Hi everyone! Sam here from Sugar Spun Run with another sweet recipe to share! Today I brought Nutella Blondies!

I’m not sure how it is in your house, but an open jar of Nutella in my pantry is bad news. No matter how much self control I think I have, I inevitably find myself with a spoon in hand standing over an empty jar, wondering how I got to this point in life. Again.

So when my local grocery store had a sale a few weeks ago and I stocked up on five jars of Nutella, I knew that some emergency baking was in order so that I could use it up as quickly as possible. I spent a few jars perfecting my Nutella Cookies and then moved on to making these delicious Nutella Blondies.

Nutella blondies start off with a simple (just one-bowl required!) buttery cookie/blondie base

I adapted the blondie base from my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, and if you’d like to take the chocolate flavor up a notch you can drop a handful of milk chocolate or semisweet chips into the batter (I’d do no more than 3/4 cup in order to not overwhelm the Nutella flavor… these are Nutella blondies, after all).

Once the batter is prepared, simply drop the Nutella by heaping spoonfuls over the batter and use a butterknife to swirl the chocolate/hazelnut spread through the blondie batter.

  1. This is more like a big cookie than a blondie. The Nutella wouldn’t mix in well due to how thick the batter was and half burnt on top.

  2. 5 stars
    I bake 5 days a week for volunteers at a soup kitchen. I have made so many excellent blondie recipes and this is another great one.
    One tip to offer. Microwave the Nutella for 30 seconds, then drop the spoonfuls. Easier to swirl.

  3. 5 stars
    What type of salt do you use for these? Kosher? I used table salt and they were delicious but I wanna be sure!

    1. Yes, these blondies freeze really well. Simply add them to an airtight box or bag and place in the freezer for 3 months long.

  4. 5 stars
    This recipe is amazing but I stuffed to swirl the Nutella it ended up in blobs, do you have any tips?

    1. When swirling the Nutella I like to use a fork or a knife to swirl it around in the blondies. Hope that helps you!

    1. The egg yolk helps bind the blondies and puff them up. You can leave it out but it is a little extra thing that makes these turn out best.

  5. You had me at NUTELLA. Man, I love a good blondie but here you are adding my favorite chocolate spread and BAM! I’m in the kitchen whipping up a batch.

  6. 5 stars
    great party-entertaining dessert since the twirls look so fun and appetizing, great idea, thank you!
