Chocolate Brownies with Nutella Buttercream are rich and dark chocolate fudgy brownies topped with a sweet and creamy Nutella buttercream.
These chocolate brownies with Nutella buttercream are based off my fudgy brownies recipe =. They’re rich and dark, ultra fudgy and turn out perfect every time!
Top these with a Nutella buttercream that is equal parts creamy, sweet and Nutellery(?). The buttercream is sweet of course which I find pairs beautifully with the rich and dark chocolate flavours of the brownies.
The beauty with the buttercream is the Nutella flavour isn’t lost. There is plenty of chocolate/hazelnut flavour to go around.
A fun addition to these brownies would be chopped, roasted hazelnuts to really play on the hazelnut chocolate vibe of these gorgeous chocolate brownies.
