Nutella-Salted Shortbread Brownies

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate (I used 72% cacao)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup Nutella
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped roasted hazelnuts


To make the shortbread:
Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine the flour, brown sugar, and salt. Mix in the butter using a pastry blender, a fork, or your hands.
Press the mixture evenly into the bottom of an ungreased 9″x 13″x 2″baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the edges are lightly browned. Set aside.

Place the butter and chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt at half-power in the microwave in 30-second intervals until the butter is melted and chocolate melts when stirred. Stir until smooth. Allow to cool slightly.
Pour the chocolate/butter mixture into a large bowl. Add the sugar, and beat until combined. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Mix in the vanilla and Nutella.
Add the flour and salt, mixing just until combined. Stir in the hazelnuts.
Pour the brownie batter over the shortbread and spread evenly. Bake 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs. Cool completely in the pan on a wire rack before cutting into bars.
