  19. Brownies alone are soooooo good and then you added that beautiful frosting that is dripping off the brownie and there's Nutella as one of the ingredients and coffee...either of which would take this brownie to a new level of deliciousness all on its own. I can only imagine how amazing these must taste. Gorgeous brownies!

  20. My willpower would dissolve around these.
