Does anyone else eat Nutella by the spoonful? As a child, I used to get down on the a Nutella jar after school because it was the ultimate comfort.

Thinking about it now, it was probably a lot but hey I enjoyed every bit of it and it was 100% worth it. If I knew I could make easy brownies with it I would’ve probably ran through so many more jars of Nutella to be honest!

This is the best small-batch Nutella brownie recipe

When I made this brownie recipe, I completely steer away from the original way of making brownies. Most recipes use either cocoa powder ( Easy chewy Brownies With Cocoa Powder) or with melted chocolate( Bakery Style Brownies With no Cocoa Powder+VIDEO+TIPS) or with both. But this time I wanted to go a little wild and use one of my favorite childhood spreads, NUTELLA!

If you never try any of my recipes, I need you to give this one a try at least. It is ridiculously easy, uses minimal ingredients, and comes in a small package. It is a great recipe for portion control as well

What is Nutella?

Nutella is a Hazelnut sweetened cocoa spread. It is smooth, chocolatey, and very nutty.

It is made with sugar, palm oil, cocoa powder, and hazelnuts.

What chocolate chips should I use for brownies?

In this recipe I used milk chocolate Ghirardelli chocolate chips but you can use dark chocolate chips, semi sweet chocolate chips, or even white chocolate chips. Each one of these would go so well with this hazelnut spread. Play around and see what you like most.
