Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Cookies

Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Cookies

Watch the video for this recipe:

If you like chocolate, cookies and especially Nutella this is the right recipe for you. Decadent, rich, soft and chewy chocolaty cookies stuffed with melted Nutella, makes them simply irresistible.

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

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp (5g) vanilla extract

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.

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!!

Hi, can I freeze the cookie dough/batter?

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.
