Nutella Drop Biscuits

Nutella fans, I have a special treat for you today. Nutella Drop Biscuits. Easy homemade biscuits with Nutella swirled in. How good does that sound? Let me tell, you REAL good. Trust me, I know. I sampled one…or two, or three. I lost count. Josh is allergic to Nutella so he couldn’t help me out and we aren’t giving Caleb sugar yet, so I taste tested these all by myself. I wanted to make sure they were good enough for the blog so I had to eat more than one. I was just doing biscuit research. Tough job, I know:)

I love making drop biscuits because they are so easy. You don’t have to roll and cut, just take a spoon and plop the biscuit dough on a baking sheet. I swirled in a healthy amount of Nutella and added sprinkled sea salt on the top of the biscuits before putting them in the oven.

The biscuits are buttery and soft with a sweet swirl of Nutella. Chocolate, hazelnut, with hint of sea salt-divine! These Nutella Drop Biscuits would be a great addition to any brunch table. They are also great as an afternoon snack or dessert. You really can’t go wrong with Nutella Biscuits any time of the day.

Get out a jar of Nutella and make these Nutella Drop Biscuits. I know you have a jar hidden in your “secret” stash. I promise I won’t look while you get it out. Your secret is safe with me.

I know I didn’t share my biscuits, but I think you should. It is November after all, the season of sharing and giving. Your friends and family will love you even more after eating one of these decadent Nutella Drop Biscuits.  They are drop dead amazing!

Nutella Drop Biscuits

Yield: 10 large biscuits

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 12-15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Easy drop biscuits with a sweet Nutella swirl!


2 1/4 cups all-purpose Gold Medal flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup Nutella
Sea salt, for sprinkling on biscuits, optional


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Mix in cold butter with your fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add buttermilk and stir with a spatula until just combined. With a knife, gently swirl the Nutella into the biscuit dough.

3. Drop round spoonfuls of dough, about three tablespoons, onto prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle biscuits with sea salt, if desired. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until tops are slightly golden brown. Remove from oven, let cool to room temperature and serve.

Note-I updated the recipe to only use 1/2 cup of Nutella. Some readers said that 1 cup of Nutella was too much.

    You cannot go wrong with Nutella baked right into these fluffy biscuits. They are so pretty, Maria!

    And poor Josh, he can’t have PB or Nutella. That’s a cruel trick!

  2. Now these are a dangerous biscuit! Had Nutella the first time this summer while in Paris! Wish I never tried the stuff! I am officially addicted!!!!

  3. Jen @ Savory Simple — November 5, 2012 @ 7:38 am

    These look insanely decadent! I don’t think I’d be able to keep them around, I’d go on a biscuit binge.

  4. KatCakes - BA — November 5, 2012 @ 7:38 am

    Allergic to Nutella?? Oh no!!
    I must try these, every recipe that contains Nutella must be tried! Thank you!! :)

  5. yummy, they sound great and I have never heard of a drop biscuits before

  6. Elizabeth@ Food Ramblings — November 5, 2012 @ 8:34 am

    Nutella in biscuits- I’m in!

  7. Joanne — November 5, 2012 @ 8:35 am

    You know, if you ever need help doing biscuit research…I am SO your girl. In a major way. Especially if it involves nutella. :)

  8. Jill — November 5, 2012 @ 8:53 am

    Wow. These look perfect! Delicious! Yummy.

    If you ever need some help taste testing, let me know! 😉

    These are actually really beautiful! and they sounds so good Maria!

  11. Laurie {Simply Scratch} — November 5, 2012 @ 9:04 am

    Oh my word Maria… the Nutella Swirl is genius! Thanks for making my Monday :)

  12. Kat — November 5, 2012 @ 9:14 am

    Would I be able to use powdered buttermilk to make these? Buttermilk (actually any milk) is getting hard to come by where I am in NJ right now. I was hoping to make these for some of the volunteers and displaced residents of my town from Hurricane Sandy.

  13. Heather — November 5, 2012 @ 9:14 am

    These look amazing! I just might have to keep buttermilk on hand to whip these up, since you’re right in that I always have a jar of Nutella hidden in the back of the cupboard! Did you use liquid buttermilk or have you tried the dry buttermilk?

