2Microwave chocolate and butter in large microwaveable bowl for 90 seconds or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Stir in sugars. Stir in eggs and vanilla. If adding espresso or coffee, add it now; batter will be a bit granular and that’s okay. Stir in flour until just combined, do not over mix. Pour into prepared pan.
3Add the Nutella to the top of the brownie mixture and either just leave it sit on top or marble it with a knife in a zig-zag pattern.
4Bake for 25 to 28 minutes, or until edges pull away from the side of the pan and top and center have just set. Keep these gooey and don’t over bake; brownies will continue to firm up as they cool.
