Nutella Squares


Its my daughter’s birthday and I wanted to make some eggless desserts for her to distribute in school. Had already decided on an eggless chocolate cupcake and then wanted to make one more. Nutella is everyones favourite and knew for sure that i wanted to use that as one of the ingredients.


I had bought Pooja Dhingra’s The Big book of Treats a while back but had never attempted to bake anything from it. Recently I got to taste her renowned sea salt macaroons and cupcakes, they sure lived up to their reputation. So picked up her book and drooled over each post, finally zeroed in on the Nutella squares.


It turned out quite well, and was quite excited to see Pooja retweet my Nutella post.
