I managed to peel myself away from your tempting web. I was stronger than you imagined. You called out to me in Italy the last few years, but I had my pride, and looked the other way. Destiny sometimes has a different plan.
While the brownies are baking, make the ganache and the peanut butter layer. The ganache has to be cooled, so make sure to make them while brownies are in oven.
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
4 large eggs, room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsweetened natural cocoa powder
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons Nutella
Step 1: Brownie Directions
1 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-2 tablespoons hot water
When the brownies are completely cooled, turn them over onto your serving plate. Spread the peanut butter cream evenly over the brownies.
When the ganache is completely cooled, spread the ganache over the peanut butter cream. If it flows over the side, lift it up with a flat spatula, and spread evenly over the peanut butter cream. Make sure to spread ganache evenly. Let it stand at room temperature for about an hour until it is set.
When the ganache has set, cut into squares. Score the brownies first.It is important to have a clean knife while you are cutting the squares. Each time you make a cut, clean the knife with a paper towel or a towel.
See how clean the cuts are?
