Nutella Brownies

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

These 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.

Can you handle the rich fudginess of these Nutella Brownies?

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?

This Nutella brownie recipe makes super thick and fudgy brownies!

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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:ย 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

Recipe Notes

The espresso powder does not give these a 'coffee' flavor. It just adds to the richness and deepness of the chocolate.
