June's Kit: Orange Red Velvet Nutella Swirl Brownies

Nutella is not just any child's dream. This month, it's yours!

We are huge fans of this gooey, delectable spread, and for June, we've decided to incorporate this indulgent hazelnut topping into a classic dessert - brownies. Together with orange and chocolate, this month's flavour combination will be nothing short of spectacular.

To make these decadent brownies, grab your unsalted butter and mini chocolate chips and melt it over a double boiler! After a couple of minutes of whisking and stirring, you will have a silky molten chocolate mixture. We know it's difficult, but resist the urge to lick your spoon! This will be the base of your brownies.

Subsequently, zest your fresh orange given in this month's kit; you will add this to your brownie mixture for a citrus kick that will brighten and cut through the richness of the chocolate, adding some robustness to your brownies. If you love orange chocolate, you will definitely enjoy this month’s bake.

If you have seen the ingredients used for this month's kit, you may realise that it does not call for any additional sugar!

Yes, don't worry about sickeningly sweet brownies that leave you in shock after the first bite. For these brownies, our baker has tried and tested multiple recipe variations to come up with the perfect ratio of ingredients. The chocolate chips and Nutella used add just the right amount of sweetness that will leave you asking for seconds.

Fill up the given piping bag with Nutella, cut the tip, and pipe it in a zig-zag pattern on the top of your brownie batter. Next, grab the provided skewer and swirl to your heart’s satisfaction. ;)

If you’re baking with your kids, get them involved - they’ll love doing the swirling! See how we did it in the tutorial video below.
