Recipe: Nutella Cookie Cups – Two Bite Brownie Edition!

Author: DaisyChubb | Filed under: Recipes

Out of Nutella? I buy mine for SUPER cheap at Amazon!

Yep, here it is folks! The gooey, chocolatey brownie edition of Nutella Cookie Cups! All the Nutella you love, with a chocolate almond brownie base. They ended up with serious 2 bite brownie texture, which I loooove. Everyone else loved them too!

Seriously make these. You will be loved. Take them to the picnic! Take them to the work potluck! Take them to family brunch! The possibilities are endless because they are extremely portable and even more extremely yummy. Just sayin 😉


Recipe Tips:

+ Use a shot glass to press your baked cookies down as soon as they come out of the oven. It creates a perfect hole for your Nutella to melt in! You can also use a spoon, just be sure to leave enough cookie around the edge to keep the goo in. Also – do not use your thumb! Just covering my bases 😉

+ When you put your tbsp of Nutella into the warm cups, don’t touch it at first. Just plop it in and let the warm cookie work it’s magic. After you fill them all- go back to the first one and you’ll find it’s perfectly melted, so give it a swirl with your spoon and your cups will be poifect. At first the Nutella is nice and melty – be sure to eat at least one cup this way! After a few hours the Nutella solidifies again, but creates this great seal that keeps the cookie moist and amazing. Also makes them very portable! They kept for a few days – they may even keep longer – the trick is making them last that long!

+ After the cookie cups have cooled (alliteration!), give them a gentle twist and then should pop right out of the muffin tin. If not, use a butter knife to gently pry along the sides and they should be picture perfect! Don’t be afraid to let them cool quite a bit before you get them out – the brownies are a little harder than the cookie cups. Grease your mini muffin tin well!


Nutella & Almond Two Bite Brownies (Chocolate Cookie Cups)

A spin-off of the original Nutella Cookie Cups!
Original Peanut Butter Nutella Cookie Cup Recipe from Barbara Bakes

Makes 3 dozen mini brownies (I make one batch at a time and keep the dough in the freezer)


1 cup softened butter
1 cup white sugar
¾ cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
¾ cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup chopped/slivered almonds (optional), add mini chocolate chips or walnuts instead,
whatever you like!
30 tsps Nutella(depending on how much you use)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease mini muffin tin.

In large bowl, cream butter with both sugars until smooth. Add vanilla and eggs one at a time – beat until eggs are fully incorporated and batter is light and fluffy.

In separate bowl, mix dry ingredients (flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt). Gradually add dry ingredients to wet mixture, stirring until a deep brown batter has formed – it will be quite sticky. Fold in nuts (or other additions) until incorporated.

Take about 1 tbsp of batter and roll it into a ball (around 1-inch thick). Place in mini muffin tin and bake for 12-14 minutes (until tops no longer appear wet). Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes.

With a small shot glass, or similar shaped object, firmly press down on the center of each brownie to create a crater. Spoon around 1 tsp of Nutella into each crater. Let sit for about 30 seconds to let Nutella melt, then swirl it around with the end of a spoon to create a uniform swirl.

Let cool about 20 minutes, then you can remove the brownies from the tin by running a butter knife around the edges. It should just pop out! If it doesn’t come out very easily, let cool for another half hour and try again.

Enjoy loves! Life is good!

  2. Fabulous idea! I’ll have to give this version a try.

  4. Thanks Barbara!
    You’ve honestly inspired me to make all sorts of cookies and put Nutella in them.
    Actually for this recipe I was originally going to make a Raspberry Icing for the filling, but it didn’t work at all so I went back to good ol’ Nutella – they were delicious!

  5. We just got your package! Thank you so much!

    I’m totally going to try this, and use Biscoff Spread (it’s a cinnamon graham cookie spread) instead of nutella! Brownies with cookie goo, yes please!

  6. DaisyChubb says:
  7. So glad you got it! Enjoy the teas, I think you will get a kick out of them 😉

    And yes! I wish we had Biscoff here – i think it might be an American thing ; 3;

  8. Bah, I just tried to send you one through Amazon. Evidently food items shipped internationally is on their no-no list.

  9. DaisyChubb says:
  10. It’s sad but true ; 3;
    Thanks for trying! It’s the same reason I can’t get the sweet tea on ThinkGeek… I just want the tins 😉

  11. I totally bought those just for the tins.

  12. When you say white sugar, is it just regular granulated sugar or confectioners sugar (the powder one)??

  13. DaisyChubb says:
  14. It’s just granulated sugar (as opposed to brown sugar)
    If I even use confectioners/powder sugar I usually refer to it as icing sugar :)

    Hope that helps!

  15. Thank you it does hel a lot! I made them last night and they are delicious.

  16. OMG – I made these today for a group of 22 ladies. They said they were swooning. I’m a pretty good baker but have never goon the “yums” I got today. thank you for sharing.

  17. never “gotten”

  18. Do these freeze well?

  19. DaisyChubb says:
  20. Absolutely!

  21. Could you use a boxed brownie mix as a shortcut? Just curious.

  22. DaisyChubb says:
  23. Yeah why not!

  24. Do you sift the flour?

  25. Nope, but if you usually do, go for it!
