Hello Brownie Lovers! 🙋‍♀️ Those Nutella Brownies are the ultimate treat if you love brownies AND Nutella! Nothing better than a fudgy brownie with a creamy Nutella topping. I mean, who can say no to a baked square of gooey chocolate?

Nutella is stirred into the batter, which gives those brownies a wonderful nutty chocolate taste with a note of hazelnut. No extra chocolate is needed for this recipe, but you can fold in a few chocolate chips if you like so.

Additionally, the brownie batter is topped with a few dollops of Nutella, which is slightly swirled into the batter – this last step makes for a creamy top layer once baked!

Feel free to use a chocolate spread of your choice. You can even go for a dairy-free one!
