My mother found these brownies on a Pinterest page, and she mentioned them to me. We decided to try and make them to see how they would turn out.

They were good. The top gave them extra flavor that was probably needed.

The first that batch we made about 4-5 months ago wasn’t as good, since we didn’t know what we were doing. Here we are now, making them again and making a food column about it.

Now, the brownies take not too long but long, if you get what I mean.

When my mother first read this recipe, she thought it was fake. (Instead of “fake” I was originally going to put “bullcrap,” then my mother persuaded me to put “fake.” Bad idea.)

The brownies have kind of a desert feeling, meaning like hot and crusty. Because, well, they are hot and crusty.

If you try to make this, I’d suggest you put the eggs first, Nutella and then flour. I’d also suggest using a hand mixer to mix these ingredients. If it’s a little bit thick, maybe put a teaspoon of vegetable oil to loosen it up.

If you want to start early as a young “cook,” this would be a great recipe to maybe start off with. I mean, it’s three-ingredient brownies, so why not?

I’ve started grilling sausages to have more experience with this sort of stuff.

If you’re a man doing this, just know that women love a man who can cook. Best get an early start, boys.

Jack out.

For the recipe, see the Banner's online or print edition.
