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.

  • 1 box brownie mix
  • Nutella


  • Mix brownie according to instructions. Grease 18 muffin tins.
  • 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.
  • Bake about 20 minutes. A knife inserted near the side of the brownies (not where the nutella is) should come out clean.
  • Let muffins cool for about 5 minutes,and then use a plastic knife around the edges to loosen and remove brownies. Serve while warm.

  1. These made my mouthwater. Simple as that. Bookmarked!

  2. omg that looks good! time to put my brownie mixes to work!

  3. 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!

  4. Love this idea, will be making this for my boyfriend tonight! Thanks

  5. I just made these and added 1/2 tsp cinnamon. They are divine!

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