Hazelnut Heath Bar Brownies

Ok, so I must tell you that the 4th of July is one of my very favorite holidays ever. I love everything about it from honoring my country to cheesy parades to family barbeques and fireworks. I will say though, that a lot of those memories are attached to some type of food. That being said I want to share some treats that will make memories and also be a big hit for the summer. This is one of my latest creations, and I must say it is TASTY!! If you love a fudgy brownie or hazelnut, or toffee, basically you will think you have died and gone to heaven. Take a peek and then try it out for me!!
Here are your basic needs, a great brownie recipe (I'll share one with you!), a small container of Nutella (YUM) and 4 Heath bars (YUM AGAIN!).
2 Cubes margarine
10 TBS. Cocoa
2 Cups Sugar
4 Eggs
1 1/2 Cups Flour
Dash of Salt
1 Small container Nutella
4 Small Heath bars crushed
Melt the margarine and mix in your cocoa. Then add your sugar and eggs. Beat well. Lastly add your flour and salt. Spread into a greased 9x13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Pull your brownies out of the oven. They will only be half cooked at this point. Open the Nutella and drop spoonfuls all over your brownies. I used the whole jar, but you can use less if you want them less fudgy. Next take a butter knife and swirl the Nutell into the uncooked brownie batter. Be careful not to go all the way to the bottom of the pan. Stay in the uncooked batter on top. Now put back into the oven for another 15 minutes or until the brownie batter is cooked through. The Nutella will stay soft and fudgy. Remove from the oven and immediately top with your Heath bar pieces pressing them gently into the top of the brownie so they don't fall off when you bite into them. Cool completely. These are great hot with ice cream, but if you want to cut them into bars I would suggest refrigerating them for a cleaner cut. Happy Baking!!!

Here they are with the Nutella just dropped on them. You can see that the edges of the brownie are baked but the center is still raw.

Here they are once the Nutella is swirled in ensuring that chocolate hazelnut fudge in every bite!!!
