Happy Monday! To make your Monday just a little bit sweeter, here are some Nutella cookies that are stuffed with MORE Nutella and sprinkled with chopped hazelnuts.
These cookies are every Nutella lovers dream!
I’m a big fan of Nutella! I sometimes even eat it with a spoon – no bread, just a spoon. Sooo good! Perfect when you forgot to buy chocolate and are craving something sweet. One spoon of this gooey hazelnut spread and your chocolate cravings are satisfied.
I love combining Nutella with other flavors. Believe it or not but cherries and Nutella are soooo good together. But today Nutella is the STAR of this recipe!
Since it’s almost December and the holiday season has started, I thought it was about time for a yummy cookie recipe!
Oh, holy yumminess! These Nutella stuffed cookies will literally blow your mind. This recipe is for you if you like:
A) DOUBLE Nutella in your cookies: The main ingredient of the batter is Nutella & they’re filled with Nutella <– YES, please!
B) Easy recipes that only need a single-digit amount of ingredients!
C) Utterly addictive soft, chocolatey cookies <– Very true!
Soft and chewy Nutella cookies stuffed with MORE Nutella and topped with chopped hazelnuts and a cold glass of milk?
Seriously what is not to love about a Nutella x2 cookie?
And I should mention that they’re super easy to make as well and you really just need four ingredients to whip them up!
We start with whipping the Nutella and the egg together. Then we add the only dry ingredient we need: flour! Mix until everything is combined and the dough is DONE. That was easy, wasn’t it?!
The Nutella dough needs to rest for 10 minutes in the fridge which is exactly the time I need to clean up and preheat my oven. OK let’s be real I probably won’t clean up but rather flip through Instagram. Really bad habit!
When the time is up, take the dough out of the fridge and using a tablespoon, scoop out dough and form about 20 cookie balls. Make a well in the center of each cookie and fill it with Nutella.
Top with chopped hazelnuts for more depth of flavor! YUM! Bake them until they’re done, and you’ve just made yourself the BEST and EASIEST Nutella Cookies. They taste best right out of the oven but keep also fresh for a few days in an airtight container.
These cookies are soft, gooey, full of Nutella, and get a little crunch from the hazelnuts.
Nutella x2 cookies are heaven!
Nutella Cookies Recipe
- 1 large egg
- 3/4 cup Nutella room temperature, 180g
- 1 cup all-purpose-flour 120g
For the filling:
- 1/2 cup Nutella room temperature, 120g
- 1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts
Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment whisk together the egg and 3/4 cup Nutella for about 2 minutes until the mixture is glossy.
Add flour and beat until combined.
Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rest in the fridge for 10-15 minutes. Don't leave the dough longer in the fridge or the dough will get cracked when forming the balls.
Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C).
Using a tablespoon, scoop out dough and form 20-25 cookie balls. Place cookie balls on the baking sheet.
Use your finger or the end of a wooden cooking spoon to make a well in the center of each cookie.
Fill the hole with Nutella. The easiest way is to use a pastry bag or a Zip Lock bag for this.
Sprinkle chopped hazelnuts on top of the Nutella.
Bake for about 10 minutes. Take the cookies out of the oven and let them cool down a bit to firm up.
These taste great warm but also keep fresh in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
Recipe updated 12/21 because some readers had problems with the dough being too dry. I reduced the amount of flour from 1 1/4 cups to 1 cup.
