Nutella Brownies

What are Nutella Brownies?

Happiness is when you have perfectly baked brownies to treat yourself. These sweet chocolate squares are a ultimate hit. You serve them, eat them and you keep talking about it and of course you wanna put it up on your blog!!!

Initially, I decided to bake normal chocolate brownies but, when you’re at your best…you don’t mind getting a bit more sinful, so I quickly grabbed the nutella jar to top it over these beauties. There’s absolutely no excuse when you have brownies with a perfect crackly top, fudgy from inside with the swirl of Nutella!!!

For all chocolate lovers, these are the brownies you need at the top of your list.

Nutella Brownies


  • 120 grams butter
  • 200 grams semi sweet dark chocolate (chopped into small pieces)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated or icing sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence or 1/2 tsp vanilla powder
  • 1/2 cup maida/all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • Pinch of salt

Nutella Topping:

  • 200 grams nutella
  • 1 tbsp maida/all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar (adjust according to your sweetness)


  • Line the parchment paper on a greased baking tray and keep it aside.
  • Mix all ingredients for nutella topping in a bowl keep it aside.
  • Add butter and chocolate in a bowl, and microwave it making sure to remove and stir every twenty seconds. Repeat this step till ninety seconds or until chocolate starts to melt.
  • Remove from the microwave and keep stirring till the chocolate melts completely.
  • In another bowl, whisk together sugar(I have used icing sugar), brown sugar and one egg at a time until it gets creamy. I have used hand whisk which is completely fine.
  • Now add salt, vanilla essence (I have added vanilla powder) and the chocolate mixture and gently mix till well incorporated.
  • Now add sifted flour and cocoa powder and gently fold the batter making sure there are no lumps.
  • Pour the batter in the baking tray and gently spread it evenly. Tap it two three times so that no bubbles remain.

Please note: I have used icing sugar and vanilla powder for this recipe.

There is no particular way to know if your brownie is done. Whether you make a fudgy, cakey or gooey brownie your toothpick will not come out completely clean.

If you’re making a fudgy brownie the tooth pick with have bits of dry crumbles on it.
