Perfect for Nutella lovers and cookie aficionados alike, this recipe combines the classic charm of chocolate chip cookies with the irresistible allure of Nutella.


  • 170 grams (approximately 1 and 1/3 cups) of all-purpose flour
  • 110 grams (about 1/2 cup) of unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 50 grams (1/4 cup) of granulated sugar
  • 50 grams (1/4 cup) of brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
  • 1 large egg
  • 100 grams (1/2 cup) of chocolate chips
  • A pinch of salt
  • 10 1/2 tablespoons of Nutella, chilled


  1. Preparation: Begin by placing dollops of Nutella (about 1/2 tablespoon each) on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Freeze these dollops for at least 2 hours or until solid. This step ensures the Nutella remains gooey and doesn’t completely melt during baking.
  2. Cookie Dough: In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened unsalted butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy. Incorporate the vanilla extract and egg, mixing until well combined.
  3. Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, cornstarch, and a pinch of salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Assemble the Cookies: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Take a portion of the cookie dough and flatten it in your hand. Place a frozen Nutella dollop in the center and wrap the dough around it, making sure the Nutella is completely enclosed. Repeat with the remaining dough and Nutella.
  5. Bake: Arrange the stuffed cookie dough balls on the prepared baking sheet, leaving ample space between each cookie. Bake in the preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies are golden around the edges but still soft in the center.
  6. Cool: Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. This resting period helps the Nutella center set slightly, creating the perfect gooey texture.
  7. Serve and Enjoy: Once cooled, serve these Nutella-stuffed chocolate chip cookies as a decadent treat that’s sure to impress. The combination of soft cookie, melty chocolate chips, and a warm Nutella center makes for an unforgettable dessert experience.