  14. Erica — November 5, 2012 @ 9:14 am

    Yumm!! The middle of those look amazing! Yayyy nutella

  15. Lori @ RecipeGirl — November 5, 2012 @ 9:30 am

    These are killing me. Want for breakfast NOW!

  16. Cookbook Queen — November 5, 2012 @ 9:48 am

    These are seriously gorgeous. I wouldn’t share either!!

  17. Jen @ Cuddles and Chaos — November 5, 2012 @ 9:51 am

    These sound dangerous. I don’t think I could be held accountable for my eating habits with this deliciousness in my face and under my nose. YUM!

  18. Joanie Zisk — November 5, 2012 @ 10:04 am

    Nutella in just about anything is going to be delicious and what a great idea to put it in biscuits. These will be great anytime of the day, I’m thinking that for an afternoon treat these would be perfect!

  19. I’m glad I’m not the only one that’s holding back the sugar from their baby! You’d think that would help me eat better as well, but it only works sometimes…

  20. anyone4curryandotherthings — November 5, 2012 @ 10:07 am

    wonderful, my two girls are now again back to their colleges but I will have to make them and send 2 CARE parcels off to them soon. Thank you!!! Ciao Carina

  21. These would definitely be dangerous for me to have around the house, they looks so good! Can’t wait to give these a try!

  22. Wow a whole cup, these have to be fantastic! I am Nutella obsessed, so I am all over these!

  23. Mandie @ Oh So Decadent — November 5, 2012 @ 11:03 am

    I never thought to put Nutella in biscuits, what a great idea! They do sound like a wonderful breakfast idea. Perfect with a large cup of coffee :).

  24. cathy @ Noble Pig — November 5, 2012 @ 12:28 pm

    What a great idea, I’ll have with some nice black coffee!

  25. Cookin' Canuck — November 5, 2012 @ 12:54 pm

    Oh my, those look beyond fabulous. What a great afternoon treat these would be for my boys.

  26. Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes — November 5, 2012 @ 1:06 pm

  27. Jessica@AKitchenAddiction — November 5, 2012 @ 1:14 pm

    What a great idea! These would be perfect with my morning coffee!

  28. Like you said this month is all about sharing and giving, could you please post me some on my way :) I love nutella so much that i have stopped buying them now these biscuits are tempting me to goto the store STAT!!

  29. Connie — November 5, 2012 @ 2:28 pm

    These look delicious! But like your husband, I cannot partake in Nutella consumption. I wonder if my favorite chocolate peanut butter will work…

  30. Claudia — November 5, 2012 @ 3:09 pm

    I think I may be one of the very few that has not tried Nutella yet. I guess I’ll have to try it soon.

  31. Katie @ Blonde Ambition — November 5, 2012 @ 4:28 pm

    These sound amazing! Love love love Nutella. My college roommate was allergic to it too…oh well, more for us!

  32. These look crazy good! Love the idea of adding Nutella to biscuits… or anything for that matter! :)

  33. Sues — November 5, 2012 @ 6:48 pm

    I’m a big biscuit fan as is, but these look WAY better than the average biscuit! Perfect breakfast with a cup of coffee :)

  34. Lynna — November 5, 2012 @ 6:52 pm

    These look INCREDIBLE! What an awesome idea!

  35. Julia {The Roasted Root} — November 5, 2012 @ 7:29 pm

    These are wild and crazy biscuits and I love it! They’re cool and natural looking and I hope you’re kidding about Josh’s Nutella allergy because I’d willingly go into an allergic reaction just to have a taste. Fun idea, lady!

  36. Maura @ My Healthy 'Ohana — November 5, 2012 @ 8:13 pm

    Oh wow, I don’t have nutella, but I do have cookie butter, so I think I’ll try that :)

  37. Lucy Lean — November 5, 2012 @ 9:56 pm

    I love the notion of “just doing biscuit research’ – full title Biscuit Researcher – sounds great to me.

  38. Karly — November 5, 2012 @ 11:14 pm

    I’m a big fan of biscuit research. It might be helpful to have someone else confirm your results, yes? I’ll get right on that.

  39. Linda | The Urban Mrs — November 5, 2012 @ 11:58 pm

    Oh, I believe you! Nutella makes everything different. Never thought of combining it in a biscuit, though. Yum!

  40. sara — November 6, 2012 @ 12:09 am

    These look so delicious! Love love love Nutella. :)
