Nutella Fudge Brownies

This is a super easy, four-ingredient recipe. It only makes a dozen mini brownies so if you're looking for something substantial, it might not work - unless you have a few jars of Nutella on hand. The one I "taste-tested" was good.

My version

 Nutella Fudge Brownies


1/2 C. Nutella spread
1 large egg
5 T. all-purpose flour
1/2 C. chopped hazelnuts


1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees.  Line a 12-cup mini muffin pan with paper or foil liners.
2.  Put the Nutella and egg in a medium bowl and whisk until smooth and well blended.  Add the flour and whisk until blended.
3.  Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tins (about 3/4 full) and sprinkle with the chopped hazelnuts.
4.  Bake until a pick comes out with wet, gooey crumbs, 11 to 12 minutes.  Set on a rack to cool completely.  Serve immediately or cover and store at room temperature for up to 3 days.

Switch-Ins:  In place of the hazelnuts, switch in one of the following:
  • ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon (add with the flour)
  • peanuts, chopped, 1/4 cup
***I actually switched in walnut halves on top of each brownie, because that's what I had on hand. I bet the hazelnuts would taste amazing though. And the cinnamon sounds good.

***I found this recipe here but this blog author got it from Abby Dodge, cookbook author of Desserts 4 Today: Flavorful Desserts with Just Four Ingredients.


  1. And I'll be trying this recipe - YUMMY!

  2. What a simple sounding recipe. I like your variations on it.

  3. Lisa, it is so easy. Start to finish, it takes probably 20 minutes max. I'll add it to the Saturday sweets tomorrow! :)

  4. I thought i would try these since my parents are coming in this weekend....I don't think they'll last until Saturday.

  5. Since they're so easy, that's why you make them Saturday morning, just before they come. Or make two batches. :)
