"Mommy Needs A Drink" Brownies aka "Nutella Makes It All Better"

It's been a trying afternoon in my house. Since a glass of wine isn't a good idea when home alone with two small kids, I remembered the brownie mix and the jar of Nutella in the pantry. I tweeted about making Nutella brownies and got several responses. I decided a quick blog post was the fastest way to share the instructions. There's not really a recipe to it.

Simply prepare your favorite brownie mix according to package directions. Spray a mini muffin pan (or 4) with baking spray. Place a heaping spoonful of brownie batter in the bottom of each well. Place about a teaspoon of Nutella on top and cover with another spoonful of brownie batter. Bake according to your mix's directions. I think baking cups might be helpful but I didn't have them handy. I only have one mini muffin pan so I poured the rest of my batter into a small baking dish to make regular brownies.

I wish I made this up but a friend shared this on Facebook recently. I don't think it was her idea either but I'm glad she passed it along.

Sorry, but I dug in before taking the shot. Once you try them, you won't blame me.

Update: definitely use muffin cup liners. However if they break, the brownies make an excellent ice cream topping, or so my husband says.



  1. I might have to make those tomorrow!

  2. super yum. A friend has gotten me hooked on brownie covered Oreos. Make up a batch of brownies, dip each and placed in a greased muffin tin and cook normally. I might need an intervention these are so good.

  3. Jenn, let me know how they work out for you.

    Heather, I didn't need to know that. :P I need to lose this baby weight x2 and neither one of these recipes is helping. That said, thanks for sharing! I see some of those in our future.

  4. I like to put a peanut butter cup in the middle of mine. I will have to try the nutella! :)
