Do you have 10 minutes?
Do you have any Nutella on hand?
Well if the answer to to both of the above questions is yes - then you are well on the way to making this yummy little treat for yourself.
Thanks to Liss from www.frillsinthehills I jumped on the Nutella bandwagon last week. Liss shared a recipe that she had for home made Nutella - and when I had the Thermomix here last week I gave it a go. If you want the regular Nutella recipe you will find it on her blog. I will give you the Thermomix version here.
120g whole hazelnuts
380g raw sugar
60g cocoa powder
1/4 cup canola oil
Preheat the oven to 200C.
Place the hazlenuts on a baking tray lined with baking paper and roast for approximately 7 minutes, move the hazlenuts around and return to the oven for another 5 minutes.
Place the hazlenuts on a tea towel, cover, and roll the hazlenuts between hour hands to remove the skins. You don't have to get all of the skins off - just do the best you can.
In the Thermomix bowl (TM) place the raw sugar - process for 20 seconds on speed 9 - this will give you icing sugar.
Place the hazlenuts in the TM bowl blend for 10 seconds on speed 8. This will turn the hazlenuts into hazlenut meal, and the oil will begin to emerge.
Add the cocoa and icing sugar, process for 10 seconds on speed 8. Add the oil and process for 3 minutes on speed 3.
The nutella will last up to a month in the fridge.
After we had made the nutella we attempted to make home made Ferrero Rocher - but they were not a huge success - I know where we went wrong now, and I will attempt the recipe again and share it with you.
However, now I had a stash of nutella, and when I stumbled across this little beauty of a recipe I was ready to rock and roll!!!
Nutella Fudge Brownies
Makes 12 mini muffin size brownies
1/2 cup nutella
1 large egg
5 tbs plain flour
Preheat oven to 180C.
Line a 12 cup mini muffin pan with paper liners.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the nutella and the egg until smooth. Add the flour and whisk until combined.
Divide the mixture among the prepared muffin tins.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out with a few gooey crumbs attached. Remember - they are brownies - so gooey is good!
Put the muffin pan onto a rack to cool for a few minutes, then remove the muffins from the pan to cool completely.
Dust with icing sugar.
These WILL NOT LAST LONG - make a double batch!!!!
What a wonderful little treat to whip up!!
Can you believe only 3 ingredients!! And they take only 10 minutes!!!
So Dear Readers do you have a quick little treat that you like to whip up, and if so what is it?
