Nutella Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies


Another Hazelnut-y recipe! I guess hazelnuts are always on my mind nowadays, wonder why.
But, I figured you guys would not mind and we could bond over our love for hazelnut and chocolate while eating these cookies! Yes, you read correctly. A stuffed cookie, what could be better than this? Hardly anything, I can assure you. This recipe is adapted from Bake to the Roots.

Nutella Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 1/2 cups                a.p flour
1/2 tsp                     baking soda
1/4 tsp                     salt
1/2 cup                    butter
1/2 cup                    sugar
1/2 cup                    brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp                        vanilla
6 oz.                        bittersweet chocolate
1/2 cup                    Nutella

To make the Nutella filling, fit a piping bag with a round tip and fill with the Nutella. Place a sheet of parchment paper onto a baking sheet. Pipe 1" blobs of Nutella onto the parchment paper, about 20. Place tray in the freezer and let it chill for about an hour.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Chop the chocolate and set aside. In a medium bowl mix the flour, baking soda and salt, and set aside. In a large bowl add the butter and sugars. Beat until pale and fluffy. Next, add the egg and vanilla, beat again until well incorporated. Add the flour mixture and mix until well combined. Lastly, stir in the chopped chocolate.
Take the chilled Nutella out of the freezer. Take a bit of dough and press it out slightly flat. Place one round of Nutella in the middle and fold the dough around it. Place more dough on top, once the Nutella is fully covered, roll it into a ball and place on your baking sheet, flattening it out slightly. Repeat with the rest of the dough. If your Nutella gets too soft , just place it back in the freezer for 5 minutes to set it up again. Bake the cookies for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown. Let them cool. Enjoy!


Sadly, I will be headed back to school fairly soon to begin grade eleven. So I won't be able to update as often. Although, I have a special recipe prepared for you guys. I should get around to posting it in the upcoming week, so you can look forward to that.
I sincerely hope that anyone going back to school this fall has lots of fun and works super hard at their school work!
