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.

  5. Louis Toscano says:

    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.
