I LOVE Nutella! I regularly eat it with a spoon from the jar. That way the jar is MY jar because, well, I’ve eaten from it. Jordan loves it too; she’s always begging for those little packets with pretzels you get at the checkout counter. These easy Nutella brownies were right up both our alleys.

BEST Nutella Brownies EVER!

These are the BEST NUTELLA BROWNIES EVER – one bowl, no mixer, just TONS of chocolate. They’re so fudgy and rich they are the PERFECT Nutella brownie recipe! 

I married my favorite melted chocolate brownie recipe with Nutella to create this one bowl EASY fudgy nutella brownies recipe. It’s got tons of melted chocolate, chocolate chips, AND Nutella inside. It’s chocolate to the extreme and then you add all the other amazing ingredients like butter and sugar and, well, this is brownie heaven. 

I love to serve these fudgy warm brownies with a scoop of cold ice cream for the ultimate comforting treat. Plus, you can make a large batch of these brownies to save them for up to 2 months in the freezer!

Ingredients Needed

Mix these few ingredients into one bowl to bake the best fudgy Nutella brownies. You don’t even need a mixer for this nutella brownie recipe. 

  • Baking chocolate: unsweetened to control the sweetness
  • Butter: unsalted at room temperature
  • Sugar: I use granulated sugar 
  • Eggs: I always use large eggs
  • Vanilla extract: always use pure vanilla extract
  • Salt: since we used unsalted butter, the salt adds flavor too
  • Flour: be sure to measure the all purpose flour right to get the best fudgy brownie
  • Nutella: or other chocolate spread
  • Chocolate chips: to add some texture and of course, more chocolate

Tips

  • Do you like your brownies extra gooey? Take these fudgy nutella brownies out of the oven by the 20 minute mark to get that chewy, chocolatey texture you will love. 
  • This Nutella brownie recipe is done baking when they just lose their glossy sheen on top and a toothpick inserted comes out with a few crumbs 1-inch from the edge of the pan.
  • Always use a metal pan for brownies – it will conduct the heat better and make sure they’re cooked all the way.
  • Want even MORE chocolate flavor? Add 1 tablespoon of Dutch process cocoa powder. 

FAQs

What makes a brownie more fudgy?

Add more Nutella for an extra chewy, moist texture. 

What is the secret to moist brownies?

Underbaking! Try the toothpick test: when a toothpick inserted 1-inch from the edge of the pan comes out with a few moist crumbs, then your Nutella brownies will be extra chewy and moist. 

Can you freeze nutella brownies?

Yes! Store the Nutella brownies in an airtight container and freeze for up to 2 months.
