This delicious Nutella® brownie recipe is a quick and easy way to prepare unique, sweet treats for your family! Starting with two eggs and one cup of granulated sugar, beat them together with a hand mixer until the mixture becomes light and fluffy. Make sure to add the Nutella® at the end, as this will provide the brownies with a sweet, nutty flavor. Once the mixture is ready, gradually fold in 1 and 3/4 cups of all-purpose flour, ensuring that any larger lumps are sifted away. Then, add one cup and two tablespoons of Nutella® until the batter is completely uniform.


  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 1/4 cup hazelnut liqueur (such as Frangelico®)

  • 1/4 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread (such as Nutella®), or more to taste

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 2/3 cup white sugar

  • 1/3 cup brown sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch square baking pan or line with parchment paper.
  • Melt butter, hazelnut liqueur, and chocolate-hazelnut spread together in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until starting to bubble, about 5 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and cool slightly.
  • Whisk flour, cocoa powder, and salt together in a bowl.
  • Beat white sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract together in a large bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy; slowly mix in butter mixture until smooth. Stir flour mixture into butter-sugar mixture just until batter is combined; fold in chocolate chips, if using. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until the top is dry and the edges have started to pull away from the sides of the pan, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool brownies in pan for at least 2 hours before cutting.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do I make sure my brownies don’t become too sweet? A: When adding the Nutella®, be sure to incorporate it into the mixture only once it is nearly creamy. This will help to balance out the sweetness of the Nutella® with the other ingredients in the recipe.

Q: Can I use a different type of flour in this recipe? A: Yes, but it will result in a completely different texture. All-purpose flour helps to give the brownies a soft and gooey interior. If you choose to use a different type of flour, such as whole wheat, the texture may be more dense and cake-like.

Q: How can I tell when the brownies are done baking? A: The best way to check that your brownies are finished baking is to stick a toothpick or cake tester into the middle. If it comes out clean, your brownies are finished. If not, return them to the oven for a couple of minutes.

This recipe is perfect for gathering the family around the kitchen table for a tasty sweet treat. With the Nutella® lending its unique flavor and texture, these brownies are sure to be a hit!
