Nutella Brownies

I have decided to do away with my dessert of the month page. It just seems criminal to only share one dessert per month. As a result of this decision, I will be reposting some of the desserts that have previously been posted on that page. This is the first, and by far the most popular, of my former Desserts of the Month. I will be adding some of the other desserts here in the near future.

This dessert is something I knew my wife would like, and was inspired by watching the Food Network. I call it simply Nutella Brownies. Nutella is a wonderful chocolate and hazelnut spread that is almost the consistency of peanut butter, and can be found in the peanut butter section of the grocery store. It is extremely rich, so a little goes a long way.

My brownies start as a basic batch of brownies, but are then iced with Nutella and sprinkled with chopped hazelnuts and mini chocolate chips. I even like to stir some hazelnuts into the brownie batter prior to baking. These brownies are very rich, so serve with a glass of milk and enjoy.

Nutella Brownies

1 7x11 pan brownies (made from scratch or boxed mix)
1 jar Nutella
2/3 cup chopped hazelnuts
2/3 cup mini chocolate chips

Bake brownies according to recipe directions.  If desired, stir 1/2 cup chopped hazelnuts into batter.  Allow brownies to cool completely (this is the hardest part of making these brownies, I want to cut right into them as soon as they come out of the oven).

Spread thin layer of Nutella over brownies (you should have some left over, the extra goes good in crepes the next day).  Sprinkle evenly with hazelnuts and chocolate chips.  Place in 350 degree oven for about 5 minutes, or until chocolate chips start to melt.  Remove from oven, let cool 5 minutes, cut, and serve.  Enjoy.


  1. I love this recipie! I was making brownies for dessert tonight now I am going to add the nutella.

  2. A jar of Nutella is never safe in our house...my daughter loves her chocolate sandwiches and I quite happily will eat it by the spoonful. Now you've given me another idea :-)

  3. Oh my, that is an awesome Brownie. I love Nutella and will make this very soon! Hope you are having a great week end and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
