Nutella Cream Cheese Brownies

I was kind of a baking machine this weekend. Not to mention I also made Kamil dinner twice. But this was the last of my baking spree because I was headed back to school and I needed something quick that I knew the girls on my floor would like. And since I know at least a few of them really like Nutella, I grabbed some while I was at the store and decided to make some Nutella brownies! With cream cheese and peanut butter chips 🙂

Nutella Cream Cheese Brownies

Adapted from Lovin From the Oven

Cream Cheese Topping

  • 5 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tbs. softened butter
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbs. flour
  • 1/4 cup Nutella

Brownie Batter

  • 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 stick of softened butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter chips
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350° F. Grease and line a 8 x 8 baking pan with cooking spray
  2. Cream together butter, sugar and flour. Add cream cheese and mix/blend until smooth. Scrape bowl and add the egg and beat until the topping is nice and creamy. Scrap bowl and add Nutella, beat about one minute or until the nutella is mixed into the cream cheese mixture completely. Set topping aside and mix brownie batter
  3. Sift flour, cocoa, salt and baking powder into a medium sized bowl. Set aside
  4. In a small bowl cream sugar and 1/2 stick of butter, add eggs one at a time, beat well then add vanilla
  5. Fold egg, sugar, butter and vanilla mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients. Mix in the milk chocolate and peanut butter chips
  6. Spread 3/4 of the brownie batter into the bottom of an 8 x 8 baking dish
  7. Randomly dollop the cream cheese topping over the brownie batter
  8. Randomly dollop the rest of the brownie batter on top of the cream cheese batter. Swirl with the tip of a knife
  9. Bake at 350° F for 40 to 50 minutes

Here is the first layer of the brownie batter

Then the cream cheese layer on top of that

Then finally the remaining brownie batter “swirled” into the cream cheese batter. I was in a bit of a rush at this point so I didn’t have time to perfect my swirl but I promise you it did not take away from the taste!


Obviously my pictures are nothing compared to hers, but my good friend Kaleigh who also happens to be an amazing photographer made these brownies and let me upload the picture to my blog. Make sure you check out her flickr!

For my birthday, my mom also got me a bite-size brownie pan so I made these in a mini version as well!
