Things are busy at my husband’s squadron, meaning that weekends are frequently not our own these days. I was feeling just a tiny bit sorry for myself after Sampson went into work for some afternoon-into-night flying on Sunday, so I decided I’d better nip that in the bud with an immediate chocolate infusion.
Three words came to my attitude’s rescue: Fudgy. Nutella. Brownies.
By the time I pulled these babies out of the oven, I was feeling generous enough to wait for Sampson to get home so we could try them together. My magnanimity may have had something to do with the fact that I had quieted my most immediate chocolate craving by licking the spoon. Let’s be honest, getting to eat the batter is the real reason to bake from scratch. Even so, those hours until we got to dig into the finished product felt interminable, especially considering that the chocolaty aroma filled my house and permeated my very soul.
The way Sampson’s eyes lit up when he rolled into the house post-flight was well worth my sorely tested patience. The brownies were amazing. If you like chocolate and that divine nectar known as Nutella, you’ll definitely want to bookmark the recipe.
