Best Brownie Ever!

After talking about it for months, I finally made them--fabulous, high-protein brownies! (aka nutella-peanut butter brownies).
Here's the photo--And here's the recipe-- (From Food Network, via Sarah Kelley)
These have great flavor and great texture--chewy, soft and fudgy.
Puh-leese let them cool before eating--they really do taste better!

1 cup unsalted butter
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 large eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup cocoa powder (non-alkalized)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Dash salt
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup hazelnut-chocolate spread

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 by 13-inch glass baking dish (or line it with parchment paper).

Melt the butter over low heat; when melted remove from heat and stir in the sugar and vanilla. Add the eggs 1 at a time, beating after each addition. Add flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt, and mix well.

Mix the peanut butter and chocolate spread in a small microwave-proof bowl, and heat in the microwave until it reaches a runny consistency. (This is a great time to sample a taste) Stir the mixture into the batter; then pour it into the baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes. Allow to cool before cutting and serving.

Will you make these when we come? I still don't have an oven and I miss baking SO MUCH!
