Nutella Brownies

Nutella Brownies

Weather: 40 degrees, snow still melting
What I’m listening to: Be Ok, Ingrid Michaelson

When dinner was finished, and I was standing at the sink washing dishes, my nine-year-old son walked into the kitchen. He opened the pantry door, grabbed the Nutella, turned to me and asked, “Mom, can I make dessert tonight?”

“What are you going to make with that?” I asked him, curiously eyeing the Nutella in his hand.

“I don’t know,” he answered, waiting with a grin on his face…

Thinking quickly, soapy hands and all, I responded, “I have an idea.” Nutella Brownies.

My oldest son eagerly bustled around the kitchen gathering the ingredients and putting them into the bowl of the stand mixer.

When the pan came out of the oven, we had the most gorgeous, classic brownies – all crackly on top and fudgy in the center. They have a distinctive Nutella flavor without being too sweet. As they cool to room temperature, they transform from warm and gooey to wonderfully chewy. We were all very excited to dig in… but not without our cold glasses of milk.

So I have to say I'm not a big Nutella fan, but I had a jar of chocolate mocha hazlenut spread (I was curious about the taste and couldn't resist!) and I didn't know what to do with it....untill these brownies! They are soooooo good! My whole family and I loved them! The taste and texture was perfect! I will definitly be making these brownies again, thank you for this great recipe!!! I am loving your site, everything I have made so far has turned out wonderful and my family has loved every bite!!!!

Came out perfectly! I used another visitor's suggestion when I realized my straight-from-the-bottle habits had left me with only half a cup of nutella, so I substituted half a cup of creamy peanut butter. Then drizzled salted caramel on top. Came out fantastic, but next time I think I'd use a little less flour - I prefer my brownies fudgier.

Oh Wow!!! I just made these and they are awesome! So easy...so dangerous! Taking them to a church dinner and I have to say, if I wasn't obligated to bring them I would've eaten all the batter!

I made these today, and I only had about half a cup of nutella, so I added some peanut butter, and it was glorious. Thank you.

Waste of money. I made these as directed and they were so hard around the edges that a sharp knife could barely cut them and they were greasy in the middle. Had to throw the entire pan away. What a shame - Nutella isn't cheap these days.

I found this quite by accident and I plan on making these tonight. I do want to clarify what type of flour your using, AP or SR? My husband and son will love these!!

Sweet jesus, these are wonderful. Made them once last week and they lastet a few hours before all of them were gone. Today I looked at my giant Nutella ... well, you could say barrell (5kg) and I just couldn't resist so I had to make them again. ;) I'm not quite sure whether I used the right amount of Nutella, cause I live in Switzerland and so I had to calculate with gramm and stuff. But they came out just perfect. Thanks a lot for sharing!

I am going to give your recipe a try! Mine kind of flopped last night. Well, my son ate some right from the pan with a spoon, but I was looking for a "real" brownie look. Thanks!

Made this on Saturday and have to say the flavor is much better 24 hours later---it gives everything time to meld and sweeten and get the perfect consistency---crunchy corners, chewy centers and a very nice nutty fudgy flavor.  My hubby and I tasted these when they were warm and then later when they were cool and then the next day and really preferred the next day's the best.  At first I wasn't sure I would make them again but they grew on us after time!  Also, for those of you who buy your butter in bulk and the sticks don't always contain this info, 1/3 cup of butter is equal to 5 1/3 Tablespoons of butter.  Hope this helps!
