Nutella Brownies

Super fudgy Nutella brownies...these are so rich and full of chocolate!

Nutella Brownies #recipe Just as easy as a box mix, but so much fudgier and decadent! from

This Nutella Brownies  almost didn’t happen. But aren’t you glad they did?

They were a last minute, oh hey, chocolate sounds kinda good, let’s do our favorite brownie recipe. Then, as I was grabbing the flour from my cabinet, I bumped into the jar of Nutella and, well, I just went with it. Divine intervention, y’all. It’s a thing.

After seeing how decadent and fudgy they were, I busted out my macro lens. I usually shoot with a 50mm 1.4, but these were begging for my dusty ol’ macro that I never use and yet can’t seem to part with. I think it’s safe to say that the macro will be getting plenty of use after these photos. You can almost reach through the screen and stick your finger into the gooey chocolate, amirite?

Now, seriously, I’ll get around to a healthy recipe one of these days. Maybe even soon! It’s just that there are so many more treats and desserts that I feel like sharing first. You’re not complaining, are you?

Update: After receiving a couple of comments from those of you who have tried these, I wanted to clarify that the predominant flavor here is chocolate, not Nutella. The Nutella just gives these a burst of chocolate fudginess, but the hazelnut flavor is not super noticeable in these brownies. Plenty of you have commented something along the lines of “best brownies ever” so please do try these! I just don’t want to set you up for disappointment if you’re expecting a full on Nutella assault. :)

Update 2: A few of you have mentioned reducing the sugar. I haven’t tried that myself as these are the perfect sweetness for me. I don’t find them too sweet or too dark tasting and think they’re pretty perfect myself. However, if you’d like to try reducing the sugar, it sounds like people are getting away with 1 3/4 of a cup with no problem. Feel free to play around and see what you think, but do know the texture may not be quite the same.

Updated 3: The chocolate chips/baking melts in this recipe as are totally optional. They will add a bit of texture to your brownies. If you like nuts in your brownies, you will likely be a fan of the chocolate chips. If not, skip them entirely. :)

Nutella Brownies

These decadent brownies are full of Nutella, cocoa, and milk chocolate for a super fudgy treat! These are, dare I say, even better than the box mix brownies we all love!


1 cup (2 sticks) butter
2 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup Nutella
4 large eggs
1 1/4 cups cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon espresso powder, optional
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
10 ounce package Hershey's Milk Chocolate Baking Melts (or chocolate chips)


Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9x13 baking dish.
In small saucepan over low heat, melt butter completely. Stir in sugar and continue cooking for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. Do not allow sugar mixture to boil.
Remove from the heat and stir in the Nutella until well combined.
Pour butter mixture into a large bowl or stand mixer, beat in cocoa powder, eggs, salt, baking powder, espresso powder, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.
Stir in the flour and baking melts until just combined.
Spread into prepared pan (batter will be very thick and sticky) and bake for about 30-35 minutes, until a tester comes out mostly clean. The edges should be set and the center should still look slightly moist, but not uncooked. Cool on a wire rack.

    I instantly ran to the store for the ingredients to this amazing recipe. I then followed the instructions exactly as written. I somehow messed up my brownies though because they are very thick and dry once out of the oven. I had to throw away the entire batch this morning. So disappointed and I wish I knew what needed fixing.

      Hi @Meredith!

      I’m so sorry to hear they didn’t turn out for you! It’s hard to say what went wrong since I wasn’t in the kitchen with you, but my guess is that either your oven temperature is off (do you have a thermometer in the oven to test it?) or they were overbaked. Every oven is different, so it’s important to test during baking since the time may vary for you.

      Hope you’ll try these again! They really are fabulous brownies!

    these brownies are amazing. I do recommend that if your using this recipe and don’t feel its enough nutella flavor you can always top with a nutella butter cream or frosting. and it adds that extra kick you might need but i think these are amazing just by them self.

