Two brownies stacked on a paper napkin.

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 butter 2 sticks
  • 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 ounces chocolate chips, optional


  • 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 chocolate chips 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 before slicing and serving. Store tightly covered for 3-5 days.


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