Peanut Butter-Hazelnut Brownies

Over the years I’d been adding this and that to my basic brownie recipe—and then I came up with this one! —Denise Wheeler, Newaygo, Michigan

  • Makes
    2 dozen


  • 1 cup butter, softened

    I couldn't really taste the peanut butter( I'm one of the peanut butter fans) so I added 1/4 more just to bring out the taste. Overall it tasted amazing! Totally going to make it again.

    I made these for my son's "band" 4 teenage boys. They wiped out almost all of them in one rehearsal. Easy to make and they loved it.I was a hero.

    This is one of the best brownies I have ever eaten. They are so moist and chewy and the malted milk balls, peanut butter, and nutella give it a really great flavor!
