4-Ingredient Chocolate Nutella Brownies

February 2, 2018 (Last Updated: April 18, 2019)

Made with only 4 ingredients, these fudgy, chewy and soft, Chocolate Nutella Brownies will blow your mind away.  With an irresistible chocolate hazelnut flavor, you won’t be able to stop at one.

Brownies are one dessert that don’t need an introduction!  It’s like someone took chocolate cake and made it chewy and gooey on the inside.  

My family LOVES brownies, enough to go any lengths to making them.   We make many variations of brownies like, Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies, Salted Caramel Brownies, Double Dark Chocolate Brownies, Peppermint Bark Brownies, and many more.  This recipe for 4-ingredient Chocolate Nutella Brownies is our go-to brownie recipe.

Brownies from Scratch with Just 4 Ingredients

This recipe is really simple to make.  All you need is all-purpose flour, Nutella (Hazelnut Spread), eggs and chocolate chips. 

The addition of chocolate chips makes the brownies really yummy and gooey.  The chips melt as the brownies cook and then you bite into pockets of melted chocolate, which adds a whole new flavor dimension.

If you don’t care for gooey brownies, you can skip the chocolate chips and make this recipe with just 3-ingredients

Sometimes, we like to add a 5th ingredient to this recipe, chopped walnuts, and that takes it to another level of yumminess!  The walnuts provide a nice flavor and texture contrast to the brownies.  But that’s purely optional.

Guess Who Perfected This Homemade Brownie Recipe?

The credit for this easy brownie recipe goes entirely to my kids!  They simply love Nutella!  So, they tweaked their favorite Chocolate Brownies recipe and substituted Nutella for the melted chocolate.  They tested and re-tested this recipe a few times, trying out different combinations of flour and Nutella, and even adding cocoa powder to see if the results were tastier.

Finally, they came up with this recipe for 4-Ingredient Chocolate Brownies, which has now become a regular for game day parties in our house.   My kids make a coffee-mug version of this recipe too- Brownies in a Mug– perfect for single servings.

How to Dress-UP Chocolate Nutella Brownies

We love making these brownies for special occasions, game-day, valentine’s day and pretty much any day we feel like indulging. If I am making them for an occasion, I like to dress them up a bit.

For Super Bowl, or any game day parties, I make a simple sugar icing, or a cream cheese icing and pipe a football symbol on the brownies.

For Valentine’s Day, I mix a drop of pink or red food color in the icing, and pipe cute little hearts on the brownies. A little bit of customization makes them look even more tempting.

How to Make a Quick Icing

To make a simple sugar glaze icing, I mix 1/2 cup of confectioner’s sugar with 1-2 teaspoon of cold water. Start by adding 1 teaspoon first and add more only if needed.

To make it colorful, simply add a drop or two of gel food color of your choice. remember, when dealing with food color, less is more.

Using a spoon, fill the icing in a piping bag, or a ziplock bag, and push down the icing to a corner. Roll the bag tight so you can squeeze the icing from that corner. Cut the very tip of the bag to make a very small hole. Now using a firm and steady grip, gently squeeze out the piping and make whatever design you wish.
