What is better than nutella lava cookies? How about nutella lava brownies.

Imagine fudgy chewy brownies, oozing with nutella.

These came out just as good as I hoped and were a big hit with the family. Being a big brownie lover, I think I may like these even more than the nutella lava cookies I previously made.

I made the brownies in muffin molds so that each one could hold a surprise of nutella inside.

These brownies are so easy to put together and would be a perfect quick treat to bring to a party.

Nutella lava brownies
Author: Kirbie’s Cravings
Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 20 mins
Total time: 35 mins
  • One box of your favorite brownie mix
  • Nutella
  1. Mix brownie according to instructions. Grease 18 muffin tins.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 F. Scoop batter into each muffin tin about 1/3 full. Add a generous dollop of nutella in the middle of each muffin tin (about 1 tsp). Add more brownie batter on top, until each muffin tin is about 2/3 full.
  3. Bake about 20 minutes. A knife inserted near the side of the brownies (not where the nutella is) should come out clean.
  4. Let muffins cool for about 5 minutes,and then use a plastic knife around the edges to loosen and remove brownies. Serve while warm.

    I love these, the only problem I’ve had each time ive made them I’ve had trouble with the bottoms falling out of them. Have you encountered this or am I doin something wrong?

      I have not encountered this. I would suggest either putting more brownie batter at the bottom before putting in the nutella (so maybe put in 2/3 batter then nutella and then the final 1/3 of batter) or perhaps putting a little less nutella? Hope this helps!

    If I wanted to serve these a few days later, how should I go about heating it up without making it dry or stale?
