Let’s talk date nights in. Aren’t they less stressful than getting ready and heading out somewhere on a Friday night after a full week of work?

Maybe that’s because I’m typing this on a Friday night after an exhausting work week. But, I think we all agree, sometimes it’s more relaxing and romantic to make dinner at home for a cozy evening.

If you stir together a quick batch of these Nutella Brownies for Two, you just might have the perfect date night at home.

Our favorite meals to cook for each other are simple, less than an hour of prep from start to finish, but we still want them to feel special. When I’m feeling fancy, I light the candles and use our fancy china too.

The key here is to avoid spending hours in the kitchen – that will quickly take the fun right out of a date night at home!
