Prep Time15 mins

Total Time45 mins
- 1 stick (8 Tablespoons) unsalted butter
- 1 and 1/8 cups granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup Nutella
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup plus 2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon instant espresso powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 and 1/2 cups chocolate chips
- Additional Nutella for swirling optional
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease or line a standard 8"x8" baking pan and set aside.
In a small saucepan set over low heat, melt the butter completely. Add the sugar and mix constantly until most of the sugar has dissolved. Do not allow the sugar mixture to boil. Take the saucepan off the heat and stir in the Nutella and mix well.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or in a large bowl if using a handheld mixer, add the eggs, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder, espresso powder, and vanilla. Then pour in the Nutella mixture and mix on medium speed until well blended. Turn the mixer to low and slowly add in the flour and mix until everything just comes together.
Turn the mixer off and fold in the chocolate chips with a spatula. Transfer the batter to your prepared baking pan and be sure to smooth the top.
Add dollops of additional Nutella and swirl with a knife. Bake in your preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a little bit of batter.
Allow the brownies to cool before serving. Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator. They will keep for several days.
