Nutella Brownies Recipe

These Nutella brownies are my new favorite—chewy outside and fudgy inside! Even better, they only require eight ingredients.

– ½ cup (115 grams) unsalted butter (sliced into tablespoon-sized pieces) – 4 ounces (113 grams) semi-sweet chocolate (chopped) – ¾ cup (150 grams) granulated sugar – ¾ cup (225 grams) Nutella (divided) – 2 large eggs (room temperature) – 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract – ¾ cup (95 grams) all-purpose flour (spooned & leveled) – ¼ teaspoon salt



Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Give an 8-inch square baking pan an overhang of aluminum foil for easy removal. Set aside the foil after spraying it with nonstick cooking spray.


Mix sliced butter and chopped semi-sweet chocolate in a large microwave-safe bowl. After each 30-second microwave increment, carefully stir the mixture until smooth and melted.


Mix granulated sugar completely, then add ½ cup (150 grams) Nutella and mix thoroughly. Add eggs and pure vanilla essence and stir well. Stir in flour and salt until barely mixed.


Spread the batter evenly in the baking pan. Add the remaining ¼ cup (75 grams) Nutella to a small microwave-safe bowl. Stir for 10–15 seconds in microwave until smooth.


Knife-mix 9 spoonfuls of Nutella into brownie batter. Bake brownies until the top is set and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 32–38 minutes.


Let the pan cool completely after removing from the oven. Use the foil overhang to pull the bars from the pan and slice.
