Brownie with Nutella Syrup

  Today we are starting with week 2, 58th Edition of Blogging Marathon. For day 1 under the theme Tea Time Snacks  am here with a delicious sweet treat, Brownie with Nutella  Syrup. Tea Time snacks can be sweet or savory. People prefer savory snacks mostly but for a change I have made this delicious snack for my guests last weekend.   Nutella, milk and  whip cream mixed together will make a nice and smooth syrup which can be served with not only brownie but also on any kind of cake, milkshake or even pancakes.  Here goes the recipe......


Nutella 1/4 cup
Heavy whip cream 1/4 cup
Milk 5 to 6 spoons


As nutella is very thick, first will add milk to it and make it a semi liquid mixture.
Now add heavy whip cream and fold it well, do not mix it in a circular motion.
I have used store bought brownie mix to prepare Brownie. 
Once the brownie is baked and cooled down spread the nutella syrup on top.
Top it with whipped cream and and serve.
That's it Brownie with yummy…
