Peanut Butter Nutella Brownies

Since I have some free time on my hands, I decided to bake something that my husband would enjoy.  He's a huge fan of Peanut Butter and Nutella.  What do you get when you mix the two things together??  Greatness dancing in your mouth!  I watched them closely so they didn't overbake as I had not tried this recipe before.  It was worth it as they came out perfectly moist.  He came home with dinner and dessert waiting on him. 

1/2 c butter, melted
1 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 c flour
1/4 c cocoa powder
1/4 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
4 tbsp (1/4 c) peanut butter
4 tbsp (1/4 c) Nutella

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Line 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper.  

Measure the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt into a small bowl and whisk to combine. 

Stir the sugar into the melted butter.  Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.  Add the dry ingredients and mix to combine. 

Put the Nutella and peanut butter in a small bowl and microwave until runny. (about 30 seconds)  Fold into brownie mix.  If you barely mix it you will have delicious ribbons of the sauce throughout.  

Pour mix into the prepared pan and bake for 20-25 minutes or until top forms a crust. 
** I baked for 20 minutes and kept checking every 5 minutes after that with a toothpick to make sure it came out clean.  I think it was done at 30 minutes but every oven is different.
