Nutella Filled Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies. Basically the perfect cookie ever invented.
So I made some cookies.
They are totally worth every second it takes to makes them.
And also worth every calorie when you eat them.
Because it’s a cookie. Filled with Nutella.
Really, that is all.
Nutella Filled Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Let’s take a gander at the details.
First, we’ll need to talk about the cookies. They are chocolate chocolate chip.
AND I didn’t use cocoa powder.
I used melted chocolate.
So in total I used 4 CUPS OF CHOCOLATE CHIPS!
Sorry for yelling.
But really. 4 CUPS!
You’ll need the remaining 2 cups of chocolate chips to mix in at the end, you know, when you usually add chocolate chips.
It’s seriously delicious cookie dough.
Then let it chill for at least 2 hours. Sorry ’bout that.
While you’re waiting you should fill up a zip-top bag with Nutella and pipe little swirls about the size of Hershey’s Kisses onto a lined baking sheet or cutting board.
Pop that in the freezer and let them chill too…for at least an hour.
When everything’s good and cold, or you’ve just lost all your patience, go ahead and make your cookies.
Form about a tablespoon of dough around one of the frozen Nutella pieces.
Form them into balls and bake for 7-8 minutes. Oh yum.
Did I mention these are totally worth it?
Chilling your dough is super important in this recipe…make sure you don’t skip that step, or your cookies will be much flatter than mine!
