Nutella – The star ingredient of this recipe and the ingredient that makes these Brownies different from the other Brownies, Nutella. I just love the chocolaty and gooey flavor it adds to the Brownies.
Instant Coffee Powder – I also add a little coffee powder, as it adds to the taste and makes it even more delicious. But this is completely optional, you can even skip it.
Other Ingredients – Other than Nutella, you will need basic Brownie ingredients that includes all purpose flour, eggs, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, butter, sugar and vanilla extract.
Use high quality cocoa powder and vanilla extract for the best taste. Baking Powder will help brownie to lift up and will make it dense and soft from inside.
You can adjust the amount of sugar in the brownies as per your taste. You can even substitute it with brown sugar, coconut sugar or jaggery but the texture and taste will differ a bit.

Salt is optional, but I like how it balances out the extra sweetness in the Nutella Brownies.
