Choc Hazelnut 'Notella' Brownies
It's hard to beat the chocolate hazelnut combos but when you combine that into a refined sugar free deliciously moist brownie, then I'm in Choc nut heaven,
I don't do a lot of baking, but these were definitely worth the effort. Baking means you have to eat it all in a short time period, hence why i normally do frozen treats that I can hide away. Fortunately I have a few people to share these with...
