These Nutella Brownies have the ideal chewy brownie texture. With only two tablespoons of cocoa powder, the chocolate flavor comes from lots of Nutella. This easy brownie recipe is small-batch and absolutely DELICIOUS!
– ⅔ cup all-purpose flour – 2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder – ½ teaspoon salt – ½ cup unsalted butter melted – ½ cup granulated sugar – 2 large eggs room temperature – 1½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract – 1 cup Nutella divided into ¾ cup and ¼ cup
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and line an 8-by-8-in baking pan with parchment paper.
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, and salt.
In a large bowl, whisk the melted butter and sugar together until incorporated. (Whisk well for 1-2 minutes.)
Add the eggs and vanilla extract, whisk for an additional 2 minutes, until light in color.
Carefully whisk in the ¾ cup of Nutella (we do not want to deflate the whipped egg mixture).
Finally, gently fold the dry ingredients into the Nutella-egg mixture. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and smooth it into an even layer.
Drop spoonfuls of the remaining Nutella on the surface of the brownie batter. Using a knife, swirl the Nutella into the batter.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the brownies to cool before cutting them into slices.
