A delicious chocolate-hazelnut spread tops these sweet, nutty Chocolate Hazelnut Swirl Blondies. 


FOR THE BLONDIES: – 2 cups all-purpose flour – 1 teaspoon baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon salt – 1 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled – 1 & 1/2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar – 2 large egg – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – 3/4 cup finely chopped hazelnut FOR THE TOPPING: – 4 ounces cream cheese, softened – 1/4 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread* – 1/4 cup granulated sugar

Make the blondies: Heat the oven to 350°F. Prepare a 9"x 13"x 2" baking pan. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. 

Step 1


Butter, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla should be mixed well with a medium-speed electric mixer or spoon.  

Step 2

Slow mixer speed to low and add flour mixture slowly. Just combine. Mix in hazelnuts. Blondie batter should be evenly distributed in the pan. 

Step 3

To prepare the topping, mix cream cheese, chocolate-hazelnut spread, and sugar on medium speed with an electric mixer. 

Step 4

Drop 2–3 teaspoons of topping mixture over the blondies. Stir the chocolate mixture into the top third of the blondie batter with a thin knife. 

Step 5

Bake 30–35 minutes until a pick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cut blondies into bars after they cool in the pan.
