RECIPE :: Browned Butter Nutella Bite Blondies

Oh yes it is.

I would apologize for giving you two food posts in a row, but I'm not.
I will, however, say "you're welcome"!! :)

Browned Butter Nutella Bite Blondies

1 cup {or so} Nutella
10 T butter {1 stick + 2 T}
2 cups dark brown sugar, packed {I used 16oz bag}
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 t vanilla
2 large eggs {or 3 backyard chicken eggs}
2 cups flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1/4 cup Nutella

1.  Line a baking sheet with wax paper and make a little room in your freezer.  Make 12 small lumps of Nutella on the baking sheet, each about 2-3 teaspoons.  Place in freezer while preparing the rest of the batter.
2.  Preheat oven to 350.  Grease 8x11x2 {2 quart} baking dish well.
3.  Melt butter in a small saucepan, stirring occasionally until foam of butter starts to turn golden and smell nutty.  Remove from heat and pour immediately into a mixing bowl, or the bowl of a stand mixer.
4.  Stir in brown sugar and cream cheese.  Beat for about 2 minutes.
5.  Add vanilla and eggs, beat well.
6.  Add 1/4 cup of Nutella and swirl it with a spatula - enough to give the batter a swirled streaky look.  Pour into prepared dish.
7.  Remove Nutella from freezer and drop each dollop into the dough, distributing them evenly.  Press them down enough to smooth some batter on top.
8.  Bake for 25-30 minutes, depending on your oven.  Top should be golden brown and the edges should be very set.  If the center seems gooey and the edges seem brown take it out and let it sit.
9.  Let the bars COOL COMPLETELY.  Cut into bars and serve.  With milk.

{Strongly consider serving in a bowl with ice cream.  We did not and, even though these little slices of heaven do completely hold up on their own, to this day* I feel the pangs of regret.  Thankfully there will be a next time.}

* I made these yesterday.**
