Nutella Filled Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Nutella Filled Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies | Cookies and Cups

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.

Nutella Filled Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies | Cookies and Cups 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.

Because yes.


So in total I used 4 CUPS OF CHOCOLATE CHIPS!

Sorry for yelling.

But really.  4 CUPS!

 photo IMG_2479_zpsf56f754b.jpg 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.  photo IMG_2489_zps3a65ffd5.jpg Oh yum.

A 4 c of choc chip recipe is a recipe I love! Pinned!

Recently I made some PB/Nutella/Choc cookies. But I didn’t make the adorable stuffed Nutella drops like you did. I just put it into the batter.

I love Nutella. Today I made a martini with it :)

4 cups?? Oh heck yes!! The truth is I probably add close to four cups in our every day chocolate chip cookies. We have a lot of heavy on the chocolate, chocolate chip eaters around here. These look heavenly and when cookies look this good I never even think about calories. Who cares anyway? These are awesome!

July 25, 2013 9:44 am

These might just be the cookies of my dreams.

4 cups of chocolate chips is a lot, but LOOK AT THEM! They’re beautiful.

Oh nutella is awesome as it is but in cookies. the ultimate hazelnut lovers delight. I made a gaint oatmeal on with nutella a few post back; one that respectable enough to be pulled off as breakfast. calories? what calories? nothing matters with nutella

July 25, 2013 11:28 am

This is insane, I just gained 5 pounds looking at the pictures and licking the computer screen

July 25, 2013 12:43 pm

I always have such a hard time with chocolate cookies. When are they done?!?! These look amazing. I would eat the little dough balls just in case the batch got over baked.

I lived in Europe for a year. I love all things Nutella. I plan to use dark chocolate chips for a more intense flavor. Great recipe.

July 26, 2013 11:36 am

Killin’ it, once again.

July 26, 2013 8:16 pm

Oh yum! I could eat 10 of these.

As a fellow food blogger, I have to know: how do you get Nutella stains out of your fabrics that you use for photography?

July 27, 2013 2:44 am

I love chocolate and Nutella so this is more than pure perfection. I love to bake. I have this thing that when I look up recipes I never end up following them. I always make them more me. I add my own twist and that is not always a good idea. Ahaha.

July 27, 2013 1:13 pm

Oh my! I die.

July 28, 2013 2:57 pm

I’ve made Nutella filled cookies before, and LOVED them. These look amazing. Bookmarked

So much chocolate! So much nutella! So much YES.

July 28, 2013 10:42 pm

These cookies look absolutely gorgeous. I love that they are completely loaded with chocolate. Cocoa powder just isn’t the same. I can’t wait to try these.

July 29, 2013 1:54 am

You had me at Nutella! Need I say more?

July 29, 2013 2:43 pm

4 cups… amazing!!! I may not have 4 cups… do you think I could substitute 2 cups (13.3 oz) for 13.3 oz of Ghiradelli Semi Sweet Baking Chocolate?

July 29, 2013 3:27 pm

Hi! Wonderful cookies, but when I tried them out mine did NOT come out of the oven looking as gorgeous as yours, they looked more like melted out, flat, brown slabs with nutella popping out on top…. What did I do wrong?

August 3, 2013 11:57 am

Woah woah! I must make these soon!!! :-)

October 18, 2013 5:08 am
