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.

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!

Melt 2 of those cups of chips over a double boiler or in the microwave…

Pour that into your batter.

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.

  1. I tried to make these – they were not quite as expected and I’m not sure why. I tried to follow the directions very faithfully. I did leave both the dough and the Nutella in fridge and freezer, respectively, overnight – maybe they got TOO chilled? The cookies were more cake-like than cookie-like, a bit dry, and remained tall instead of flattening out in the oven. Still good but not amazing like they should be! I also yielded 5 instead of 4 dozen (so the last dozen weren’t Nutella-stuffed, since I’m made the prescribed number, 48, of the frozen nutella “kisses”). Maybe I’ll try them again sometime… for now maybe it’s time to retreat into simpler stuff.

  2. Great cookies, however, I did realize that the longer the dough was left out of the refrigerator, the flatter the cookie. Question: Any idea as to how I could possibly adapt a pumpkin muffin batter with cream cheese middles into a cookie? I was thinking to freeze the cream cheese middle, just as the Nutella in your recipe, but not sure how to adapt my muffin receipt into cookie dough.

  3. This recipe is very messy, do not make with children. They may be good but gave up and made regular chocolate chip cookies w/ nutella. Good luck making these.

    1. up to 3 days in an airtight container for best results. You can keep them longer than that, definitely, but I think they are best up to 3 days.

  4. Frozen blobs of Nutella? you are a genius! i am a least 10 ponds more just thinking about baking these they look scrumptious 🙂
