Calling All Nutella Lovers: NUTELLA COOKIES INSIDE!

I am not a fan of Nutella personally, I know start yelling at me now, but I am just not that into chocolate products, and lets face it, this tastes like hazelnut chocolate! However, when incorporated into a cookie, I simply couldn't keep my little hands off of these things! Here is just another way to eat Nutella that will for sure leave others asking "how did you do this?!" :) It is SO simple too! Keep reading below for the recipe, and my next Nutella recipe is coming soon!


1 ½ cups flour
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup packed light brown sugar
½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
½ cup Nutella
1 egg
¼ tsp. salt
½ tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. baking soda
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Yields Approx: 25 cookies


  1. Mix together the  butter with an electric mixer or a whisk (my favorite) until everything is incorporated and a smooth consistency.
  2. Next put in your brown sugar and your white sugar and mix those very well until the consistency of the mixture is light and airy.
  3. Now you are going to add in that egg. If you are using an electric mixer be sure to have it on a low speed so you don't get splattered! Also add your vanilla at this time and then the Nutella!
  4. In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add  these ingredients to wet ingredients, and mix on low speed until incorporated. 
  5. Fold in the chocolate chips now, bringing up the mixer speed to medium at this point.
  6. Now it's time to make the cookie rounds! Take about teaspoon full and roll them into little balls.  I use a cookie scooper to do this with ease and to assure the same size cookies, after all presentation is key remember! :) ** A trick I read online somewhere was to put the dough in the freezer after rolled into the cookies for about 10 mins or so before baking to prevent them from becoming so spread out, I don't know how well this works per-say, because I haven't really ever tried these cookies without doing it lol BUT I say what the heck why not? :)
  7. I baked my cookies about 8 minutes (Remember I put them in the freezer before hand, if you didn't maybe drop the time by 2 mins).
  8.  Let your cookies cool and then serve them up with a big glass of milk! YUM!
Let me know if you guys try this out! They were gone in a day! :)

Nutella isn't just a spread after all,



  1. This looks awesome! I love nutella but not all that often so this is perfect :)

  2. These great! I made a flour-less version and they come out extra moist. You have a nice blog, I love reading your recipes, because I love food too. :)