    These are the best brownies ever! My fiancé and I ate the first batch and the second, I took to mum’s for dessert one Sunday. The ‘dessert’ batch quickly became an ‘oops-spoiled-everyone’s-dinner’ batch..
    Not that anyone was complaining! I do recommend adding the optional coffee, it aids the richness, without giving a distinct coffee flavour.

    These were DIVINE. I have to say, you can definitely taste the coffee. However, I liked that a lot! I used dark chocolate cocoa powder and it really kicked these brownies up a notch.

    My fiance is a big fan of the boxed brownies (something that isn’t easy to find once I moved to the UK) and usually my mom packs a few in a care package. But his birthday came sooner than another care package and my picky eater would devour a pan of brownies before he would even think about cake so I tried birthday brownies this year — two different batches. The first one came out bittersweet and he thought they were burnt but this recipe was perfect. It was a great replacement for the boxed brownies and made so much I can share them with the girls at work and he won’t get upset with me for taking away his sweets. Thanks so much for an amazing recipe! :)

    I tried these brownies, and as soon as I added the Nutella, the entire mixture seized up and would not mix. I do not know if I was supposed to let the butter cool completely or what, but I followed the recipe exactly and ended up with a lumpy, grainy mixture. That’s two sticks of butter down the drain. Will not try again.


    • Karly replied: — February 9th, 2014 @ 5:56 pm


      I’m sorry to hear that! I don’t cool the butter and sugar mixture before adding the Nutella. You do want to be sure not to allow the butter and sugar mixture to boil, though.


    • Cindy replied: — May 24th, 2014 @ 12:05 pm

      If you had lumps in the sugar, butter, Nutella mixture, a whisk would remove them…or you can let them melt in the brownies as they cook. Heating the mixture in the pan should also solve the problem. A wire whisk should remove lumps. Fyi. Hope this helps.

    I used 1/2 brown and 1/2 white sugar and added walnuts. I realized I only had 1/2 the cocoa powder too, but they turned out fine. except when I tried to get them out of the pan it wouldn’t hold together too well. tasted good though

    The brownies turned out good. I only used ~2 cups of sugar and it was too much sugar
    the nutella has a lot of sugar and so does chocolate so they turned out way too sweet

  21. katy April 14, 2014 @ 7:53 am (#

    Just made these and I have to say, they’re pretty awesome. As with most baked goods, they’re best right out of the oven, at their gooiest. Oh yes.

    I did not add the espresso powder, as I couldn’t find any in my grocery store. I can imagine it would make quite the difference in deepening the chocolate flavor, so it will be a priority next time. Without the espresso, they have a surprisingly clean finish (for a brownie). Let’s be frank, though — who doesn’t want that incredible chocolaty goodness to linger on the palate?

    My grocery store was also out of Nutella. Blasphemous, I know, but I found a container of Jif Salted Caramel Hazelnut Spread. It tastes very comparable to Nutella, albeit mildly salty, of course. I just added less salt to the recipe. Much like the recipe author states (regarding the addition of Nutella), the Jif Spread flavor is not particularly detectable, but without question, it added just the right amount of gooey and chocolaty goodness.

    Will try these again with Nutella and will absolutely make it a priority to include espresso powder. I have a hunch that’s what really puts these over the top.

    Thanks for the awesome recipe!


    • Karly replied: — April 14th, 2014 @ 9:32 am


      So glad to hear you enjoyed them!

      The espresso really does deepen the chocolate flavor, so definitely give it a try if you can find some! I can generally find it in a little jar with a green lid near the rest of the coffee. Can’t think of the brand, but it’s pretty popular and widely available. :)

    Delectable! Love these and so did the people I made them for. Gone is seconds! I am not a coffee drinker, but I did add dark French roast Teeccino (a “herbal coffee” substitute made with roasted Ramon nuts) in place of the espresso. It intensified the flavor as espresso would. Yum!


