These chocolate chip cookies have a creamy Nutella center. They’re like a cross between a cookie and a lava cake and a decadent treat.
I can’t believe it took me this long to make these Nutella stuffed cookies. I’ve made so many variations of Nutella cookies and different kinds of stuffed chocolate chip cookies, but it wasn’t until now that I thought to make a chocolate chip cookie stuffed with Nutella.
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 chocolate chip cookie idea, his reaction was, “haven’t you done this already?”
What I love best about this recipe is that you get the creamy Nutella in every bite. Sometimes if you mix Nutella into cookie batter, it gets lost. Stuffing the cookies with it fixes that problem.
- All-purpose flour
- Baking soda
- Granulated sugar
- Brown sugar
- Chocolate chips
How to Stuff Cookies with Nutella
Once you’ve made the cookie dough (it’s an easy one-bowl recipe), it’s really easy to stuff each cookie dough balls with the Nutella.
Scoot a large spoonful of dough and flatten it in the palm of your hand. Add about one to two teaspoons of Nutella in the center and then wrap the dough around it, so it’s sealed inside. You don’t want it to seep out while they bake, so be sure to check it’s completely covered.
Bake the cookies and then let them cool before serving.
You can store these the same way as other chocolate chip cookies. Keep them in an airtight container, and they will keep well for several days at room temperature.
These cookies combine two great loves: lava cookies and chocolate chip cookies. If you’re a Nutella fan or know someone who is, you should give these a try.
