Incredible 3-Ingredient Nutella Brownies – These irresistibly fudgy, soft brownies are SO easy to make and taste 10x better than brownies from a box!|

If there’s one indulgence I love, it’s chocolate. Me + chocolate = foreva. During my pregnancy, it was BAD. And, strangely, my perpetual craving still isn’t easily satisfied. So, I’ve been trying lots of different recipes lately. (Which is my way of saying, eating a lot of chocolate.) Trying them out on my friends, trying them out on my readers, and trying to remember to hit the exercise bike in the process. Two out of three of those have been a relative success.

In the process, I believe I’ve found the mother of all brownie recipes. These babies only need three ingredients, five minutes, and a glass of milk (or scoop of vanilla ice cream) on the side. Or nothing at all… they’re perfect on their own!

These incredible brownies have a fudgy yet cakey texture, with that classic creamy Nutella flavor. They’re super quick to make and absolutely addictive, especially to the choco-holics in your life. You have just GOT to try them!

  5. I need this in my life!! Holy delicious!

  6. Ahhh this is dangerously easy!! Of course I’m going to try these soon!

  7. They look great… and you cut them so perfectly! What a perfect little treat for my kids after school. :)

  8. oh my goodness, this is beyond dangerous. Love it!

  9. Only 3 ingredients?! I love fudgy brownies and these look soooo amazing! Pinned!

  10. Has anyone ACTUALLY MADE THESE? If you have, please comment on how they turned out, tasted, etc.

  11. Hi Peggy – I just posted the recipe today, so no one is likely to have reviewed it yet. However, I’ve made these multiple times and can personally assure you that they taste wonderful! You can read my post for a more detailed description.

  12. A tried and true recipe is always the BEST. Thank you for sharing

  13. Gorgeous brownies, Georgia! What’s not to love about Nutella and only 3 ingredients?!

  14. Thabitha in South Africa says:

    I’m gonna try these today

  15. I wish I had one of these right now!

  16. Oh my, I love this recipe. it’s hard to believe it’s only three ingredients.

  17. You had me at Nutella……and brownies…..two of my favorite things!! :)

  18. Georgia, these look incredibly delicious! I’m a choc-a-holic in the biggest way, and if Nutella is involved, forget about it! :)

  19. Made these today using Trader Joe’s version of Nutella. Very quick and easy to mix together and delicious. They don’t rise much so I might try the baking soda option next time. Great, easy recipe and just one bowl to wash up.

  20. GEEEEEEEEEENIUS! loooovelovelove how simple & easy these brownies are (I mean…3 ingredients). and of course NUTELLA=LOVE

  21. Just made these for my hubby and kids, and they ate the whole pan in minutes!!! Sooooo delicious and fudgey! The Nutella flavor was subtle, more just like a crazy easy chocolate brownie, so I smeared some extra Nutella over the top while hot and it was amazing! Thanks for the recipe!

  22. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I just tried it and my one-year old LOVED it!

  23. How long would you bake it if it were in a 9×13 pan?

  24. I’ve only ever made these in a square pan, but I would stick with the same baking time and just keep an eye on them. Hope you enjoy!

  25. Look so good,Georgia,are you sure only three ingredients?And how much time would this take altogether?

  26. Yes, just 3 ingredients (unless you like fluffier brownies, then add 1/2 tsp. baking soda). They take under 10 minutes to come together.

  27. Just made these and they taste awesome! I used a 9×6 pan and they were perfectly done in 25mins.

  28. I made these with cake flour and did toss in the baking soda. Soft tender and addictive.

  29. can ı put this mixture in a souffle cups? thanx

  30. You can certainly try!

  31. I just made these exactly as recipe directs and they were wonderful. 25 minutes was perfect time for my toaster oven. True, they don’t rise a lot, but my husband says these are his new favorite quick dessert.

  32. Thanks for posting this recipe.I just made this and It was so quick to whip up. Instead of using all purpose flour, I used ground up oatmeal and topped it with walnuts. Yummy!

