Nutella stuffed cookies

Posted by

Woohoo, first time I’ve ever made a stuffed cookie…now I’m thinking of all the other things I can stuff a cookie with…and I hope to post some of those recipes sometime as well, but for now, enjoy these cookies, and you won’t even need a mixer.

I’ve been searching for the perfect, flaky salt and I found this on Amazon and it is fairly inexpensive, so if you do end up buying this and using it, let me know what you think, click the image to go to Amazon!

Nutella Stuffed Cookies




  • 1 cup of unsalted butter
  • 1 cup of Nutella
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla paste (or extract)
  • 2 3/4 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 oz dark chocolate, finely chopped
  • Sea salt for sprinkling


  1. Brown the butter, this is super easy, cook the butter over medium heat until it starts to turn a golden brown. At this point, you are going to want to get this off the heat because it will keep cooking. Set this aside for 20-25 minutes until it cools (see images below)
  2. On wax paper dump out spoonfuls of the nutella, then place into freezer, I made about 25 little round nutella balls, leave it there while the butter is cooling (or swap steps 1 and 2)
  3. Mix the sugars with the butter until it is mixed, add the eggs and vanilla and mix
  4. In a separate bowl mix together all the dry ingredients (except for the flaky salt)
  5. Slowly add dry mixture into the butter mixture and mix it with a paddle spoon, it will come to cookie dough consistency
  6. Set the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
  7. Put parchment paper on a cooking sheet
  8. Now comes the fun part…take some cookie dough and flatten it, take one of the nutella balls and stick it on and over it with some more cookie dough and make a ball then place on the parchment paper
  9. The cookies will flatten so space it out by about 2 inches
  10. Bake for 12-13 minutes, then top it off with some of the flaky sea salt


  • No notes, except, I hope you love!
