Nutella Brownies have a fudgy center, crackly top, and Nutella swirled throughout. They’re a chocolate lovers’ dream.  These brownies are delicious as an afternoon treat, hostess gift, or even for transforming into brownie a la mode



  • 113 g (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
  • 226 g (8 oz) semi-sweet chocolate bar, chopped
  • 225 g (3/4 cup) Nutella, divided
  • 110 g (1/2 cup) brown sugar
  • 110 g (1/2 cup) granulated sugar
  • 150 g (3 large) eggs
  • 7 g (2 teaspoons) pure vanilla extract
  • 95 (2/3 cup) all-purpose flour
  • 30 g (3 tablespoons) cocoa powder
  • 2.8 g (1/2 teaspoon) salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F/177°C. Line a 9×9-inch baking pan with parchment paper so that it hangs over the sides.  Set aside.
  2. Place the butter and chopped chocolate into a medium heatproof bowl set over a small saucepan filled with an inch of simmering water.  Whisk until the mixture is completely melted and smooth.  Remove bowl from heat and add 150 g (1/2 cup) Nutella to the mixture whisking until smooth.  Add the brown and granulated sugars whisking vigorously until combined.  Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla to the chocolate mixture.  Whisk until well combined, about 1 minute.
  4. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt until just combined.  Do not overmix.
  5. Pour the brownie batter into the prepared pan and smooth.  Drop teaspoons full of the remaining Nutella across the top of the brownies and swirl with a knife.  Bake in the preheated oven for 23 to 28 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean with some moist crumbs.  Allow the brownies to completely cool in pan before slicing


Make-Ahead: You can freeze brownies for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and bring to room temperature before serving.
