Nutella Brownies

by kitchenarian on January 26, 2012

I have Nutella on the brain.  I can’t seem to get it off my mind.

For months and months I have been buying Nutella with the intention of baking something utterly delicious, but it just disappears too quickly. We spread it on English muffins, we use it in sandwiches with peanut butter, and it is our favorite crepe ingredient. But if I am going to be really honest here, then I have to admit that sometimes the spoon just seems to find its way in the jar and before you know it, the whole jar is gone! Do you have that problem too? Well, if you can manage to save 3/4 cup of Nutella, then you can make these deliciously decadent brownies.

World Nutella Day is celebrated on February 5th, so make these brownies and get ready to celebrate! This recipe is adapted from one I saw over at Mother Thyme.


1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup Nutella
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
½ cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8×8 pan and set aside. Cream together the sugar and butter. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add the salt, cinnamon, cocoa powder, and Nutella. Fold in the flour and the chocolate chips; combine all the ingredients. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool completely in pan and then slice and serve.

Kitchenarian Notes: These brownies are very fudgy.  You can add another 1/4 cup of flour if you like your brownies more cake-like.

Oh, nutella, fattening mistress of mine. How I pine for thee.
This looks beyond delicious. Mmmmm. Molten center, cracked top. Perfect!

Nutella is way too good to just sit around in the cabinet. I love the stuff. Great way to be prepared before the 5th. These look really yummy. The gooey kind of brownies are my fave!

There’s NOTHING else to say except… NOM. I am JONESING for some Nutella! Just 4 more days of my vegan cleanse. I think I know EXACTLY what I’ll be baking first :D. And thanks for the heads up re: World Nutella Day!

Yum. Nutella in a brownie? These look fantastic!

These look so decadent! I like my brownies fudgy…won’t be adding additional flour to this! I think I’d like them just as they are! Thanks!

I applaud you harnessing this food fixation into such a wonderful dessert! So often with something like this on the brain one eats everything BUT the food they crave and then loops back to finally devour it. You’ve elevated it into a higher form and shared it too; thank you!


Meghan January 28, 2012 at 1:10 pm

I have the same problem with the spoon and the nutella jar! I can tell from the photos that these are beyond decadent! They look fantastic!


Kim Bee January 28, 2012 at 8:22 pm

I just tried Nutella for the first time last year. I was so floored. I had no idea what I had been missing. I need to give these beauties a whirl. I could go for a brownie right about now. It will wash down all the cherry hershey kisses I’ve been scarfing all day long. Congrats on top 9!


Daisy@Nevertoosweet January 30, 2012 at 2:30 am

I HEART nutella! Anything with nutella is my best friend 🙂 Can’t wait to try this recipe! Thanks for sharing!


Kristine January 30, 2012 at 4:18 pm

I’ve just made these and haven’t taken them out of the oven yet but had to go ahead and comment because the batter is DELICIOUS! Really! I’m making them for a friend but I’m just gonna have to go ahead and save a couple for myself, haha. Thanks for the awesome recipe! I’ll definitely be making them again! 🙂
