Now that there’s a chill in the air, it’s the perfect time for this decadent dessert. 

Debi Morgan, the creator of the Southern food blog Quiche My Grits, shared her recipe for “Nutella Cheesecake Brownies” with Fox News. 

The dessert starts with a brownie crust, topped with cheesecake and a Nutella swirl, which Morgan describes as “dangerously YUM” in her blog post.

She also notes that, because the brownies have a cheesecake topping, they have to be stored in the refrigerator. Thankfully, as they sit in the fridge, they “become more chewy and moist,” which is a good thing, Morgan says. 

To try it yourself, here’s the “Nutella Cheesecake Brownies” recipe from Quiche My Grits.
