How to make Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these cookies. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.
- Plain flour
- Baking powder
- Baking soda
- Unsalted butter
- Light brown sugar
- Caster/granulated sugar
- Large egg
- Vanilla extract
- Chocolate chips: You can use milk, dark or semi-sweet.
- Nutella: Or any other hazelnut chocolate spread. You’ll need 14 teaspoons which equals to about 140g.
To make these cookies, start by scooping out 14 teaspoons of Nutella and placing them onto a baking tray lined with parchment or wax paper. Freeze until the Nutella is solid – about 1 hour.
Next, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cornflour, and salt. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter and sugars until combined. Add the egg and vanilla, and whisk until combined.
Add the dry ingredients, mix until just combined, then fold in the chocolate chips.
Roll the dough into 2oz balls. Flatten out the balls, and place 1 teaspoon of the frozen Nutella into the centres. Form the dough back into balls, sealing the Nutella inside.
Place the dough balls onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat, and pop them in the freezer for 1 hour. Freezing is completely optional, but will result in thicker cookies.
Bake for 12 – 14 minutes. The cookies will still be very soft, but will firm up as they cool. Allow to cool on the baking tray for 10 – 15 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
NOTE: These cookies are extremely soft and delicate the day they are baked due to the Nutella centre. I like to leave them overnight at room temperature or even in the fridge to allow them to firm up.
The cookies pictured in this post were refrigerated overnight (kept on the wire rack), and then left at room temperature for an hour or two.
The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.
NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
These Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies are:
- super quick and easy to make
- soft, thick, and chewy
- stuffed with a thick layer of Nutella
- loaded with melty chocolate chips
How long will these cookies last? These cookies will stay fresh kept in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
Can I freeze these cookies? Yes, but I always recommend freezing the dough balls instead so you’ll get freshly-baked cookies every time. Cookie dough balls can be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days, or frozen for up to 3 months. Bake straight from frozen.
