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!

Easy drop biscuits with a sweet Nutella swirl!
5 from 1 vote


  • 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 ½ cup of Nutella. Some readers said that 1 cup of Nutella was too much.

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

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

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

  6. 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.

  7. 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?

  8. 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!

  9. 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!

  10. 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…

  11. 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

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

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

  14. 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 :).

  15. 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!!

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

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

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

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

  20. 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!

  21. Oh wow, I don’t have nutella, but I do have cookie butter, so I think I’ll try that 🙂

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

  23. 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.

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

  25. I made these today. They are absolutely, fabulously delicious. They are like a chocolate babka or rugelach, but so easy to make. They were a perfect treat for the cold weather here in the mid-Atlantic. May I share them on my quilting blog?

  26. Those look beautiful! Such a bummer that Caleb and Josh couldnt help you out eating them 😉 Im sure that was hard on you! Feel free to send some this way!!

  27. These look great! Any idea if these would freeze well at all? Looking for things to make ahead before holiday company.

  28. Sorry, I just read the instructions. I shouldn’t have left them do long, but I still think that I’ll cook them at a lower temp next time. The nutella itself is burnt, not the dough.

  29. I made these this morning and they didn’t turn out very well. I think less nutella to start would be easier to ‘swirl’ into the dough. My biscuits melted and burnt a bit at 10 minutes. I want to try again and tweak it.

    The couple that turned out though were great!

    1. I reduced the Nutella to 1/2 cup in the recipe. I didn’t have a problem and I really love Nutella, but maybe 1/2 cup is best:) Thanks!

  30. I just made 2 batches of these, along with your Oatmeal White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies to give as gifts to a local lawyers office that my husband does business with. The cookies are amazing and these biscuits are addictive! Thank you for sharing.

  31. I just got done eating my second biscuit and I have one word for you….YUMMMMMY!! My only problem at this point it to not eat the rest myself :).

  32. Made these and won’t ever again. These were indeed very pretty but the taste was so floury. I would recommend using a chocolate chip dough and adding the nutella in instead of the chocolate chips.

  33. Made these for breakfast the other day and they were great! I used the 1/2 cup Nutella. They were so easy to put together. I will definitely be making them again. Thanks!

  34. Loved these! My son has a dairy allergy. Made them with Israeli chocolate spread and rice milk. He said the y tasted like donuts. He ate four in one sitting?

  35. I made these this morning for brunch and they were fantastic! Everyone loved them. Used the 1/2 cup of homemade Nutella, and we definitely spread some on the biscuits as well : ) Just started following your blog recently and have loved everything I’ve made so far- thank you!

  36. Made these for breakfast today and I loved how easy these were to make and their slight sweetness. I could see how more than 1/2 cup Nutella would be too much as the more Nutella rich biscuits have no structural integrity. Overall,  a great recipe.
