Soft Nutella Chocolate Cookies

I’ve made many, many Nutella cookie variations and here is my latest one: Soft Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies.

I took my favorite soft chocolate chip cookie recipe and adapted it to incorporate Nutella. The cookies came out soft and slightly fudgy. The cookies are really good, though the Nutella flavor is really light. The Nutella causes the middle of the cookies to have a little fudginess. They also stay soft for a really long time thanks to the pudding mix.

I’d make these again, though I might swirl some Nutella directly into the dough next time for a more intense Nutella flavor. If you like these cookies, you might like my Soft Nutella Cookies, too.

  1. Sometimes it’s just one word in a recipe that draws you in for more. It was nutella this time. This is just the cookie for the holidays!

  2. ohhh these do look good, but i agree that swirling nutella directly into the dough would be a yummy take on these!

  3. What can I replace by 1 (3.4 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix?
    I’m French and i live in Germany. I think I do not have this product in supermarkets at home.
    Thank u…
    Nice picture ^^

    • Someone previously commented on another one of my posts and said she was able to find a recipe/substitute for dry pudding mix. You might want to try googling and searching for substitute for dry pudding mix. Hope you find something! Someone else also told me that the recipe worked even without the pudding mix, but I haven’t yet tried that.

  4. These are awesome, my kids love them! I did run into a problem. I followed the recipe exactly but I had cake mix looking “dough”, I went ahead and tried to bake them and they were flat and burnt lol. So I added 1 1/2 cups more flour and they were fine :). Thanks for all your recipes though, my daughter has CF AND is allergic to peanut butter. So I’m always trying your recipes for nutella so I can get some high calorie snacks into her!:)

  5. Omg these are awesome. My daughter and I forgot the pudding mix and chocolate chips but they came out great!!!
