One Bowl Nutella Fudge Brownies

/// October 4th, 2014

One Bowl Nutella Fudge Brownies Super decadent Nutella fudge brownies made with just one-bowl! My favorite recipe for when I want my chocolate fix, and fast! A must for every Nutella lover out there!

One Bowl Nutella Fudge Brownies We may be new to our neighborhood, but our little home is quickly becoming the place to-go when you want to eat and drink delicious things. Word spreads fast, huh? I guess you could say I’m building quite the reputation… and well, I like it! A full nest – be it with family or new friends – is what life is all about! It makes me feel whole and happy. With love and hope and excitement. Also, guests bring boozy gifts like organic wine and fruity champagnes. So ya know… winning!

Question: Do you enjoy entertaining? Or do you find it completely unnerving and overwhelming? Feel free to speak your mind 😉 We’re all friends here.

One Bowl Nutella Fudge Brownies Today I’ll be showing you my favorite simple but totally impressive way of winning new people over… NUTELLA FUDGE BROWNIES. Nutella is obviously key here. But a stick of butter, a handful of chocolate chips, and a little patience will take you far.

One Bowl Nutella Fudge Brownies Side note: The patience is only required post-baking. As in, those long 45 minutes you sit in a room dancing with the seductive scent of freshly baked brownies fighting the urge to cut into them because they’re still cooling. Mrah. It’s torture. Why does waiting for baked goods to cool always feel like a lifetime?!

One Bowl Nutella Fudge Brownies Fact: I’m a fool for easy recipes. Check that – easy, AMAZING recipes. These perfect nutella fudge brownies are chocolate covered proof that quick and simple can still equal wanted and worthy. Delicious does not have to be complicated.

Here’s how this whole one-bowl nutella fudge brownie thing works:

Melt some butter in a large pan over low heat. You’ll add in your chocolate and nutella riiiight at the end, and go crazy stirring them up until they’re one. Next you add some sugar – mix, mix, mix. Crack in a few eggs; whisk it up! And finally, flour. The most important part, I think, is not overpacking your flour! This recipe only needs one cup, so be sure to scoop it lightly. Accuracy is everything when it comes to flour.

Bonus: While the brownies are in the oven, your house will start smelling like your very own chocolate factory. Pop on a pot of coffee, sit back, and enjoy it.

One Bowl Nutella Fudge Brownies When you take the brownies out of the oven, the center may look just a tad wobbly. This is good. The brownies firm up when cooling, so be sure not to over bake. Also, please please please let them cool completely before removing them from the pan.

If you feel like treating yourself extra special (do it do it do it) you can slather these already mega awesome brownies in a thick layer of nutella (you’re worth it). Sprinkle with salty pistachios, obviously. And then, surrender. Sink your teeth into that thick, fudgy nutella spiked treat and let the sweet sweep of dessert satisfaction take over. Nutella brownies for the win! 

And don’t forget a milk chaser. BOOM. xo

One Bowl Nutella Fudge Brownies

One Bowl Nutella Fudge Brownies


  • 1 1/2 cups dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 1 stick (4 ounces) SALTED butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs + 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
  • 1 cup all purpose flour (be sure not to pack your flour!)
  • For topping:
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 1 cup shelled pistachios, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).
  2. In a small saucepan melt the butter and 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips over medium-low heat, stirring frequently. Once the butter is completely melted and the chocolate has completely dissolved, stir in the nutella. Remove from heat.
  3. Add sugar and beat well. Then add eggs, yolk, and finally flour, stirring until just combined! Fold in remaining chocolate chips. Be sure not to over mix the batter or your final product will be cake like brownies, not chewy ones.
  4. Pour batter into a lightly greased 8×8 baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven; let cool for at least 30 minutes, then cut into squares and serve!
  6. If topping, simply slather with additional nutella and sprinkle with pistachios right before serving.

Salted Caramel Snickers Fudge Brownies are great when you want something EXTRA decadent!

    You had me at Nutella. It makes me weak in the knees! These brownie look gorgeous. And I hate waiting for baked good to cool. Sometime after I pull them out of the oven I go take my dog for a walk to get out of my house because it smells so good that I can hardly stand it!

    I made these last night, and they are delicious! I think next time I would make it in a slightly larger pan because they are very thick in an 8×8 pan, thicker than they appear in the picture. And, while I like a fudgy brownie, these almost bordered on slightly undercooked though I cooked a little longer than advised in the recipe. I think a larger pan would solve that problem. Thank you for an easy and super chocolaty recipe!

      Hi Beth! My brownies always come out of the oven looking slightly underdone, but they do firm up after an hour or so 😉 For less of a wait, I think a 9X9 pan would do you great! Thanks for making my recipe and reporting back! I’m so happy you enjoyed them. xo

    I love easy and delicious deserts! This looks amazing but I think I am going to use Speculos instead! I’ll keep you posted!

    I made this last night and again tonight. They were a big hit. I baked them in a 9 x 9 pan for 21-22 minutes. Perfect!!

  5. Annette

    Just wondering how the butter and chocolate melting process goes. Do you melt the butter and then add the chocolate to melt in the same pan? Or do you melt both separately and then mix?

    This recipe looks awesome, can’t wait to try it!

    I tried this brownie recipe, it was delicious but very sweet, I think that with less sugar would be great. Thank you for sharing it!! Greetings from Nicaragua!

      Hi Alejandra! I’m so glad you enjoyed the recipe. To make a less sweet brownie, try using unsweetened chocolate next time 😉 That should decrease the sweetness greatly.

    Hi! My friends loved it but my mom said it was too soft. I checked for doneness in the middle of the brownies and it was still wet even afte 45 minutes. I will try raising up my oven temp.

      Hi Regina. You may have an oven that runs a little low in temperature. Question for you: Did you allow the brownies to cool completely in the pan before cutting? They come out of the oven a little soft, but firm up once cooled.

      1. Amy

        My oven cooks things pretty true to the temperature/time that most recipes call for. I made these brownies this morning and needed to bake them for 50 minutes using a 9×9 glass dish. They still seemed raw in the middle, however the edges were starting to burn so I had to take them out of the oven. They are cooling right now. They smell delish so I’m hoping they “set up” in the middle. Although I don’t see how they possibly could. Next time I will be using a 9×13 pan. :)

    hey i just wanted to ask that could i use a microwave to make this dish and if i could use microwave in how much temperature should i bake it in.
    im too excited to make this recipe
    thank you

    1. bakerbynature Post author

      Hi Mrinalini! I have never made these brownies in a microwave and do not think they would be able to be made in it using this recipe. Do you have an oven? They’ve very easy to bake!

    First brownie recipe i tried. First time didn’t come out right. I think i was suppose 2 use a mixer. Second time will be a little different

  10. Nana Amankwatia

    How do u handle taking out the Nutella? Is there a less messier way or a tip u could give me? Always have a problem with creamy or gooey ingredients.

    These are the best brownies I’ve ever made. Coming from England I was a bit worried about converting the measurements from cups to grams but they turned our perfectly and everyone loved them. These were the softest brownies I’ve made without tasting raw. 10/10 and I never comment on blog posts. Thank you for sharing
