nutella brownies


You need just 4 simple ingredients to make this incredible fudgy Nutella Brownies! In few minutes you'll get crinkle top brownies with an irresistible chewy and rich center.
These brownies are made with a lot of creamy Nutella, cocoa, eggs and flour: that's it! You can put them together in few minutes and bake for less than 20 minutes. I love fudgy brownies, if you prefer fudgy than cakey texture, I suggest to not overbake them. They are ready when the top is dry but, if you test the center with a toothpick, it comes out slightly moist and not completely dry.
This recipe is incredibly quick and easy, you can also prepare them with your kids: they surely fall in love with these brownies!

  • In a large bowl, mix the eggs with a hand mixer for some minutes until double/triple its volume and become light and thick.

Hello, I am Valentina! Welcome to How Tasty!

I am an Italian girl in love with baking and cooking. I’ve been raised in a cooking family, baking since I was a little girl and learning from my mom and my professional chef grandma.

I created the Youtube channel How Tasty in 2017 to share with you my passion.

You don’t need to be a professional cook to follow all my recipes thanks to the video tutorials and the tips & hints you can find here.

Let’s cook!

You don’t need to add any sugar in this recipe because Nutella is very sweet and with this recipe you’ll get sweet Nutella brownies. If you’re using other type of hazelnut spread, you can taste the batter, decide if it’s sweet enough and add sugar according to your taste.

I’ve trimmed the edges and slice in 9 squares, but it’s totally optional. You can also slice in 16 little squares, that’s the perfect size if you’re setting up a sweet table buffet!

The best way to make perfect neat cuts when you slice brownies, is to heat your chef knife (not a serrated knife). Some people use hot water, then dry the blade before make the cut. But I prefer to heat directly over the stovetop: your blade will be very hot in 3 seconds!
