  • Place in the freezer.

Assemble and bake the cookies

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C and line two large baking trays with greaseproof paper.
  • Take the Nutella middles out of the freezer and the cookie dough out of the fridge.
  • Take a heaped tablespoon of cookie dough and flatten it into a round disc shape. Place a frozen lump of Nutella in the middle and wrap the cookie dough around the Nutella so it's completely covered and concealed. It should look like a ball of cookie dough.

  • 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.
