Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

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” cookiesNutella 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.

Ingredients

  • All-purpose flour
  • Baking soda
  • Butter
  • Granulated sugar
  • Brown sugar
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla
  • Chocolate chips
  • Nutella

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.

Storage Tips

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.

  1. Hi Kirby 
    Just made these delicious treats And everyone loved them but I added tim tams and white choclate but the problem is I can’t stoP devouring them 
    And neither can my friends help me 
    !,,

  2. Hi, my daughter wants me to make these for her school break up party but wants me to bring them in warm. If we made them and stored them in fridge overnight and cooked them the next day, do you think they’ll still turn out right?

  3. Hi Kirbie! I love your recipes, they’re always so fun and unique. I was wondering for this one, though, if they would be fine to serve the next day at room temperature? I wouldn’t imagine the Nutella would harden or anything; it would maybe stay the same consistency that it is in the jar at room temp, which is to say, kinda gooey, albeit not molten and delicious.
    Sorry if I’m asking about something you haven’t dealt with! Thank you!

    • I would maybe heat them up just before serving. The Nutella tends to get a little more solid by the next day. I mean it’s still a spread but it won’t be as gooey as if you heat them for a few seconds in the microwave or a few minutes in the oven

      • Ah, thank you so much! I had a couple at room temp and they weren’t so bad, just not gooey.
        Also if people are having trouble getting Nutella off the spoon and into the cookie, what I did was put it in a piping bag and piped little blobs of it into the flattened dough, then sealed it up.
        Thank you again for all your awesome recipes and inspiration!

  4. I do not have brown sugar…. Can i just use white sugar instead?
