Oh, my heavens, Nutella Blondies are scrumptious beyond words! These delicious shortbread bars have Nutella drizzled over the top before baking. They are absolutely irresistible. I was busy baking all kinds of goodies for our Christmas Cookie Extravaganza this year and Nutella Blondies are one of those cookies that was included. Who doesn’t love Nutella, right? I thought it would be great on top of these blondies and I was right.
Okay, I tried a couple of versions of this recipe. I was hoping to swirl the Nutella into the cookie, but a shortbread base is too stiff. Instead, I drizzled softened Nutella spread over top of the crust layer before baking.
The swirls turned out lovely and these ended up being a real crowd pleaser. Nutella is too stiff to work with as is, so all I did was soften some in a bowl in the microwave for 20 to 30 seconds and by that time it could be drizzled over top of the blondie batter. While I chose to put the Nutella on in swirling patterns, anything you desire will work.
Nutella Blondies are great for any kind of tailgating party, potluck, baby shower or family gathering–wherever you have friends that love Nutella! Plus, they really are so very easy to make. They cook up beautifully without a lot of fanfare. If you’re looking for a delectable brownie for your next party, give Nutella Blondies a try.
Nutella Blondies are a terrific treat that will satisfy any sweet tooth craving.

Every bite will have you salivating!
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Place softened butter in a mixing bowl. Add oil, eggs, vanilla, sugar, powdered sugar, cream of tartar, baking soda and sea salt.
Mix with an electric mixer until smooth.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods.
Stir with a wooden spoon to combine.
Press mixture into a greased 12×19″ cookie sheet. Spoon out Nutella into a small bowl. Soften Nutella in microwave about 20-30 seconds or until spread can be drizzled. Drizzle Nutella over top of shortbread in swirling patterns.
Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely before cutting into bars.
Nutella Blondies are great for any kind of party.
