Let’s face it I’m obsessed with brownies. And these ones are up there with the best I’ve ever had. Better than my Plumb good brownies. Yup, better. They’ve got a crispy crunchy top and are super gooey inside. I hadn’t previously been a fan of crispy tops, but I think I’ve been turned. I would go as far to say that they are even better on the second day! Really I just plan on using this brownie batter base for everything in the future, and substituting nutella for swirls of peanut butter, cream cheese, you name it. My one mistake was that I only made a half batch. Don’t do it, you’ll be disappointed. If anything make a double batch. Or triple…

Nutella brownies

Thick fudgy brownies with huge ribbons of nutella for double the chocolate.



for the brownies:
  • 4 squares Bakers unsweetened chocolate
    3/4 cup butter or margarine
    2 cups sugar
    3 eggs
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1 cup flour

for the swirl

  • 1/2 cup Nutella


  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Line 13×9-inch pan with parchment paper, with ends of parchment paper extending over sides. Spray with cooking spray.
  3. Microwave chocolate and butter in large microwaveable bowl on high for 2 minutes or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Stir in sugar. Blend in eggs and vanilla. Add flour; mix well. Pour into prepared pan.
  4. Spoon tablespoon-sized dollops of Nutella over the brownie batter. Using a knife, swirl the Nutella around until it is just incorporated.
  5. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely. Use parchment paper handles to remove brownies from pan before cutting to serve.

they look divine!!! what do you mean by 4 squares of chocolate though? Approx how much would that be in grams? Sorry, maybe I’m being thick but I’m in france and have never heard of 4 “squares” 😀

These look so delicious! I love nutella and brownies…what a perfect combination 🙂 Now off to try nutella and cream cheese swirl brownies!

And Annie, I would guess that a square is 1 ounce of chocolate.

movita beaucoup

I think I need to eat these. NOW. (I’ve just found you on foodgawker. How have I lived without you this long?)


I always love that cracked crust on a brownie… yours look just perfect!

Annie– Amilia is right, one square is one ounce of chocolate. So the recipe calls for 4 ounces of chocolate. Happy baking!


thanks 🙂 It’ll indeed be a happy baking session hehe. Hopefully I won’t eat all the mix before it goes in the oven!


I finally made these and although they were a little too sweet for my palate, all my guests loved them and requested I make more 🙂


These are the best brownies I have ever made. My friends raved about them! Thanks!
