Nutella Brownie Cups


Nutella Brownie Cups

We had a very busy weekend around here!  My parents came to visit for a few days, so we have been busy with them.  My 7 year old is going to be 8 very soon, so there was lots of birthday celebration going on as well.  My brother and SIL came up for the day to help celebrate.  My 7 year old had a flag football game last night, and another one tonight.  So given all the busy going on, I am all about easy right now!

Nutella Brownie Cups

You can not get much easier than these brownies.  4 ingredients.  Yes, that is right, there are just 4 ingredients in here.  One of which is the M&M’s, and you could totally leave that out!  Or use nuts, or chocolate chips, or a combination of the two if you want to go crazy!  But trust me, you need to try these!

You all know my love for Nutella, so when Katrina posted her Nutella Oat Breakfast Cookie I was all over them!  I was craving brownies though, and I knew Nutella worked great in cookies with just a couple ingredients, so why not brownies?  So just now, I am going to check out Katrina’s recipe, and I see she got her idea from Nest of Posies.  Looks like Nest of Posies and I had the same idea!

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup M&M's


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 8-10 cups of a muffin pan with liners.
  2. In a bowl combine flour, nutella, and eggs. Mix until well combined. Fold in most of the M&M's, leaving a few to put on top.
  3. Scoop batter into muffin cups. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Be careful not to over bake these. They are best slightly underdone.

  1. Nutella + M&M’s is definitely a winning combo! I made these without the M&M’s a while ago, they’s so easy you just can’t beat it :)

  2. I love the brownie cup idea, these look so good!

  3. Forreal? Only four ingredients for a chewy, fudgy brownie cup stuffed with M&M’s? I die. Okay, I hope I don’t die because I want like seventeen of these, but really .. SO awesome!

  4. Heaven help me! These are far, far toooo easy and chocolately my dear. I see myself in big trouble with an empty glass of milk very, very soon!

  5. So delicious and decadent! These look amazing, Erin!

  6. Can’t go wrong with a recipe that only has 4 ingredients, one of them being nutella. These look fun and super tasty!

  7. I can’t believe how simple this recipe it. It is hard to imagine how that can be done, but you did it. These look super tasty.

  8. There is so much about this that I love. And that fact that they’re so simple makes them pretty much perfect. Can’t wait to try them.

  9. How cool are these brownie thingos! Looks like your family is pretty full-on and you’ve still got time for a nifty treat.

  10. What a cool way to make brownies using nutella. I love the pop of color with the M&Ms too. :)

  11. I love an easy dessert! This is one of those recipes you could make on a weeknight just using the ingredients in your pantry. Great idea!

  13. Oh yum, these look so good! I love how easy to make they sound too!

  14. Leaving out the M&M’s would be blasphemy! I love how easy these are and I just want to dive in!

    Only four ingredients for something as delicious as this? It’s nearly too good to be true! I tried these out a while ago, and (you’re right), they are best slightly undone.
