I can’t believe it took me this long to make these cookies. I’ve made so many variations of nutella cookies and stuffed chocolate chip cookies. But it wasn’t until now that I thought to make a chocolate chip cookie stuffed with nutella filling.
I’ve pretty much made every variation possible leading up to these cookies. I’ve made nutella swirl chocolate chip cookies, “nutella chip” cookies, nutella lava chocolate cookies. When I told FH about this idea his reaction was “haven’t you done this already?”
When I made nutella chocolate chip cookies previously, one of the problems I had was that the nutella flavor got lost in the cookies. Not with these cookies since they are stuffed with pure nutella filling.
I absolutely loved the nutella lava cookies I made a few months back. This cookie combines two great loves: lava cookies and chocolate chip cookies.
Nutella stuffed chocolate chip cookies
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup nutella
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, continue to beat until well combined.
2. Place flour and baking soda into a bowl; mix to combine then add slowly to wet ingredients along with the chocolate chips.
3. Scoop a large spoonful of dough and flatten it into the palm of your hand. Add in some nutella into the middle, about 1-2 tsp. Then fold cookie dough back up so that it seals and covers the nutella entirely.
4. Bake for about 10-14 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Remove and let cool for a few minutes before serving.
