Cheater Brownies with Nutella - YUM!!!

My husband loves Nutella.  He will eat it on just about anything.  When he can't find something to use as a base, he will eat it straight out of the jar with a spoon.  Ok...confession, I have also been known to eat Nutella right out of the jar.  It is one of those guilty pleasures, except I don't feel any guilt!  It is worth every calorie!! For Father's Day, I wanted to make a dessert that I knew he would love.  As I was doing my weekly grocery shopping, I noticed our grocery store was running Nutella on sale...PERFECT.  So, I picked up a box of brownie mix and ice cream.  Brownies, ice cream, and Nutella, how could I go wrong? :)  I loving refer to boxed brownies as cheater brownies.  Homemade brownies are wonderful but the boxed mixes are great and so fast.
The Betty Crocker Chocolate Chunk is my favorite.  

I mixed the batter according to the directions on the back of the box.

Then I sprayed the bottom of the pan with non stick cooking spray.  Next, I coated the bottom of the pan with cocoa powder.  You could probably skip this but why would you want to? :)

Next... I grabbed the "good stuff".

After pouring the brownie batter into the pan, I spooned generous amounts of Nutella over the the top of the batter.

Using a butter knife, I swirled the Nutella throughout the batter.  Next, I used the back of the brownie mix box to determine oven temperature and baking time.  

This is what they looked like when I pulled them out of the oven.

To serve this amazing, decadent, heavenly warm brownie,  I added a scoop of ice cream and melted Nutella. 

These were a huge hit with my entire family.  We love our cheater brownies with Nutella - YUMMM!  I have a feeling these will become a Father's Day tradition and a weekend tradition and a "I had a bad day" tradition and a....you get the picture. :)
