Behold, the Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Cookie.
There’s no denying this cookie has some serious star power. I posted a sneak peek photo on Instagram last week and all you Nutella fans out there were loving it!
These thick and chewy chocolate cookies come right off the back of my Big Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies that I introduced you to last week. But instead of being packed with chocolate chunks, these cookies are stuffed with teaspoons of Nutella.
So how do you get the Nutella all up in that cookie? It’s really quite simple. Just spoon out rough teaspoons of Nutella onto a baking sheet and pop them into the freezer for around 30 minutes or so. Meanwhile, you can get started on that soft chocolate cookie dough.
When you are ready to assemble your cookies, you simply wrap your cookie dough around your little Nutella nugget. Then it's time to bake. The result? An unsuspecting chocolate cookie that is hiding a delicious secret. Take one bite and you will be drowning in an avalanche of warm and gooey Nutella.
As mentioned, I actually photographed this recipe a week or so ago and I’ve been bursting at the seams to share them with you. I know you guys love Nutella stuffed everything just like me! And I will continue to add Nutella stuffed treats to our growing recipe collection here at SM.
From Nutella Stuffed Cookie Cups to Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Whoopie Pies, I can’t help but believe Nutella goes well in everything. It’s getting to the stage where I cannot have the stuff in my house other you will most likely find me hiding in the corner, like Winnie the Pooh, hand in the jar, eyes glazed over in sweet chocolate bliss.
Well I have had quite the week. I actually started a new job and it’s in FOOD. I’m just on a contract at the moment so I am going to enjoy it for however long it lasts. But I just can’t imagine getting sick of trawling through recipes every day and attending meetings where we discuss the latest food trends. Talk about #inspo.
And what’s even better? It’s a long weekend this weekend! Which means more food adventures for me. But I'm currently dreaming about these Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Cookies. Try them for me won't you?
Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Cookies
Makes 10-12 cookies
12 teaspoons Nutella
115 grams (1 stick or 1/2 cup) unsalted butter, room temperature
90 grams (1/2 cup) brown sugar
50 grams (1/4 cup) caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
140 grams (1 cup) plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cornflour or corn starch
40 grams (1/2 cup) cocoa powder
1 tablespoon milk
Line a small baking tray or plate with baking or parchment paper. Dollop 12 teaspoons of Nutella on the tray, ensuring they are an inch or two apart. Pop them in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.
Line two baking trays with baking paper. In a large mixing bowl, add the sugars and the butter and beat with an electric mixer until combined. Add the vanilla and egg and beat for a minute or so until smooth. Sift in the flour, baking soda, cornflour and cocoa into the mixture, and stir until combined and forms a chocolately dough. If its a little dry, add the tablespoon of milk.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (360 F). Get the Nutella nuggets out from the freezer. Grab a tablespoon of cookie dough, divide it into two pieces, flatten one side and place a frozen ball of Nutella on top, then cover with the other piece so all the Nutella is concealed. Roll into a ball and pop onto your prepared trays. Repeat until you've used all the cookie dough.
Place the cookies in the oven and bake for approximately 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Enjoy while still a little warm with a glass of milk.
Note: If the chocolate cookie dough is too wet to roll into balls using your hands, pop it into the fridge for 15 minutes or so.
