  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • ¾ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate wafers or chips
  • cups white sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract


  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • ¾ cup Nutella
  • 3-4 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 375F. Spray a 36-count mini muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk flour, salt, baking powder, and cocoa powder. Set aside.
  • In another medium bowl, combine butter, semi-sweet chocolate chips and dark chocolate wafer. Melt in the microwave over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • In a large bowl, beat sugar and eggs until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla extract. Stir in melted chocolate. Slowly stir in flour mixture until just incorporated.
  • Spoon batter into prepared muffin tin, filling about 3/4 full.
  • Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until brownies are set. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely in muffin tin.
  • To make the nutella frosting, beat butter in a large bowl with an electric hand mixer or stand mixer with fitted paddle attachment until light and creamy, about 2-3 minutes. Add in powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, until incorporated.
  • Add Nutella, heavy cream, and vanilla. Beat for about 3-4 minutes, or until light and creamy. Pipe or spoon frosting on top of cooled brownie bites.
