Oh my goodness, you guys. Nutella Brownie Bites. You know me. I love a good excuse to bake goodies, especially when those baked treats contain chocolate AND Nutella.
When I was trying to think of something I could bake that would be a perfect book club treat (based on this post I did for the book This is Where I Leave You – NOTE: this is not a sponsored post), I saw a picture on Pinterest that I thought would be a lot of fun. I mixed up my normal brownie batter with one alteration – I substituted Nutella for the chocolate chips that my recipe called for. That first batch completely flopped (I tried making brownie bowls. They were a mess!) but the brownie-disaster tasted unbelievably delicious. My husband and I polished off the scrapings of the muffin tin (at least the part that didn’t end up charred on the bottom of the oven) and I vowed to try again.
The next day, I made these:
Same amazing taste….but these didn’t end up as oven ashes.
Brownie bites – especially brownie bites that taste THIS good – are perfect for parties (or book clubs) because they are easy-to-handle single-servings. I will be making these again and again!
- 1 cup butter
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 4 eggs, slightly beaten
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup unsweetened cocoa
- ¼ cup Nutella
- ½ teaspoon salt
- Heat oven to 350°. Grease mini muffin tin (or use mini liners).
- In medium saucepan over medium-low heat, melt butter; turn of heat. Add sugar, vanilla, and eggs; blend well.
- Stir in flour, cocoa, Nutella, and salt; mix well. Scoop into mini muffin tins; fil each cup about ⅔ full.
- Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes.
- Cool completely in muffin tin. When cool, remove carefully, loosening sides with butter knife if needed.
Note: one thing that I will do differently next time is that I will use mini cupcake liners for sure. Much easier to get out of the baking dish. Or I’ll use a non-stick silicone muffin dish like this one.
This recipe makes about 48 mini brownie bites.

These would be dangerous to have around because I would eat them all. Thanks for sharing your brownie bites recipe on Merry Monday. Pinned.
Ahh… these look really good. I want to take all these now! :D Thanks for sharing & have a lovely week!
PS: I hope you can party with us, too, at Fiesta Friday (https://fiestafriday.net/) Looking forward to seeing you there. ;)
Yummy! These little bites look incredible and so delicious. Thank you for sharing. PINNED!
That is such a great idea! I love having bite-sized snacks on hand for whenever the craving arises!
Yes, I’m the same…which is why I was so eager to try making a Nutella brownie. The “bites” make it easier for me to not eat a ton. In theory. :)

These look like they would be so addicting! :) Nutella’s definitely a major weakness, and your brownies look absolutely delicious! Can’t wait to try! :)

Thanks for sharing! These look so good! I think I will make a batch and keep them in the freezer, you know, in case of a chocolate craving emergency :)
This looks delicious, I cannot wait to give it a try. I tried Nutella for the first time a few months ago. How could I have lived for so long without knowing about something so delicious? Thank you for sharing this recipe.

These are so wonderful. You know you can make a variation on this which is pretty good with Almond Butter and Melted Chocolate chips too.