  33. I made these today with the added baking soda and they turned out amazing. Very impressed, thanks for the recipe!

  34. These brownies are excellent! I love brownies but sadly have a bitch of a time making them, they either come out too hard or not done enough. These are the first brownies I have made that come out really good. They do only make a thinner brownie in an 8×8 pan, which is enough for me. But if you are looking to bring some into work or an event, you may want to double the recipe.

  35. These are absolutely amazing! I’ve made in countless times, one is in the oven as I type this! And I added some sea salt in the batter and sprinkled some on top after. Tastes pretty darn good too! (:

  36. The easiest and most delicious brownie recipe ever…Thank you!!! I was able to do house chores whilst have these in the oven baking in the oven at the same time & they came out divine!!! A big hit with my kids!!! I dusted mine with a bit of icing sugar before serving.. Amazing!!!

  37. Yum, these sound incredible. thanks for sharing this recipe.

    OK I am a hopeless baker but these turned out sooo good! A little on the thin side though — did I do something wrong? I added the baking soda.

    Otherwise, chewy most and so delicious! My 6 year old and I had the best time making/eating them.

  39. Hmm, maybe your baking soda was expired? Or you didn’t add the full amount? Sounds like they still turned out great. I’m glad you enjoyed them!

  40. they look amazing but to have 154 grams of fat in just an 8×8 pan, i’m going to try to resist making them.

  41. How do you figure 154 grams of fat for the whole pan? My calculations yield 120g total. Per brownie (if 12 servings) is 197 calories – 10g fat – 23g carbs.

  42. I looked up nutella nutritonal info There are 16 tablespoons in a cup. 1.25 cups (i misread that it was 1.5 cups so my numbers are a little off.) 16×1.25 = 20 tablespoons 2 tablespoons per serving so 10 servings @ 12 grams of fat each 120 fat and you have to add the fat from the eggs- 5 grams per egg, so 130 grams per whole pan, sorry i figured an extra 1/4 cup of nutella, stll 130 grams fat for a small pan still more than i want to try. they do look delicious though. I know myself and I would want at least 2 servings and that would be about 1/3 of my fat calories for the whole day.

  43. I made these 2 days in a row. Added extra nutella and cut up cubury milk chocolate the first time making it. (It was TO DIE FOR) and second time, i doubled the recipe for a class potluck. It was gone in 5 minutes!

    Thanks for posting this super easy genius recipe!



  44. Katherine says:

    I’m only 11 and these sound so easy! I can’t wait to try them tomorrow!

  45. Monika Hatch says:

    I made these brownies for my husband.
    While I’m normally not a fan of them, omg
    these are the best brownies I’ve ever had.
    The second time I made them, I had to do
    a double batch, cause everyone in the
    neighboorhood loved them as well.

  46. Have you ever made these in mini muffin tins? What is the baking time like? Same temperature?

  47. i tried these just now but the batter was more like doughy… not at all runny like brownie batter….. is that normal? i followed this recipe exactly…
    popped it in the oven anyway.. guess we’ll see how it turns out

    is plain flour different from all purpose flour? lol i couldn’t find flour that was called all-purpose so just bought plain flour.

  48. The dough may be somewhat stiff, but should still produce brownies as the pictures represent. Yes, all purpose flour = plain flour. Did these turn out well for you?

  49. Hah-I made mine with two eggs from my backyard chickens, added a cup of chopped walnuts, and organic whole wheat flour! DE-LISH!!!!!

  50. These are the best brownies I’ve ever had. They are sooo good. I added a super small pinch of baking powder and cooked them in ramekins. They turned out almost like lava cake. The outside and top were crisp and the middle was fudgy and yummy. I don’t even like nutella, but I had some that was about to expire so I used it to make this and now I’m a fan!

  51. Andrea rumic says:

    Can you add peanut butter to the mix when making these nutella brownies?

  52. I have never tried it, but you could give it a shot. You might like my 1-Minute Chocolate Peanut Butter Mug Cake recipe, too!

  53. Hi do i need to sieve the flour? Thanks :)

  54. You don’t need to sift the flour, but you can if you prefer.

  55. I’m only 12 and I have just tried these. They are in the oven hope they turn out good! Everyone else’s comments say there amazing so really excited!

