Fudge Brownies with Nutella Frosting


I haven’t shared a recipe in so long, okay maybe it has really only been two weeks, but cooking truly is one of my first loves, so I thought I would share something really simple with you today.. how about something with Nutella?  Brownies with Nutella?  A creamy Nutella frosting recipe with brownies… yeah, it sounds good to me too?


Okay, ya know I have to clarify first that I didn’t just jump on the Nutella train(if you are on Pinterest- come follow me there too, you’ve seen how many Nutella recipes there are nowadays)… I have been on it for years. (I guess my pant size would prove it, which is why I am back on the third day shred with Gillian…).  But ya know, I still need treats now and then, and the other day when I wanted some brownies I though it would be fun to whip up this Nutella frosting recipe. (recipe for the fudge brownies here).


In about 2 minutes flat, I had a nice fluffy frosting, it was so easy!  But, if you are brave, and your pockets are lined with cash (cuz holy cow Nutella is expensive…) will say this, I think straight Nutella would have been really good too!

Nutella Frosting Recipe:

1/2 cup butter (softened)

1 cup Nutella

1 1/2 cup powdered sugar

one shake salt

splash of milk (if needed)


Beat the Nutella and butter together until smooth.  Add the sprinkle of salt and the first 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, beat until combined.  Continue to add the powdered sugar a 1/2 cup at a time, beating between additions, until creamy and smooth.  Add a small splash of milk if necessary.


When your homemade brownies are cooled, spread the frosting evenly… and enjoy (Oh and please give this brownie recipe a try, it is necessary I think it take 2 minutes more than a bagged mix… and is SO worth it! This is coming form a girl who has preferred brownie mixes her whole life…)

    We love Nutella in our house! My girls often request it on toast, instead of peanut butter. I also like to make chocolate layer cakes, with Nutella spread between the layers. Soooo good. I’ve always used Nutella “as is” so I’m excited to give this recipe a try. Thanks for posting!

    What’s up friends, good piece of writing and pleasant urging commented at this place, I am truly enjoying by these.

    I used dairy-free spread instead of butter (already has the right consistency) and didn’t add any sugar – I find nutella sweet enough. Had to stick the icing in the fridge for a bit so it wouldn’t go too soft but oh was it YUM. Went perfectly well on top of my orange muffins for a Jaffa effect!

    I used a small amount of the frosting spread on French toast(it was amazing) and then used the rest to frost some box brownies! It’s was very tasty. I also used generic Nutella from Aldi as its a bit more nutty :)
