Raise your hand if you used to eat Nutella straight out of the jar with a spoon! I knew I wasn’t the only one! And if you’re obsessed with Nutella or all things chocolate hazelnut, you will adore these Nutella brownies. They’re super fudgy with a crackly top and they have a whole jar  (You heard me! A WHOLE jar of Nutella) in them.

Basically I think they’re perfect. And I hope you’ll agree with me.

What are Nutella brownies?

Let’s face it I’m obsessed with brownies. And these ones are up there with the best I’ve ever had. 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! The flavors really settle into a rich, fudgy, hazelnut nuance flavor that is simply irresistible.  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..

Tips for the best Nutella brownies

I love brownies because they’re one of the easiest desserts to whip up at home. They’re made in one bowl with simple ingredients and taste worth of a bakery. And luckily for you I’ve made millions of brownies in my life time (okay, not really–but it’s up there!), so I have alllll the tips and tricks you need to produce perfectly fudgy brownies.

  • Beat the eggs and the butter and sugar for a long time: This will give you that signature crackly topped brownie look! I usually make these by hand and recommend beating the eggs, sugar and butter together until light and foamy–usually just as your arm is starting to get sore 🙂
  • Use high quality cocoa powder: The Nutella provides most of the chocolate-y flavor to these brownies, but you’ll also need some cocoa powder to keep them fudgy and decadent! We recommend a high quality Dutch processed cocoa–we love Rodelle!
  • Under bake them: The key to fudgy brownies is under baking them ever-so-slightly! Remember the brownies will continue to cook as they cool so it’s okay if they’re a little gooey in the middle when you take them out!
  • Go big or go home on the Nutella swirl: We’re not here to play around. If you’re going to eat 2/3 of a jar of Nutella you might as well eat the rest of it swirled in thick ribbons in your brownies. Duh.

Units:
Scale:

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 2/3 cup Nutella + about 1/3 cup for swirling
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup Dutch process cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and line a 8 x 8″ pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine butter and sugar. Microwave for 30 seconds, then remove and stir with a whisk. Repeat process 2 more times. Though granules of sugar will remain, the goal is to get the mixture to a glossy finish.
  3. Allow mixture to cool slightly, then add in eggs one at a time, whisking in between each addition. Whisk until the mixture lightens in color slightly, about 2 minutes.
  4. Add in the 2/3 cup Nutella and vanilla extract and mix well.
  5. Add the cocoa powder, flour, and salt. Fold in flour until just combined.
  6. Pour mixture into prepared baking pan, using a rubber spatula to spread the batter out evenly. Drop the remaining 1/3 cup (the rest of the jar if you’re using a small jar of Nutella) by the Tablespoon on top of the brownies. I like to do this like a 5 pattern on dice. Use a butter knife to make big swirls throughout the brownies. Don’t over swirl–you want big ribbons of Nutella!
  7. Bake for roughly 30 minutes, testing for doneness by inserting a knife into the center of the brownies. You’ll know they’re done when the edge is set, but a knife inserted into the middle still comes out with a bit of brownie batter on it.
  8. Allow to cool before slicing into 9 huge brownies or 16 regular size brownies. Enjoy!

  1. These were incredible! Used trader
    Joes gluten free flour and otherwise followed the recipe exactly, and they were perfection.

  2. I had made these after watching a video on Instagram and I’m so glad I did they where gone after two days when I told my husband I had made them definitely will be making them again for thanksgiving.

  3. Made a double batch and got rave reviews from friends and coworkers, even my manager who had his own bakery in his home country. I used slightly less Nutella overall since I didn’t have enough and I used 9×9 pans for thinner brownies. Everyone loved the smaller squares. These brownies hit the spot!!

  4. I saw the tiktok and I knew I needed to bake these. They were a hit. My neighbors loved it, and I couldn’t wait for them to cook down. As soon as they came out of the oven I ate some. 10/10
