Alright brownie lovers…. I’ve got you!!!!

One Bowl Brownies

Forget about making a big mess in the kitchen… these Nutella brownies are made using just one bowl! That’s it!

There’s no need for any fancy equipment – simply melt the butter and chocolate and then mix everything together.

These brownies COULD NOT BE EASIER!!!

What You Need

To make my super simple one-bowl Nutella brownies, you’ll need:

  • butter – I like to use unsalted butter and add a pinch of salt to the mixture – this allows you to control the saltiness in the brownie
  • dark chocolate – use a good quality dark cooking chocolate (I like to use Nestle, Lindt or Cadbury brands)
  • Nutella – or any chocolate hazelnut spread
  • brown sugar – light or dark brown can be used.
  • eggs – use large eggs (approximately 55g)
  • vanilla extract
  • salt
  • plain flour – also known as all-purpose flour

The Secret To Gooey Brownies

Ever wondered how you make amazing cafe-style gooey, rich and fudgy brownies? I’ve got you covered:

  • Nutella is the key to making these brownies incredibly fudgy and gooey… and just wait til the next day (they’re even more DELICIOUS!)
  • adding the extra egg yolk gives the brownies a thick dense texture
  • cooking the brownies until the top is flakey and the base is still moist and fudgy is key! Don’t overcook the brownies! Test them by inserting a skewer into the middle, it should come out with a thick smear of brownie on it (but not runny).
