Waking up at 4 am is really a trying thing. Sure, you get used to it. Kinda. But when you get so used to it, that you wake up at 3:30 and psych yourself into staying away or else you will somehow, miss your alarm that has never failed you, so just lay there and stew over everything known to man, well – you know Monday is going to be a good day.
So what pray tell fills my head at 0’dark thirty?
Can I possibly get my hair to do this double pony tail? Lol, nope.
Can I reheat that stuffed artichoke for lunch? Yup, this is going to be revived food obsession.
Oh, don’t forget to clean the dogs ears today – dang those allergies!
I think Huck needs a Sven reindeer friend. The Frozen characters obviously need to be real.
How many eye primers will I have to go through before I find the perfect one? Urban Decay feels like acid on my eye lids, Sonia Kashuk feels like putting on plaster, and NP works enough, but it definitely lackluster. HALP.
All Monday’s should begin with a double chocolate Nutella toffee skillet brownie.
There aren’t many things that render a grown woman speechless, but this brownie is definitely on the list of things to do it. And my speechlessness was validated by my best friend, when dove spoon first into the skillet like two lions over a brownie zebra. It was mayhem. Then naturally, we washed it all down with a bottle of wine. Classy.
Even Ben got in on that action, and kept going back for more – proclaiming that I need to bake from scratch more often. WUT? *Throws side eye* Stop, try that again Sweet Man. There was no walking that back no matter how hard he tried. So Beka and I just sat back and watched it happen. And it was hilarious.
You want comedy – watch a man back peddle from telling his wife who bakes and cooks for a living that she doesn’t back from scratch enough… It’s really cute.
And it’s a good thing he is really cute because I didn’t go lion over a zebra over him for speaking such things. I just dug into the brownie and used chocolate to temper the fire. It worked. Ben lived to see another day.
I can’t say the same for the brownie. It never stood a chance. We are brownie killers.
Double Chocolate Nutella Toffee Skillet Brownie
- 1/2 cup Butter, melted and cooled
- 3/4 cup Nutella, or chocolate hazelnut spread
- 1/2 cup Brown Sugar or Coconut Sugar
- 1/2 cup Sugar
- 2 Eggs
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1 2/3 cups Flour
- 2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
- 1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
- 1/2 cup Toffee Pieces, like Heath Bits o' Toffee
Two Bowl Directions::
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl with a whisk or spatula, butter, Nutella, brown and white sugar, eggs, and vanilla until smooth. Stir in the flour, salt and baking soda until a batter forms.
- Stir in 3/4 of the chocolate chips and 1/4 cup of the toffee pieces.
- Spoon the batter into a oven proof skillet, cast iron or stainless steel that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Even the batter out and press to within 1/2" of the edges of the skillet - the brownie will spread out, but leave the room between the batter and the sides of the skillet so the edges don't over cook.
- Top with remaining chocolate chips and toffee bits. Place in oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the edges are set and a toothpick placed in the middle of the brownie comes out clean. (Check - timing depends on the oven)
- Let the brownie cool on a wire rack in the skillet until just warm - about 45 minutes. It will still be very soft in the middle, but as it cools, the brownie will set entirely.
- Drizzle with additional softened Nutella if desired, or ice cream!
ONE SKILLET Directions::
In your cast iron skillet, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Create a well in the middle of the pan. Into the well, add in the butter, Nutella, brown sugar, white sugar, eggs, and vanilla and gently whisk those together - and begin slowly incorporating and folding in the flour mixture. Add in chocolate chips and toffee pieces, gently folding in.
Bake according to directions above. Drizzle with softened nutella if desired.
