How to make Chocolate Chip Nutella Stuffed Cookies

My go-to cookie dough recipe uses white and brown sugar, and an extra egg yolk to give these cookies a soft and chewy texture. If you’re interested, I’ve talked in detail here about how to make cookies super soft and chewy.

You will need to chill the cookie dough for at least an hour.

Step 2: Freeze the Nutella ‘middles’

Drop spoonfuls of Nutella onto a lined baking tray and freeze. It may sound strange to freeze the Nutella, but this will make assembling the cookies easier and stop the Nutella from hardening in the oven.

Step 3: Stuff the cookies with Nutella

This part is actually pretty easy 😅

You’ll want to use a heaped tablespoon of cookie dough per cookie. Wrap the cookie dough around the frozen Nutella ‘middles’, making sure the Nutella is concealed. They will end up looking like balls of cookie dough, with that secret Nutella filling inside!

Now press a handful of chocolate chips into the top of each cookie dough balls.

Step 4: Bake for 12-14 mins and leave to set

Look for a golden outer edge with a pale, underbaked middle.

Resist the urge to tuck in straight away and leave the cookies to cool on the baking tray for at least 15 minutes. During this time the cookies will continue to cook and the middle of the cookie will set up and turn super chewy.

It’s as simple as that! Your Chocolate Chip Nutella Stuffed Cookies are ready and it’s time to tuck in 😍

  • Place on the baking tray and press a handful of chocolate chips into the top.
  • Repeat this step until all the cookie dough is used up. The recipe should make roughly 10 cookies. Remember to leave 5-8cm of space between each cookie ball, so they have room to spread out.
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes. The outside of the cookies should be golden brown but the middle should look pale in colour and be slightly underbaked.
  • Leave the cookies to cool completely on the baking tray for at least 15 minutes. They will continue to cook and firm up as they cool down.
