  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 3/4 cup Nutella chocolate-hazelnut spread
  • 1 egg yolk


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 13- by 9-inch metal baking pan with foil, with foil edges hanging over the side. Spray the foil with cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together melted butter, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract. Stir flour mixture into sugar mixture until just combined. Add white chocolate chips and stir to combine.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together cream cheese, Nutella and egg yolk until completely combined.
  • Transfer blondie mixture to prepared pan and spread evenly. Drop the Nutella mixture by tablespoonfuls over the blondie mixture. Using a butter knife, swirl in the Nutella mixture.
  • Bake, rotating halfway through, until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out with a few crumbs, 25 to 28 minutes. When testing, be sure to insert the toothpick into a section with blondie, rather than Nutella.
  • Cool the blondies, in the pan, on a wire rack until completely cool, about 2 hours. Holding the overhanging foil, lift out the blondies. Cut into squares and serve.
