Nutella Cheesecake Brownies

Nutella. Cheesecake. Brownies. What more can I offer you?

This is one of the worst photos I’ve ever taken and really, I wouldn’t even post it except that these are so good. They’re a perfect treat to whip up for your weekend festivities. My only complaint is that it dirties three bowls — one for the brownies, one for the Nutella cheesecake mixture and one for the plain cheesecake mixture. You could certainly combine the cheesecake mixtures into one, but I love the contrast of the two swirled together. And the plain cheesecake helps cut the sweetness of the other layers.

Also, if you’re in shortcut mode you can use a boxed brownie mix for the bottom layer. Just bake according to the package directions (not mine).

Very important…store in the refrigerator but serve at room temp (they taste so much better!).

Nutella Cheesecake Brownies

Nutella Cheesecake Brownies


Cream Cheese Topping:

8 ounces cream cheese

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 cup Nutella


3/4 cups flour

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

4 tablespoons softened butter

1 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 large eggs


Pre-heat oven to 350'

Line an 8x8 pan with foil leaving 2 inch overhang on all sides. Spray foil w/ cooking spray.

To make the cheesecake mixture, cream the sugar and cream cheese until blended. Scrape bowl and add the egg and vanilla and beat until the topping is nice and creamy. Remove half of cream cheese mixture into another bowl. Stir in Nutella.

To make the brownie mixture, sift flour, cocoa, salt and baking powder into a small sized bowl. In a mixing bowl, cream sugar and butter, add eggs one at a time, beat well then add vanilla. Add dry ingredients to the butter mixture and beat just until combined.

Spread the brownie batter into the bottom of an 8 x 8 baking dish. Randomly drop spoonfulls of both cream cheese toppings over the brownie batter. Swirl with a knife, taking care to swirl only the top layer (not brownies).

Bake at 350 for 40 to 50 minutes set in the center.
