I'm so thankful I don't have the ingredients!

While reading through my many cooking and recipe blogs just now. I came across a recipe for this:

Nutella Caramel Hazelnut Brownies!!!!!!!!!

My heart started to race and I panicked! My eyes scanned through the list of ingredients and began to beat faster!

"I think I have ALL those ingredients."

In which case, I would just have to go satisfy my current nutella obsession and whip these up (yikes!).

I read a bit further and breathed a sigh of relief when I noted that I do not have caramel sauce or hazelnuts in the house (I think).

Crisis avoided. I will not make these (today that is) because I am missing two ingredients!

(Recipe and acknowledgements follow). I cannot guarantee these are good because as of today at 1:30 pm (eastern time) I have not baked these!

Prep Time 10 Minutes
Cook Time 30 Minutes
Difficulty Easy
System US MetricUpdate
½ cups All-purpose Flour
⅓ cups Cocoa Powder
¼ teaspoons Baking Powder
1 pinch Salt
1 cup Sugar
½ sticks Unsalted Butter
2 whole Eggs
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
¼ cups Nutella - Melted (more If Desired)
¼ cups Caramel Sauce - Melted
1 bag (8 Oz.) Small Bag Of Hazelnuts, Or More If Desired

Preparation Instructions
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Into a mixing bowl, add your flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder. Using a whisk, mix together and set aside. Into your stand mixer, add the sugar and butter; cream together. Add in eggs one at a time and mix well. Add in your vanilla. GRADUALLY add in your flour mixture until it’s well combined. Batter should be thick and sticky.

Spray an ovenproof dish with cooking spray. Place a piece of parchment paper (slightly larger than your dish to allow for handles) inside. It will adhere to the bottom of the dish. Take HALF of your brownie batter and smooth it on top of the parchment paper. Take your caramel sauce and spoon it on top of the brownie mixture covering the entire layer of brownie. Place the remaining brownie batter on top, smoothing it out. Place in the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes until sides are firm and center is no longer giggly.

Allow brownies to cool completely before removing. Cut your brownies to your desired size using a serrated knife. Make a small indentation with your finger into each brownie. Take your melted Nutella and drizzle over the tops of the brownies. Garnish with the hazelnuts.

I'm going to try my hardest NOT to get all those ingredients - or at least not to get them until I have somewhere to take this dessert where all but one piece will get eaten.
