It is fitting that we made these brownies the week of Valentine’s day, because I am in love with them.
Yes, I said it.
And I’ll say it again: LOVE.
Inanimate objects, you say? Psh. Details.
Now I know my husband reads this blog, so it might get a little awkward around the house, but that’s a small price to pay for a brownie this good.
These were really, truly, outrageously good if you’re a fudgy brownie fanatic like myself. I don’t know how they held their shape so well when cut, because they seemed to melt into pure chocolate bliss as soon as I bit into them.
I added some hazelnut paste and chopped hazelnuts, which turned out to be a good call. I think the brownies needed some kind of crunch to break up the gooey texture a bit. I couldn’t really taste the hazelnut paste in the brownie part, though, so next time I’ll double it so it has a chance against all of that chocolate. (Really, though, I can’t believe it’s only 6 ounces. Tastes like 60!)
My husband has taking to having a nightly bowl of vanilla ice cream, topped with a warm hazelnut brownie, and I have taken to stealing bites of it every night. People, I swear to you, this is the closest thing to heaven on earth you will find.
In fact, this might be more than plain love. This might be Princess Bride-styletwu wuv, which as we all know, will fowow you foweveh. So tweasure your wuv! I know I’m treasuring mine several times a day.
