I created these deep chocolate brownies by combining several recipes.  After they cooled, I divided them up and put some in the freezer or we would have eaten the entire pan!  They’re now a family favorite.

Hazelnut Brownies Recipe

Hazelnut Brownies

1 cup butter, melted

2 cup sugar

4 eggs

2 tsp. vanilla

1 cup all-purpose flour

¾ cup baking cocoa

½ tsp. baking powder

¼ tsp. salt

½ cup chopped hazelnuts

Frosting:   2 cups (12 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 cup heavy whipping cream or refrigerated hazelnut nondairy creamer

2 Tbsp. butter

½ cup coarsely chopped hazelnuts

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Beat in vanilla.  Combine in flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; gradually add to butter mixture.  Fold in hazelnuts.

Spread into a greased 13×9 inch baking pan.  Bake at 350 F. for 30 – 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean (do not overbake).  Cool on a wire rack.

For frosting, in a microwave-safe bowl, melt chips and cream until chips are melted; stir until smooth.  Stir in butter until melted.  Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until frosting achieves spreading consistency, stirring several times.  Frost brownies.  Sprinkle with hazelnuts.