  24. Elizabeth April 16, 2014 @ 6:28 pm (#

    So I decided to try these because they looked AMAZING! Well I cooked them for 35 minutes on 350, let them cool for 20 minutes on a wire rack, and cut into them only to find out that they were way too gooey and seemed very undercooked, in a way. So I put them back in the oven for an additional 5 minutes, they were even more gooey. So another five minutes and EVEN MORE GOOEY. So I’m throwing the whole batch out. I followed the recipe to a T and the butter/sugar mixture didn’t boil. The only thing that I can think of that may have to led to such a disaster is that I had had the oven preheating while I was melting the butter, and after I had stirred the sugar for two minutes, I put the saucepan on another burner instead of the countertop while I measured the Nutella to put into the butter/sugar mixture. Do you think that could have caused such a mess? After I added the rest of the ingredients, the batter looked perfectly fine. I’ve made brownies from scratch before without any problem whatsoever. I don’t know what caused such a disaster this time, but I’m really disappointed!


    • Karly replied: — April 16th, 2014 @ 6:35 pm

      Hi @Elizabeth,

      Sorry you had problems with this one! I don’t think the problem would be from the sugar.

      After returning them to the oven for 5 minutes, did you let them cool again before checking them or were you checking them straight from the oven? I know you let them cool the first time, but what about subsequent times?


      • Elizabeth replied: — April 16th, 2014 @ 6:39 pm

        @Karly, No, I didn’t let them cool again. I’ll try letting them cool for another twenty minutes. Hopefully they’ll turn out good. When I checked them straight from the oven, they were SUPER gooey. I mean I’m all for fudgy brownies, but not when they’re so gooey they fall apart when you take a bite.


        • Cindy replied: — May 24th, 2014 @ 11:20 am

          NEVER toss in the trash can! Use the gooey goodness as a topping for ice-cream! YUMMY!


  25. Elizabeth April 16, 2014 @ 6:30 pm (#

    I just want to clarify, the other burner WAS NOT on but maybe the heat from the oven rising up caused something to happen to the butter/sugar mixture while it was sitting on the stove for a couple of minutes while I measured the nutella?

    • Karly replied: — April 25th, 2014 @ 10:08 am

      Hi @janna,

      I guess that depends on what you’re using the baking bar to replace. If you want to replace the cocoa powder, no, that won’t work. If you’d like to replace the baking melts or chocolate chips, yes, just chop it up and mix them in at the end.


      • Janna replied: — April 25th, 2014 @ 7:16 pm

    I saw these on Pinterest and thought, “omg these look AMAZINGGGGGG! I have to make these.” So I did. Or at least, I attempted. Now, I have a default brownie recipe I make fairly often and they’re pretty damn good, but I figured the addition of Nutella would only make them better! I was very wrong… These were way too dense and thin at the same time, extremely oily, took forever to bake (they were still raw after 35 minutes). And the flavor just wasn’t there…. I WANTED to like these, I really did. But I was really disappointed. I’m really glad so many others had good experiences with this recipe but sadly I didn’t. I’m just gonna be sticking to my normal brownie recipe from now on.

    Please note: I didn’t make my normal recipe and just add Nutella, I followed this recipe to the T. Oh well.


    • Karly replied: — December 1st, 2014 @ 1:52 pm

      Sorry to hear that this wasn’t a hit for you! I’m not sure what could have gone wrong as this recipe normally produces thick and fudgy brownies. Sorry you had issues!


  40. Cynthia December 8, 2014 @ 3:52 am (#

    These brownies are very good but I would suggest tweaking the recipe itself. For instance, you say to add the chocolate chips to the batter at the very end, and I followed the recipe exactly according to your directives, in order, but this seems unwise. The brownies end up not being completely tender because the chocolate chips don’t have time to fully melt in 30 minutes. Also, it seems as if they could easily be either omitted or simply replaced with more cocoa powder if what you want is an even more chocolatey taste. In short, the chocolate chips add nothing to the texture of this brownie.

    Another thing of note is that there seems to be no logical order to your ingredient incorporation. For instance, why are we not melting the chocolate chips along with the butter? Why are the dry ingredients incorporated later and one at a time instead of being sifted all together first and then added to the mix? I am no expert baker, but having followed a number of cookie and brownie recipes, I can tell you that the sifting at least makes for a less lumpy and thinner batter.

