Ingredients

To make the Brownie:

  • 2 oz (60 grams) of bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 stick (115 grams) of unsalted butter
  • 1.5 oz (45 grams) of nutella
  • ½ cup + 3 tbsp (163 grams) of granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp of flaky sea salt
  • 2/3 cup (120 grams) of all-purpose flour

To make the popsicles:

  • 1½ cup of whole milk
  • 3/4 cup (230 grams) ~ 1 cup (306 grams) of sweetened condensed milk

Preparation

To make the nutella brownie:

Preheat the oven on 350ºF/175ºC.

In a microwave-proof bowl, add the bittersweet chocolate and unsalted butter. Microwave on high at a 30-seconds interval, stirring the mixture in between, until just melted (approx 1:30 ~ 2 min). Whisk in the granulated sugar and large eggs until thick and even, then add the vanilla extract and sea salt. Whisk again until even. Add the flour, fold the mixture together with a spatula until there is no flour-lumps left. Pour the batter into a parchment-lined, 8″ square-pan or round-pan. Bake in the oven for 25 min.

Let the brownie cool for 30 min.

To make the brownie popsicles:

Break the brownies up into large chunks. Lay a couple of pieces at the bottom of the popsicle-mold and insert the wooden stick. Fill the empty space loosely with more brownies until they reach to the top. Repeat with the rest.

Combine whole milk and sweetened condensed milk together, and warm in the microwave just enough for the sweetened condensed milk to dissolve. Whisk the mixture together to make sure it's fully incorporated, then pour the milk into the popsicle-molds until it fills to the top.

Freeze for at least 6 hours to overnight until hardened.
