Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Cookies

If you like chocolate cookies and especially Nutella these Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Cookies are the right treat for you. These decadent, rich, soft and chewy chocolaty cookies stuffed with melted Nutella are simply irresistible and a true delight for all chocolate and Nutella lovers.

I like to add salt and coffee almost every time I do chocolate recipes as both of them enhance the chocolate flavor, thus these cookies have a great balance between sweet, salty, chocolate and nutty flavor. These are by far one of the best cookies ever.

How to make Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Cookies

Start by lining a small baking sheet with parchment paper. Drop 12-13 teaspoons of Nutella onto the parchment paper, spacing them apart, and freeze for 30 minutes to 1 hour until they are firm.

Next, preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C) and line another baking sheet with parchment paper.

How to prepare the cookie dough

In a bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, instant coffee, salt, and baking soda. Set this dry mixture aside until you’re ready to use it.

In a separate bowl, mix together the butter, both sugars, egg, and vanilla until the mixture is creamy and well combined.

Gradually incorporate the flour mixture and chocolate chips into the wet ingredients, using a wooden spoon or spatula, until everything is evenly combined.

How to assemble stuffed cookies

Once the Nutella teaspoons are firm, remove them from the freezer. Dust your palm with cocoa powder to prevent sticking. Then take large spoonfuls of the cookie dough, flatten them on your palm, place a teaspoon of Nutella in the center, and wrap the dough around the Nutella, rolling it into balls. Place the dough balls onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them apart to allow for spreading during baking.

Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are set and the tops are slightly cracked. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for at least 5 minutes.

Once slightly cooled, transfer the cookies to a wire cooling rack to cool completely or serve them while still warm alongside a comforting cup of milk.

Hope you will try them out and enjoy these delicious Nutella-filled cookies as a delightful treat! If you do make sure to share the photos with me on Instagram. Would love to see how these turn out for you.

    Best Nutella stuffed cookies out there! My friend wrote down this recipe for me but I lost it. I’ve been looking through every recipe since until I found this one. The coffee really does make a difference. It doesn’t taste like coffee, rather it brings out that chocolate flavor like no other cookie I’ve had before! Love love LOVE this recipe!

    To anyone wondering how these turn out and whether they’re worth the try, a million times YES THEY DAMN RIGHT ARE. SO these cookies were literally my first try at baking cookies (I’ve baked other stuff, not cookies ‘cos I was always afraid they might not turn out good), but I took a leap of faith, made these, and was shocked at how awesome they turned out. Honestly everyone at home LOVED them, I divided them amongst us 5 at home, but everyone ended up eating my share too, and I;m making them again today ‘cos they keep on bugging me. HOME COOKING ADVENTURE IS THE QUEEN (sorry I don’t know your name 🙁 )

    Hi, how do I get the cookies to flatten out during baking? Mine seem to keep a fairly thick and rounded shape.

  7. Alexa Author says:

    If I were to make these and then give them as gifts, would it still be as enjoyable to warm them up a bit in the microwave as opposed to straight from the oven? Would it ruin the overall cookie or will it still be tasty? I love this recipe!!

  8. frances Author says:

    hi Ella, i wanted to ask: do you use regular cocoa powder or dutch proccess? please let me know. thank you 🙂

  9. Ruth Author says:

    Hi, can I freeze the cookie dough/batter?

  10. Laura Author says:

    Hi, I had to use much more flour than 125g. I used 200g to get it looking like yours. 125g was like a cake batter.
