Nutella Brownies

February 5: World Nutella Day

We are nuts about Nutella, so baking these brownies was a great excuse to observe World Nutella Day. We have baked many brownies before, but this one is unique in that it contains only four ingredients, including that deliciously creamy, hazelnut chocolate spread! For a fabulous filbert-flavored quick snack with a chewy chocolate center, bake Nutella brownies.


(Adapted from the Nutella Forum)


  • ½ cup Nutella brand hazelnut chocolate spread
  • 1 egg
  • 5 tablespoons flour
  • ¼ cup filberts/hazelnuts, toasted and chopped


Line a 6-cup muffin tin with paper or foil cups.  In a mixing bowl, combine the Nutella with the egg. Gradually stir in the flour.

Scoop the brownie batter into the prepared muffin tin. Sprinkle with nuts. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F for about 10-12 minutes, testing for doneness with a toothpick. Remove from the oven and cool completely on a wire rack.

  • Nutella brownies may be iced with a chocolate or coffee-based frosting, sprinkled with other nuts besides filberts or dusted with cinnamon.
  • Instead of baking Nutella brownies in muffin tins lined with paper cups, bake them in different shaped pans. Use cookie cutters for interesting shaped brownies.