  56. I’m only a kid and I’ve just made These . They are in the oven at the mo but can’t wait to try them everyone else’s comments say they are amazing so will just have to wait and see! Btw I love your website!

  57. I made these today but used self rising flour. They were very tasty but more fluffy than chewy.

  58. Making these tonight!! Do you think this would be good with cream cheese icing marbled through?

  59. That might work. You may need to increase the baking time though.

  60. A co-worker made these, and I was blown away by how delicious they were. I have a batch in the oven as I type this. These are exactly the type of brownies I love. Perfection!

  61. I just wanted to ask what 1.5 cups mean in terms of tablespoons?

  62. 1 1/2 cups would be 24 Tablespoons. However, you are basically using the entire jar (as listed, 13 oz.) of Nutella. Hope that helps!

  63. Marianne Soher says:

    Read it, did it, shared it with my grand’daughter…total 3 hrs there was nothing left of it! This cake is a winner! I am a good cook but cakes have never been my thing…till today! Will have to double the quantity next time! Thanks!

  64. Just made them and added some chocolate chunks in them! Never enough chocolate. Heaven! Thanks for the recipe!

  65. Yea I made these today….so freaking easy!! So super yummy! My kid who hates Nutella, loves these & won’t stay out of them!

  66. this resipe is so awesome if made it 2 times and to make it just a little better after it was cooked I put salt on the top and it added crutch but you couldn’t taste the salt

  67. My hubby hates Nutella. Hershey’s chocolate spreads are scrumptious and they come in a 13 oz jar, as well, so I’m going to try this recipe, using a jar of Hershey’s! Thanks so much!

  68. I baked them in my Betty Crocker mini cupcake maker and let them bake for roughly 7-10 minutes and they turned out perfect and not flat at all!

  69. Lynne Bennett says:

    I made these and they turned out very well, as l am used to English recipes l used 70 gram Self Raising flour, l didn’t realise at that point that all purpose flour was Plain! I also added the Baking Powder, l assumed that was what Baking Soda was, or is it what we call Bicarbonate of Soda? And although not as deep as l would have liked they were great, everyone who tried them couldn’t believe they were so simple. I cooked them at 170c. In England our ovens are set to centigrade. Thought l would mention these adaptations for English bakers!
    My new favourite recipe for Coffee Mornings and Cake Fairs

  70. Bicarbonate of soda and baking soda are the same thing, yes. Baking powder is entirely different. I’m so glad you enjoyed these brownies, though!

  71. Just made these tonight and they were sooooo yummy! Not overly chocolatey, but that could be solved with some chocolate chips added in or frosting them (with extra Nutella!), and I’m wondering about mixing in some chopped hazelnuts to kick up that nutty flavour. I especially love how easy they were to make and how nicely they turned out. I added the baking soda for that cake-y texture :) Next time, I’ll have to double the recipe and make a bigger batch! Thanks for posting the recipe!

  72. I just made these using a mini muffin pan. They turned out fantastic. I love the subtle, nutty flavor from the Nutella. Thanks for the recipe!

  73. Nutella is my favorite cream bread or pancakes and waffles. There are many nice rules how to do it yourself. I do it in several ways often such a provision idea also thank him check.

  74. I just made these and they are amazing! The quickest brownie recipe I’ve ever found, perfect for satisfying a chocolate craving like no other. Great job! :)

  75. Hi, what do you mean when you say ‘mix’ the ingredients? Using a hand mixer or just a spoon/whisk? Thanks!

  76. I wanted to write a brief comment to say thanks to you for these precious facts you are giving out on this site.

    Omg! I made these for my parents yesterday, and when me and my mom tried them, we were in shock! This recipe is SO good! Its fudgy and has a light but also kinda dense texture (if that makes sense)! My dad doesnt like nutella straight from the jar, but he thought these were really good!

  81. 5 stars
    Absolutely delicious! I added some unsweetened coconut and chocolate chips to mine and they’re to die for (honestly much better than the sweet potato ones I used to making)
