1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Prepare a brownie baking pan by spraying it with a nonstick spray. Or, use a brownie baking pan with a nonstick surface.
3. Mix white flour, cocoa powder, and salt in a medium-sized bowl. Set aside.
4. Place butter and Nutella in a medium-sized saucepan. Melt butter and Nutella over low-medium heat, stirring continuously to reduce the likelihood of scorching. Remove from heat to cool for 5 minutes.
5. Add white sugar and beaten eggs into the melted Nutella-butter mixture. Stir together to combine ingredients.
6. Add flour-cocoa mixture to saucepan. Stir everything until combined well. Do not over stir.
7. Scrape chocolate and hazelnut brownie batter into prepared brownie baking pan. Top with scattered hazelnut pieces. Place pan in the oven.
8. Bake chocolate hazelnut brownies for 35 minutes. Remove from oven to test with a toothpick or the blade of a knife. A few crumbs on the toothpick or blade are normal due to the crumbly brownie consistency.
9. Cool brownies in pan for at least 45-60 minutes.
10. Cut brownies and store in a container or plate and eat immediately.
Are you having problems with brownies sticking to your pan even after using a nonstick spray? Try lining your pan with aluminum foil first to minimize the problem. It makes cleanup much easier, too.
