My friend had a craving for this Ferrero Rocher Brownies. She liked it after tasting it when I first shared it with my colleagues a few months ago. I first baked this brownies after seeing Jamie's of My Baking Addiction post but didn't manage to take any pictures, hence no entry for this yummy dessert until now.
This is one expensive brownies. Just the ingredients cost me $20! And that doesn't include the Nutella used for the frosting, which I decided to omit. But it's worth it because the taste is just amazing. The ingredients were costly mainly becauseI used the ones imported from Europe: Belgium butter, French chocolate & Italian rocher! It's all about quality ingredients.... Since I omitted the Nutella frosting, I call this brownies Ferrero Rocher Brownies instead of Nutella Brownies.
