Caramel and Nutella Brownies

caramel nutella brownies
We love our caramel brownie recipe, but it takes far too long. This caramel and nutella brownies recipe goes much faster and it’s not as crazy rich as the other recipe.

We especially like that the brownies are chewy. That’s a big deal at our house. We don’t want cake, we want chewy brownies!!! And the delicious nutella on top is way easier than frosting a brownie!

Is Butterscotch the Same As Caramel?

Butterscotch and caramel are two very different things.

Caramel is a mix of white granulated sugar, heavy whipping cream, butter, and a dash of vanilla.

Butterscotch, is made with brown sugar instead of granulated sugar.


Is Nutella Made With Hazelnuts?

Nutella is described as a chocolate and hazelnut spread, although it is mostly made of sugar and palm oil.

The ingredients do include hazelnuts.


How Long Will Brownies Keep?

Fresh brownies will keep up to 4 days at room temperature.

Brownies should be well wrapped in plastic or foil and left uncut for a longer storage period.
