**Recipe post and photos updated July 2018. The name was changed from Nutella White Chocolate Blondies to Nutella White Chocolate Brownies.**
Nutella White Chocolate Brownies are sweet and fudgy white chocolate brownies with pockets of ooey gooey Nutella! If your day wasn’t already great, it’s about to get a whole lot better! How can it not with Nutella? Or white chocolate brownies for that matter?
From the moment first made these Nutella white chocolate ‘blondies’ (as they were known then) in 2016, I have been in love with them. If not slightly obsessed by them. They tick all the boxes for me. Nutella? Check! You know my love for Nutella by now. Like, SERIOUS love for Nutella. (Have you meet my friend Nutella Cheesecake?). Ultra gooey and fudgy comfort food? Double Check.
I loved these white chocolate brownies, my family and friends loved these white chocolate brownies but you, my dear audience didn’t really see these. Why? Because they were one of the first recipes on my blog and when I first started writing my blog the photos were less than stellar, my reach on social media and Google was next to zero and I was still learning the ins and outs of blogging. Now it has been over two years since I first posted the recipe and my reach has grown significantly (and counting! Woohoo!), I feel a lot more confident in my photography and, let’s be honest, I wanted an excuse to revisit this recipe again!
The brownies themselves are based on my White Chocolate Blondies recipe. Every time I have made these they have turned out sweet and fudgy with a crackly top and gooey centre. The perfect Yin to the regular chocolate brownies Yang. The addition of the Nutella creates balance in these white chocolate brownies. Coming across little pockets of ooey gooey Nutella when biting into the sweet, white chocolate is just heavenly!
In fact, the slightly under-baked brownies with runny Nutella is nothing short of heaven for me. If I’m not making these for other people or trying to take nice photos of the finished product you will find me digging straight into the middle of the pan with a spoon! Tell me I’m not the only one?
It’s important to freeze the blobs of Nutella before dotting them around the brownies. But freezing the Nutella you ensure that it only becomes runny. If you don’t freeze the Nutella you run the risk of cooking it which will dry up the Nutella or make it spread throughout the white chocolate brownies so you have a less-than-fudgy mess on your hands.
