Nick’s favourite thing…

The stand-out feature of these nutella stuffed cookies? That oozing center. And it’s so easy to achieve! It’s all about prepping the ingredients to make sure things are put together well. Once the cookies are done, you just have to bake, wait ten minutes for them to cool, and then you’re ready to dig into chocolate cookie heaven!

What do nutella stuffed cookies taste like?

Chocolate overload! I really love Nutella, so I think Nutella adds kind of another note of chocolate to these cookies. But my favourite thing above everything? The sea salt flakes on top. Just like my Chocolate Chip Cookies, it elevates the chocolate flavours!

What are the ingredients I need for nutella stuffed cookies?

Cookies

Hazelnut spread – Let’s be honest. I used Nutella. Ok? It just tastes really good. But you can use whichever brand of hazelnut spread you like.

Unsalted butter – Make sure your butter is softened. If using salted butter, leave out the salt.

Brown sugar – You can use light or dark brown sugar. I used regular brown sugar.

Caster sugar – Also known as superfine sugar.

Eggs – I used large eggs at room temperature.

Vanilla extract – Make sure you use a really good quality vanilla extract. It makes all the difference!

Milk – I used whole milk for this recipe. You can use skim or even plant based milks.

All-purpose flour – also known as plain flour.

Cocoa powder – I used unsweetened cocoa powder.

Baking powder – This will help your cookies rise a little giving them an almost cake-like texture. It also makes them lighter.

Salt – I used fine salt.

Sea salt flakes – This is one of my favourite things about the recipe! The sea salt flakes on top. They add flavour, break through the sweetness f the cookie and filling, and help elevate the chocolate flavour too! Magic, right?

My Top Tips!

  • It’s important to chill the Nutella and the cookies, before putting the cookies together. The warmth of your hands as you wrap the cookie around the Nutella will melt and soften the cookie if you don’t chill them.
  • Sprinkling with some sea salt flakes elevates these cookies and intensifies the chocolate flavour. So you don’t want to skip it!
