NUTELLA BROWNIE

For many, Nutella is the nectar of the gods and, unsurprisingly, it also acts as the perfect chocolate-y ingredient to anchor a dessert.

Since the decadent spread already contains fat, milk and chocolate it is a great ingredient for baking. 

Eggs and flour are the only other items you need, and chances are they will already be in your kitchen.

To start with, you need one and a quarter of a cup of Nutella, two eggs and half a cup of plain flour, sifted.

Once you have preheated the oven to 175 degrees Celsius you will need to place one and one quarter of the cups of the Nutella, the eggs and flour into a bowl, before whisking them together with a fork until they’re combined.

Next, transfer the mixture to a baking paper-lined tin and put it straight in to the oven for just under 30 minutes.

Once it’s cooled, smear the final half a cup of Nutella across the top as a tasty hazelnut-flavoured icing, or leave bare if you prefer, and cut into slices.

There are moments that the chocolate craving is so strong only a decadent dessert will suffice.

Marie Phitidis is a Sydney-based blogger who manages to create delightful desserts that you didn’t know you wanted in the first place.

She posts her creations over at Phoodie where photos accompany each step of the recipe, so if you’re more of a takeaway person than a culinary chef you can make her desserts too. 

Roughly chop the 400g of Toblerone and place it in a large microwave safe bowl with the 2 cups of cream

One of her recipes that has proved to be an absolute hit is her Toblerone mousse.

There are only three ingredients for this simple recipe and most of it is made in the microwave, although you can use the stove if you prefer.

Once you have your Toblerone chocolate, cream and marshmallows you’re ready to go.

All you need to do is melt the chocolate in the microwave with cream and marshmallows until you get a smooth consistency. 

Then whip some cream before adding it to the cooled Toblerone by folding it through with a spatula.

Finally, you have to divide the mixture into 12 small cups and let set – it’s as simple as that!

Ingredients  

400g Toblerone

2 cups thickened cream

210g white marshmallows

For the second stage you will need:

2 cups thickened cream (you need to whip this)

250g Toblerone (roughly chopped to decorate mousse)

Method

1. Roughly chop the 400g of Toblerone and place it in a large microwave safe bowl with the 2 cups of cream and the marshmallows. Stir thoroughly.

2. Microwave on high for 3 minutes (stir at 30 second intervals so it doesn’t burn) note: it may take more or less than 3 minutes, you are simply aiming to melt all ingredients together.

3. Remove mixture from microwave, use a whisk to give it a good stir and set aside on your bench for it to cool completely.

4. Whip the additional cream to soft peak stage and chop the additional Toblerone. 

5. Add the whipped cream to the cooled Toblerone – start by folding it through with a spatula and then use a whisk to combine it at the final stages. The mixture should be very smooth, but remember, the melted Toblerone will mean that there are some almond nougat lumps and that’s all good!

6. Divide the mixture into 12 small cups/bowls/tea cups/whatever you like and place into the fridge for 45 minutes or so, just so that the top layer sets slightly.

7. Remove from fridge and top each serve with a generous sprinkling of Toblerone.

Combining chocolate and cream is something that always seems to work, which is what makes Oreo fudge such a mouth watering treat. 

The most dangerous thing of all about this fudge is that it’s so easy to make because as well as it having a limited amount of ingredients, you only need a microwave.

Although most people make the fudge using original flavoured Oreos, there are plenty of other flavours available that would be fun to try, or you could even use your favourite biscuit or cookie.
