This recipe is inspired by David Chilcott, who is a video maker, cookbook author, and kitten enthusiast.

In his YouTube channel, OnePotChefShow, he shares the best traditional, home-style, and old forgotten classic recipes.

Most of the recipes featured are made in just one pot! One of these recipes is the ultimate Nutella brownies in a single pot. That’s how easy it is to make super-rich, super-chocolatey, super-fudgy brownies with Nutella, dark chocolate, and chopped nuts!

Fans of Nutella from all over the world, let’s get a little naughty!

Let’s get started on making this recipe a reality! You’ll need the following list to make this fabulous baked treat that everyone will love.

Here are the ingredients:

  • 700 grams of Nutella (just over 2 cups approximately)
  • 4 pieces of eggs
  • 1 cup of self-raising flour
  • 3/4 cup of chopped nuts (walnuts were used here)
  • 200 grams block of semi-sweet dark chocolate (roughly chopped)

The preparation time is approximately 10 minutes and the baking part is around 40 minutes. This would make 16 brownies depending on the serving size.

The steps are as follows:

First thing is to prepare your large mixing bowl, Nutella, and eggs.

Add the 700 grams, just over 2 cups of Nutella, or you can use any chocolate hazelnut spread you like and add in the 4 eggs. Beat these two together with a hand mixer until everything is smooth.

Then, add the self-raising flour to the mixture.

Put in 1 cup of self-raising flour and carefully fold the flour into the Nutella mixture.

If you can’t find self-raising flour, OnePotChefShow suggests using regular plain flour or all-purpose flour and then simply add in a teaspoon of baking powder.

Moreover, folding the flour means just scraping to the bottom and lifting it over the top. Gently mix it in until it is well blended.

Next, we can add the remaining ingredients to the mixture.

To give our brownies some crunch, add in 3/4 cup of any chopped nuts. Here, we used walnuts, and to have a bit of contrast to the sweet creaminess of Nutella, we’re going to include the 200 grams block of dark semi-sweet chocolate that was roughly chopped up.

This chocolate is not as sweet as the Nutella, however, it got a little bitterness but with lovely intense cocoa flavor.

To finish our brownie batter, simply fold these into the mixture until all are combined.

In these chunks, we’re going to have these pretty little nuggets of dark chocolaty goodness throughout the brownies.

The next step is to transfer the brownie batter into a square cake pan.

Get a 20 centimeter or 8-inch square cake pan and slightly greased with some spray-on oil and lined with some non-stick baking paper with a bit of overhang on two sides. In this way, it is easier to lift the goodie out when they’re done.

All we need to do is to transfer our brownie batter into the prepared pan. Then carefully smooth the surface so that it is soft and even on top.

OnePotChefShow also shared some insights:

“The reason I’m using this small square cake pan is, I don’t want this batter to spread out too much. If it spread out in a larger pan, you end up with thin brownies that dry out very quickly in the oven. You want them to be thick and dense and moist when they’re baked, and this pan is pretty much the perfect size for it. It won’t rise too much because this is quite a dense mixture.”

Now, it’s the most exciting part… Time to bake your brownies!

Preheat the oven at 360 degrees Fahrenheit (about 180 degrees Celsius). Set the timer to bake for about 40 minutes.

After 40 minutes, take them out of the oven.

As you can see, these newly baked brownies are fairly firm to touch.

And allow the brownies to cool in the pan for 15 minutes.

David also mentioned that:

“If you’re making this for a party and you’re planning to eat them immediately you just allow them to cool in the pan and then cut them up and serve. If however, you’re planning to eat them over the next couple of days in order to maintain that fudgy moistness in the inside, I recommend allowing them to cool for 15 to 20 minutes. Once they cool to the touch, you just cover it with a little bit of cling film and pop them into the fridge to chill and then you can cut them up and serve them as required.”

Finally, slice into squares. Serve and take pleasure in the ultimate Nutella brownies looking absolutely sensational!

It sticks to the roof of your mouth. They’re cakey and got this wonderful moist, fudginess in the center. You’ve got also the sweetness and creaminess from the Nutella, and a bit of sharpness from the dark chocolates, and of course the crunch from the nuts.

David added that you could use peanuts or even hazelnuts if you wanted to or add some sliced peanut butter mixture to it as well.

This recipe is absolutely amazing that you can change it to anything you like!
