Step 1: Freezing the Nutella

First you need to prepare the Nutella. Line a small baking sheet with baking paper and scoop 12 x heaped teaspoons of Nutella onto it. Flatten them a little so they are more disc shaped as opposed to ball.

Pop into the freezer to freeze completely for approx 30-40 minutes. (Overnight is fine if you prefer to plan ahead.)

Step 2: To Make the Cookie Dough

Preheat your oven to 180°C/Fan 170°C and line a large baking tray with a silicone baking liner or baking paper.

Next, cream together the butter and sugar in an electric stand mixer or a large bowl with an electric hand whisk until light and fluffy.

Step 3: Making the Cookie Dough

Then add in the vanilla & egg and beat again until smooth.

Step 4: Finishing the Cookie Dough

Next sift in the flour, baking soda, corn flour & cocoa powder. Mix just until it forms a dough and you can’t see any more dry ingredients.

Step 5: Assembling and Baking

This bit’s a little messy I’m not going to lie… definitely fun though!

Take a heaped tablespoon of cookie dough and flatten roughly into a disc in your hand. Then press a frozen Nutella disc into the cookie dough & fold the edges up and over the top to completely cover the Nutella. Give it a quick final roll in your hands to ensure the Nutella is sealed within the cookie dough then repeat for 5 more.

I recommend baking in 2 batches of 6 as they spread quite a lot during cooking. Put the frozen Nutella discs back in the freezer between each batch.

Place your prepared chocolate cookies spaced apart evenly on the lined baking tray. If you like, press a few chocolate chips into the top of each cookie for decoration, then bake in the preheated oven for approx 10 minutes.

Step 6: Baking and Cooling

(Please ignore the pegs, my baking mat wasn’t playing ball!)

Allow to cool on the tray for 5 minutes before carefully transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat for the 2nd batch of 6 cookies. When the Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Cookies are completely cooled, store in an airtight container and consume within 4-5 days.

Step 7: Tadah!

They say a picture paints a thousand words… well I’m glad because I’m really struggling to describe the sheer delicious beauty of these chocolate cookies! What’s not to love? The rich, soft & chewy chocolate cookie? The gorgeously melty gooey Nutella deliciousness?? I mean seriously, you have to try this recipe, it’s off the charts amazing!

Stuffed cookies are the best and these are even better than the best because they are Chocolate!

Nuts! --that is, one kid in the extended family is allergic to nuts, so I can't make these for Christmas dinner. There's no real substitute for Nutella, but I could stuff a marked batch with chocolate and -- what? Marshmallow? Caramel? Any suggestions welcome.

Aaaah yes, I'm not sure there's an easy answer to this sadly. I've tried stuffing cookies with many things and Nutella is the only one that's worked well. Marshmallow will likely go hard I think? Caramel is tricky and hasn't worked for me in the past. There are plenty of recipes out there for Nut Free Nutella - maybe you could try that and see if it works? I'm so sorry I can't be of much more help!
