Nutella Cheesecake Brownies

August 28, 2011 § 60 Comments

Doesn’t that sound like the best dessert ever?

I think so! ;-)

The idea for these brownies first came to me a few months ago when I was finally able to have Nutella again after giving it up for Lent.  At the time I had 3 unopened jars sitting in the pantry just waiting to be made into something delicious. My favorite Nutella-Marbled Banana Bread was the obvious choice, but I wanted something a little more naughty.

I was thinking chocolate. Lots and lots of chocolate.

Oh, and cheesecake! Because cheesecake is delicious.

All baked into brownies and swirled with Nutella right before baking. Mmmm… :-D

The only problem was that I ate them all before I was able to take pictures and share the recipe with you. Oops! Luckily for you I still have 2 whole jars left so I can make this many more times!

Nutella Cheesecake Brownies


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¾ cups granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup + 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons water
  •  ¼ cup applesauce
  •  ½ cup canola oil
  • 1 block (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 6 tablespoons Nutella


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheti.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Pour in water, applesauce, and oil; mix until well blended. Spread evenly in a greased 9×13 inch baking pan.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Microwave on high for 10-15 seconds or until soft and easy to pour. Pour evenly over the brownie batter, drop Nutella by the spoonfuls on top, and make swirls in the batter with a knife.
  4. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting into squares.

Yield: 12 brownies

Oh yeah. I’ll definitely be making this many more times. Enjoy! :-D
