cream cheese and sugar in a mixing bowl.
Add egg and vanilla and mix until smooth.
Add flour; mix until just blended.
Place spoonfuls of cream cheese batter on brownies. Swirl cream cheese mixture into brownie base mixture, using a butter knife.
Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick or knive inserted in center comes out clean. NOW, while brownies are still warm BUT not hot; spread on the Nutella like a frosting And spread your crushed pecans overall. YUMMY! I chill mine in the refrigerator before cutting

Trying to finish up my jar of Nutella, started making this recipe and found out I had to open up a second jar of Nutella because I didn't have enough left over from the brownie recipe. I think my eye is twitching because I STILL have leftover Nutella.

Nutella Crisps With Caramel Surprise
1 1/2 c. unsalted butter - softened
1 1/4 c. Nutella
1 c. granulated sugar
1 1/2 c. brown sugar - packed
4 eggs
4 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
2 t. baking soda
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
10 oz box Milk Duds
1/2 c. granulated sugar for coating

Directions:
Cream together butter, Nutella, granulated and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the eggs, one at a time.
In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients - flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Gradually add to the butter and sugar mixture. Cover dough and refrigerate for at least an hour.

Preheat oven to 350.
Use Tablespoon of dough and make a ball. Insert a Milk Dud into center. Roll in granulated sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet; bake for 9 to 10 minutes.
Refrigerate dough between baking periods or the dough will get to sticky to work with. Do NOT overbake. You want soft and chewy cookies.

Hi I was wondering if you could tell me what size of pan you used for the brownies. They look sooooooooo good--I can't wait to try them. If you could email me that would be great. It's dpkayli at yahoo.
THANKS.

Aaak - I just made these and noticed it doesn't say what size pan 8x8 or 9x13 . I see the same comment that wasn't answered. I looked at the picture in the pan and it doesn't look square so I'm hoping this is a 9x13 although the batter looks like it would be a thin layer. I've noticed that people do tend not to mentioned the pan size sometimes and it drives me crazy!
