Easy Nutella Brownie Recipe – Fudgey and Chewy!

If you are looking for delicious brownies from scratch then this Nutella Brownie recipe is for you! Simple to make with just a few ingredients, these brownies will become a favorite quickly.

I am gonna just start by saying that these Nutella Brownies are the BEST brownies you will ever make!!! And I do not say that lightly friends. As you know I am a major chocoholic and brownies may as well be listed as a food group for me. I mean take my Chocolate Peanut Butter Bundt Cake as an example of my extreme chocolate obsession!

This recipe was adapted from my friend at Aileen Cooks during a monthly recipe swap we were doing and as soon as I saw her Nutella Brownies I was done…heart stopped, drool running down my face, done. I mean can you blame me…look at how they turned out!! I love the little pockets of chocolate chips mixed with the hazelnut goodness of the Nutella.

Nutella is for more than toast

I don’t know about you, but until I became an adult Nutella wasn’t something I had on the regular – it was honestly a decadent treat growing up in a single parent household!

I remember slathering it on my toast when we did have it, topped with some crunchy peanut butter of course – boy did I not know the possibilities that jar of hazelnut chocolate goodness had (haha).

These brownies were one of my first baking attempts with Nutella, and since then I have only expanded on treats to make with it like our Irresistible Nutella Biscotti and Nutella Twist Bread.

Just looking at that plate of goodness makes me want more…sadly we brought them all to a dinner party with friends and they were DEVOURED which meant no leftovers for us! But hey that’s okay, just means I get to make another batch…just for me…for me and my hubby of course!

How to make brownies from scratch

Believe it or not, making brownies from scratch is actually really easy! You want to first combine your wet ingredients; in this case the Nutella with eggs and vanilla, and then in a separate bowl sift your dry ingredients together. Once these two steps are finished you combine them together and only mix until you can no longer see the dry ingredients. You DO NOT want to over mix a brownie batter!

How to cook Nutella brownies

Once your batter is prepared you’ll want to get them in the oven to bake so you can enjoy them sooner! To bake brownies from scratch you need to start with preparing your pan; always grease the pan you are using so the brownies don’t stick, then you will place the brownies in your preheated oven for the set amount of time as outlined in your recipe. Keep an eye on them during baking time and remove them when a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean (minus any gooey goodness from add ins like chocolate chips/Nutella).

Should I refrigerate brownies

Putting brownies in the fridge is not necessary – especially with how quickly these easy Nutella brownies will be devoured! That being said, you still want to keep them covered or in a sealed container to maintain their freshness.

Does it make a big difference if the choco chips are omitted from the recipe? Just wondering. Thank you.

Hi Raelene! Not at all, they are added for extra chocolate flavor as well as some texture - you can definitely make these brownies without them and still have a tasty treat.
