Nutella Cheesecake Brownies

Nutella Cheesecake Brownies

Rich. Chewy. Decadent. Why pick between Nutella, brownies, and cheesecake when you can have all three in one decadent bite! My Nutella Cheesecake Brownies combine the rich flavour of my Fudgy Brownies, with creamy cheesecake, and luxurious chocolate hazelnut spread.

The “secret” to getting the gooey Nutella filling in my Nutella Cheesecake Brownies is super simple. Freeze dollops of Nutella on a baking sheet (or on any flat surface) and place them in the centre of the brownie during assembly. The oven will do the rest of the work!

  • Sugar (granulated)
  • Cocoa (unsweetened, dutch processed)
  • Butter (melted!)
  • Eggs
  • Flour
  • Cream Cheese
  • Nutella

*Ahead of time*

The night before you make these brownies, create 2 tsp dollops of Nutella and place them onto a baking sheet (or container). Freeze overnight.

Preheat oven to 350F. Line 9″ x 9” baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.

Brownie Mixture

In a large bowl, start by whisking together melted butter, sugar, and cocoa powder. Add eggs and vanilla. Whisk. Add flour and salt. Mix well until combined. Set aside.

Continue until pan is filled.

With a knife, gently create a swirl pattern throughout the mixture. Add scattered spoonfuls of Nutella on top of swirled mixture. Lightly swirl Nutella into into the brownie/cheesecake batter to create a swirled effect.

Bake at 350F (or 325F convection bake) for 32-37 minutes, mine were perfect after 35 min. Brownies will be firm at the edges and slightly wet in the centre. (Note: These brownies will continue to cook once you remove from oven so slightly wet dough on a toothpick while the mixture is firm at the edges is okay).

Let cool for 10-15 minutes before removing from pan. Brownies can be let to cool completely on a flat surface or in baking pan. Cut and Enjoy! (or chill cheesecake brownies in the fridge for 1-2 hr – then serve)

Notes

Sofia’s Tips:
  • To measure flour correctly: Use a spoon to scoop flour into your measuring cup! This ensures you don’t add too much flour to these cookies and end up with dry cookies
  • These brownies can be frozen in an air-tight freezer safe bag and stored in the freezer for up to 6 months
  • These brownies are best stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. When preparing to serve, allow brownies to rest at room temperature for at least 20 minutes to return to the same soft consistency. 
  • Chopped chocolate and a dusting of powdered sugar are a fun way to make these brownies even more elegant!
