Maybe chocolate chips just aren't enough in your cookies. Maybe you just need that extra umph. Well, I've got it! With this specially made recipe, adjusted to give you a melt in the middle nutella centre and a chewy and crispy cookie, one just isn't enough. Here is how to make Nutella Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies.
200g chocolate chips
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
480g self rasiing flour
1/4tsp baking powder
1/4tsp baking soda
180g packed brown sugar
60g granulated sugar
Step 1: The Butter Mixture
In a large mixing bowl, add in your cubed butter. It must be softened, at room temperature. Using a wooden spoon, stir the vigorously until light and fluffy.
Step 2: Add in the Sugars
Next, add in both kinds of sugar. They will give your cookie a soft and chewy texture, as well as adding sweetness and more flavour. Mix them in to combine, then add in your vanilla extract.
Bakers Note: The brown sugar should be packed.
Step 3: Creating the Dough
Once you have a nice light, golden brown mixture like this, add in your two eggs one at a time, stirring between each addition.
Now mix together your baking powder and baking soda into your flour.
Add your flour mixture into the butter mixture and stir until you get a sticky cookie dough.
Fold in your chocolate chips, and this is optional but I used half chocolate chips and half chocolate chunks.
Step 4: Creating the Cookie Balls!
I feel like, for even dough balls you should use a cookie scoop (icecream scoop) but if you don't have one use a heaping table spoon.
Scoop your dough onto a cookie tray, space them about 1 1/2 inch apart because they will spread. In the centre of each cookie dough ball, make a well. Into that well add in about a teaspoon of nutella. Grab some more cookie dough and cover the nutella so none can be seen.
Bake in an oven at 180 degrees Celsius.
Bakers Note: It is best to work one cookie at a time, just to ensure you have enough dough to cover each of them.
Step 5: You're Done!
Leave to cool or eat warm and serve with a glass of milk! YUM. They are so delicious and tasty! Not to mention easy. That melt in the middle centre is just glorious... so why not give it a try?