    A few final thoughts: people I served these brownies to all liked them well enough, especially in terms of the texture, but they all agreed that the taste was a little too sweet and that even just one brownie makes for a quite heavy snack. This of course is obvious because of the abundance of ingredients, but I’ve been told that putting less sugar (and in this case I used barely under 2 cups because your quantity was too much for me) would not affect the texture of the brownie.

    As you mentioned, the batter is very thick and sticky. This makes it hard to spread and nearly impossible to spread evenly. Not to mention that with the baking dish size that you mention, I have no idea how you ended up with thin brownies. I would suggest that anyone who wants to achieve this thinness use a larger baking dish, and if they want the batter to be spread evenly, to do it with your hands using water so that the batter does not stick to them as much. This is the only way I can think of to budge this batter once it is in the dish because trying to settle it by banging the dish lightly on the counter does not move it at all.

    Since these are very tender, it would be a good idea to recommend to people to store them with a slice of bread so that they main remain moist and tender over several days.

    Overall, this was a really delicious recipe but it was a difficult batter to work with. I would highly recommend reorganizing this recipe and testing out a few things to see if the batter may become any more manageable.


    • Karly replied: — December 8th, 2014 @ 10:24 am

      Hi Cynthia! Thanks for your thoughts.

      Adding the chocolate chips at the end does add a bit of texture to the brownie. Some people prefer this. You can use baking melts (as mentioned) instead and they tend to melt in and disappear a bit more. You could also leave them out completely.

      We’re not melting the chocolate chips with the butter because the little bites of chocolate chips was the desired outcome. The reason I incorporate all the other dry ingredients before the flour is to not overmix with the flour. The less you mix, the less tough your brownies will be.

      You can certainly reduce sugar to your preference, though to what amount I don’t know. I like them the way they are.

      As for the batter, yes, I mentioned it’s thick and sticky, but I used a rubber spatula and had no problem spreading it out. I’m not sure why you had such a hard time, but I’m sorry.

      I store these in the pan covered in foil with no issues. I’ve never stored brownies with bread before.

      As for the thickness, I’m not sure why you thick my brownies are thin? They’re at least an inch thick in the photos.

      Thanks for your thoughts!


      • Cynthia replied: — December 9th, 2014 @ 12:08 am

        Hi! Thanks fhe quick reply!

        The pictures actually make these brownies look very moist and tender, and you can’t really discern the chocolate chips (or baking melts) at all. I didn’t dislike the half-melted chocolate chip texture myself btw, I just wondered if they brownies weren’t supposed to be more tender.

        I’m used to a darker chocolate variety of brownies. I liked these, but the amount of sugar felt a little excessive given how much chocolate there already is (ie nutella, cocoa and chocolate chips). That’s good to know about the flour. Tbh I did not know that at all.

        Well, the batter is hard to even out all over the baking dish, and it’s especially hard to fill the corners as evenly as the rest as the dish. Since you can’t settle it by banging it on the counter, it makes it tougher to do by eye alone.

        The bread thing is a tip I’ve heard often and tested myself. Your brownies will absorb the bread’s moisture and remain tender. At the end your bread will more or less have the texture of lightly toasted bread. I recommend trying it out.

        Btw, out of curiosity, have you ever tried making a white chocolate brownie? I’m a big fan of white chocolate but the thought never occurred to me til just now.


        • Karly replied: — December 9th, 2014 @ 9:35 am

          Hi Cynthia!

          It’s actually totally possible that I left the chocolate chips out of that batch that I photographed. I usually do add them in, but you’re right…I don’t see them either. I’m going to update the recipe to include notes on that. Either way, if you try them again, feel free to leave out the chips if you want. It won’t hurt the recipe at all.

          I’ve done the bread thing with cookies, just never with brownies. Seems like a good idea!

