Nutella Magic Bars

Hello Dinners, Dishes and Desserts readers. I’m Roxana, the wanna be baker and photographer behind Roxana’s Home Baking. My blog is focus on baking everything from scratch. I’m a self-taught baker, learning more with every cup of flour I use. Most of the recipes found on my blog rely on simple techniques everyone can master with a little bit of patience. I also have a big sweet tooth, easily noticeable through the hundreds on desserts recipes I’ve shared. I have a slight addiction to chocolate; I could put some in soup if it’s up to me.
Homemade chocolate goodies is the best medicine.

Today I’m going to share a recipe for Nutella Magic Bars. Easy to make and hard to resist.

Nutella Magic Bars

The first time I made magic bar I was curious why they are called magic. Couple of hours later when I had my first bite I figured out why. They disappear as fast as you say “abracadabra”. They are one of the easiest treats to put together. Even the most novice baker can whip these bars in no time. The taste is out of this world good. You can’t go wrong with buttery crust topped with nutella, hazelnuts and more chocolate all baked in a pool of condensed milk until brown on top.

The fun part – you can play around with the ingredients to fit your taste buds.

The hardest part – waiting for these babies to cool before cutting them into bars

Yields 36

Loaded with Nutella, hazelnuts and chocolate chips these bars disappear quickly!

    I agree these look amazing. But spreading the nutella on the crust totally didn’t work for me. I have graham cracker crumbs smeared with Nutella everywhere. We’ll see how they turn out after they’ve baked and cooled. Definitely don’t try to spread. Extend the extra patience and drop it. I also wondering about blending it into the sweetened condensed milk.

  13. WOW, what a great variation on magic bars! Pinned – I know my family will love these!

  14. You just can’t go wrong with the words “Nutella” and “Magic”…I cannot wait to make these!

  15. These look awesome!!, i can not wait to make these, i adore nutella, and hazelnuts!!, thank you for posting these!!

  16. Hi, I made this but with a few changes- I ended up reducing the butter used in the crust so it was crisper and reduced the amount of hazelnuts in the filling, and they were lovely, thanks for sharing the recipe :)
