Nutella Brownies

Nutella Chocolate Brownie Recipe

If there’s one way to better the humble Chocolate Brownie, it’s to add Nutella to it. The smooth, rich chocolatey hazelnut just seems to add a depth to the brownie, and with more swirled on top, it feels like a little bit of heaven. I am a little bit of a fan of Nutella though – I get palpitations if we don’t have any in the house. It’s my snack of choice and I’ll think nothing of eating it straight from the jar. This seems a slightly more acceptable way to eat Nutella by the bucket load. You can put as much or as little into the mix as you’d like. I put 4 dessert spoons in but you could easily put one or two more in if you’d like.

If you would like to make your own, you’ll need:

Ingredients:

  • 200g unsalted butter, plus a little extra for greasing
  • 200g chocolate (I made mine with a 50/50 mix of milk and dark chocolate)
  • 200g golden caster sugar (I used white caster sugar as it was all I had)
  • 4 medium eggs, at room temperature
  • 130g plain flour
  • 50g cocoa powder
  • A jar of Nutella

You’ll also need:

  • 23cm tray bake tin
  • Medium saucepan
  • Mixing bowl
  • Measuring scales
  • Spatula
  • Baking Parchment
  • Skewer

Method:

  1. Heat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius/Gas Mark 4
  2. Grease and line your baking tin with baking parchment
  3. Melt the butter and chocolate in a saucepan on a low heat, stirring continuously until fully melted
  4. Put the sugar and eggs into a mixing bowl and beat together until well combined
  5. Add in the melted chocolate and butter and stir again until combined
  6. Sift the flour and cocoa on top of the chocolate mix and beat briefly until smooth
  7. Add 4 good dessert spoons of Nutella
  8. Pour the brownie mix into the baking tin and level it with a spatula
  9. Blob on more Nutella on top and carefully swirl with a skewer (you can also do this with the tip of your spoon if you’re careful)
  10. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until risen all the way to the middle with a firm crust on top. When ready, the brownie will jiggle just a little when you shake the tin
  11. Let it cool completely in the tin, then cut into squares

Check out the photo – look at the crust; look at the super indulgent centre…yes, it does taste as good as it looks. If you enjoyed this, why not make your own and share it with us on the What Corrine Did Next Facebook page? We’re also on Instagram