          I haven’t even made a white chocolate brownie. I’m not a huge white chocolate fan myself, but it’s an interesting idea! I might try that!


  41. Cynthia December 12, 2014 @ 6:37 pm (#

    Hi Karly!

    About the bread thing, I never used to do it with cookies til I read the tip on one blog’s recipe that I was trying. Then I thought if it works for cookies, why not brownies? It’s essentially nearly the same texture and most of the same ingredients, so I Googled it and someone did in fact have a tip about storing brownies with bread.

    I think with white chocolate, the main thing is that if you find it too sweet on its own, you can add things to it. A cookie recipe I tried had a regular dough but used white chocolate chips with cranberries. It was pretty good. Most of my family still would have preferred dark chocolate chips though.

    Also, I don’t know if you’ve ever watched Ricardo’s cooking show? The one recipe he had that I really loved was for these cranberry lime bars. We don’t really do much other than cakes at our house so I wanted to try it, and it was really delicious! So far I haven’t yet tried lemon bars to see if I’d like them too, but generally I love cheesecakes with citrusy flavors like lemon and lime, so it should be good. Generally speaking, even cake-wise, I am not really big on chocolate-only desserts like chocolate cake. I love chocolate but I prefer it outside of pastries. Chocolate-chip cookies and brownies are a big exception.

    This is Ricardo’s lime bars btw:

    Mine really don’t end up looking quite this neat, and I end up with a slightly darker color of curd too.

    I love, love, love these brownies!!! Not only me, my husband said it’s an excellent brownies, it made me delete some of the brownie files I have that I’m not really happy with. This will be my go to recipe from now on.

    By the way, when I baked this, I didn’t really read the instructions step by step but it turned out excellent! After I melted the butter in the microvave, I took it out and added the sugar and Nutella I just stirred it to combine, I didn’t even put it back in the microwave. At first I thought the sugar won’t melt while baking, but it did. For us, the sweetness was just right. I used Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chips, added 10 oz. to the batter and the rest in the bag, I sprinkled it on top.

    Thank you very much for an awesome recipe!

      Not sure what you could have done wrong, Lotta. Sounds like you needed to cook the sugar longer. If it wasn’t melting, you must not have had the heat up high enough or you didn’t cook it long enough. Better luck next time!

    I just made this tonight and I used brown sugar due to not having enough white granulated and I also only had 3 eggs so that’s all I used. I would have to say that this was too sweet. I will definitely cut the sugar way down when I make this recipe again. With that said this was extremely good! I would say this is the second best brownie recipe I have made, and I have made quite a few. Instead of using chocolate chips I used walnuts and I’m glad I did because chocolate chips would have made this close to inedible due to the sweetness. I made this in one pan because I am a fan of no extra cleanup. I melted the butter then added from there, mixing everything in the same non-stick pan then poured into the 9×13. The cleanup from the pan was literally effortless. Thank you for this recipe!!!

    OH. MY. GOD. There really needs to be a disclaimer on this to have at least a gallon of milk nearby if you’re planning on making these brownies because YOU ARE GOING TO NEED IT. Seriously holy crap I made these tonight and they are SO RICH AND FUDGY AND AMAZING.

    A few things:

    1. I used about 2 cups of sugar and I definitely didn’t think it was too sweet at all, even if you added the full amount called for.

    2. I didn’t have espresso powder so I used about a teaspoon and a half of instant coffee and it seems to have done the trick! They came out with such a rich chocolatey flavor that wouldn’t have been as intense without the coffee.

    3. I took mine out at just under 30 minutes (my oven is notoriously fast) and let them cool for about an hour and they turned out great. They even appear to be a little more done that in the photos but they are STICK TO EVERY SURFACE IN YOUR MOUTH FUDGEY AND GOOEY.

    4. Instead of the baking melts I used a combo of half milk/half 60% dark chocolate Ghirardelli chips and I think it was a good move.


    P.S. I wanted to leave a comment even before I cooked them because the batter was so delicious and I wanted to share it with the world.
