You’ll love these thick and chewy Nutella Cookies. Soft chocolate chip cookies filled to the brim with chocolate chips and swirled with Nutella – they just might be my favourite cookie.
I seriously LOVE Nutella Cookies ❤️
Well, let’s be real. I just love Nutella. And cookies. So putting the two together just makes perfect sense. Big, buttery chocolate chip cookies swirled with Nutella and sprinkled with sea salt.
Thick and chewy Nutella Cookies For. The. Win.
It took me SO long to get these cookies just right. I first tried by making cookies with Nutella mixed right into the batter. But I was continually disappointed with the results, which lacked flavour and had a weird texture.
But finally, I tried only swirling Nutella into the batter, and I got everything I wanted. Crisp edges, a buttery soft centre, and plenty of gooey chocolate – and all the hazelnut goodness of Nutella.
It’s like a chocolate chip cookie met Nutella and made a sweet love child 💕
HOW TO MAKE NUTELLA COOKIES
These cookies are super easy to make. Once you make the basic chocolate chip cookie dough, you add 1/3 cup of Nutella and then beat or stir very briefly – just enough to swirl the batter.
They have a little less sugar in them (because of all the Nutella) and plenty of chocolate chips to boot. There’s NO need to chill the dough which means these cookies are quick and easy to make. Once baked, the Nutella helps give the cookies a little extra crispy crust, but the soft centre is still there.
Honestly, these cookies are the BEST.
HOW TO MAKE NUTELLA STUFFED COOKIES
The next best thing to these Nutella Cookies is Nutella Stuffed Cookies. I have a number of Nutella Stuffed recipes on my site worth trying, including these Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Cookies AND these Nutella Stuffed Cookie Cups.
The trick? Freezing teaspoons of Nutella and then stuffing them inside the cookie dough. Once baked, you’ll get a lava of Nutella at the first bite.
