Brownies. Dear mercy me, I love them dearly. So when Little Buddy declared his love for all things Nutella recently, I knew I had to spring these Nutella Brownies on him. Well, actually, they are my favorite fudge brownies recipe with Nutella swirled throughout.

And they are amazing.

I’m not sure if it is a good thing that they are so easy to make or not, but… if you are looking for a delicious snack or dessert to make in a jiffy that everyone will rave over – this might be your ticket.

Lunch box treats, afternoon snacks, or even thinking ahead for tailgating season that is just around the corner.

While I used my favorite fudge brownie recipe as the base for this recipe, you could easily use whatever brownie recipe you prefer or even your favorite brownies from a box if you are in a hurry. They should work great, too.

Then, just add the dollops of Nutella into the batter once it was poured into the brownie pan, give it a swirl with a knife or skewer and bake.

In fact, they may just be a little bit too easy, if you know what I mean.

Thankfully, Little Buddy had Scouts tonight, so I packed these babies up and sent them on their merry way so all of the Scouts could enjoy them. My brownie loving side isn’t speaking to me for a while.

  1. I love brownies with something extra awesome swirled in. It’s such a great way to make something simple into something special. And it looks cool and people are all impressed when all you did was move a knife around a little.

  2. These look like the PERFECT brownie. Lovely!!

  3. These are perfect! We LOVE nutella around here!

  4. OHEMGEEE. I can’t believe I’ve never thought to swirl Nutella into brownies before, but that is genius! My brownie tooth is going crazy! 🙂

    • They go quickly around here. My son and his buddies don’t take much time to appreciate the whole swirly look, they go for big slices instead!

  5. oh these are going on my must make list right NOW!

  6. I know people who love brownies but don’t respond the same way to these hazelnut spreads due to their excessive sweetness. One questionable ingredient could turn off a good recipe. Even though these spreads have been in this country long enough for people to have grown up on them, they haven’t won over everyone. I can remember when one had to go to Italy as a tourist in order to buy them.

  7. Those are some gorgeous swirls!

  8. Brownie perfection!! Now I am craving Nutella!!

  9. Delicious! What a great idea to add Nutella!

  10. You can never go wrong with brownies and Nutella!

  11. I love everything brownie and everything nutella so these are right up my alley. The swirl makes the top of these brownies look so pretty too!

  12. Robyn, these look fantastic! These might just have to be a super-special splurge treat every now and then! 😉

  14. This looks wonderful!!! What kind of nuts would be best in this? I usually use pecans in regular brownies but do I need to buy some hazelnuts???

  15. I’m really sad with how these turned out 🙁 beautiful look and texture but they don’t taste like chocolate…not sure why. I like boxed brownies better than this recipe 🙁

  16. I commented yesterday how my brownies didn’t taste chocolatey… but it turns out that they were just too hot. I tried one as soon as it came out of the oven and I couldn’t taste any chocolate. Just tried more today and it is delicious! Sorry for my comment yesterday!

  17. I am making these right now and I have high hopes for them. I am just trying to figure out if you soften the Nutella to make it easier to swirl through the brownie mix?

    Thank You!
