Melt-in-your-mouth NUTELLA-filled Choco Chip Cookies

(*melt-in-your-mouth on the day of baking, after that, it's like a regular (albeit delicious) chocolate chip cookie with a hint of Nutella!)

Two of my favourite yummies coming together as one in this recipe - Nutella and chocolate chip cookies. There are a million recipes for this cookie out there so we thought it was time to give it a try.

This was an easy-to-make (yet delicious), chocolate chip cookie recipe with a dollop of Nutella inside... or all over as it was the case for me because it's one thing to put some Nutella on top but it's a whole other drama trying to contain that Nutella inside the cookie as you pinch it together and roll it. What a mess! But it was worth it.

No type of mixing tool (hand-held or otherwise), was needed for this recipe - I just used a spatula! It was really simple to make. 

So you're suppose to put a small dollop in the middle of the cookie dough then fold the dough over pinching the sides together before rolling it into a ball and placing it on the baking sheet but...

that was easier said than done. Maybe I added too much Nutella - or didn't make the cookie dough big enough to wrap around it but either way...

Nutella was oozing out from all sides of the cookie dough. I couldn't even capture it because my hands were full of Nutella and I didn't want to get my camera dirty. In the end I realize it really didn't matter as it gave the chocolate chip cookie a nice look:

Kind of look like cinnamon was added to it doesn't it.

So in a series of photos, I'll show you how easy the recipe was to make.

First you melt your butter in the microwave (just until almost liquidy but not boiling hot), then add brown sugar.

I always like to add more brown sugar than white when it comes to chocolate chip cookies because the molasses in the brown sugar is what makes it more chewy not to mention the appearance of the cookie looks better and the taste more chocolate chippy ;)

and then add some white sugar...

and mix together...

Then add your eggs...

and mix it all together well...

Then add your vanilla extract, salt and baking soda. Baking soda and not baking powder is important here if you want your cookie to spread. (If you want them more puffy or cake like, then you can add baking powder.)

and mix all together...

Next add your flour ...

and chocolate chips...

and mix it all till it looks something like this...

Then scoop out some cookie dough, roll into a ball and then flatten.

(Lol, you think I added enough chocolate chips? Hey!, 'a chocolate chip - or three in every bite, guaranteed', is my motto!)

Add a bit of Nutella in the center...

Enclose the cookie dough over the Nutella, roll it into a ball again and place on baking sheet (or flatten them a bit after rolling them like I did) ... 

Bake in oven for around 11 mins @ 350F and presto!...

Now if you find out they're all kissing each other after taking them out of the oven - that's ok. I make this mistake (if you want to call it a mistake) all the time...

Just let them cool for about 10 mins then gently break them away from each other when transferring them onto a cooling rack. See?...

Now let's open up one of these babies to see what they really look like inside...

Good Lord. If that wasn't enough, let's have a Melt-in-your-mouth NUTELLA-filled Choco Chip Cookies moment, and then call it a day shall we?

Now onto the original recipe. I basically doubled the ingredients of the original recipe (with the exception of the chocolate chips otherwise it would've been an overkill). This doubled-ingredient recipe is what I added below:

(My Secret Chocolate Chip Cookies with Nutella Filling Recipe)

(Yield: About 24 large-sized cookies)

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) melted unsalted BUTTER *
  • 1-1/2 cup brown SUGAR
  • 1/2 cup SUGAR
  • 2 EGGS
  • 1 tsp SEA SALT**
  • 1 tsp BAKING SODA
  • 3 cups all-purpose FLOUR
  • 3 cups (semi-sweet) CHOCOLATE CHIPS
  • chilled NUTELLA

* I used salted butter PLUS added the additional salt in the recipe and it still tasted fine for me.
** I used regular salt.


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ยบ F. 
  2. Melt butter in microwave for a few seconds then add the brown sugar and white sugar and mix all together in a large bowl by hand. (I mixed everything using a spatula.)
  3. Add the eggs and mix again until well combined.
  4. Add in the vanilla extract, salt, and baking soda and continue to mix until combined.
  5. Next, add in the all-purpose flour and chocolate chips. Mix everything until the dough comes together.
  6. Take a scoop of cookie dough and flatten it out like into a circle. Then take a bit of chilled Nutella and place it in the center. Envelope the Nuttella by folding over and pinching the cookie dough together like a dumpling. Roll into a ball and place on a baking sheet.*
  7. Bake 1 dozen at a time for 10 minutes until golden brown. Then let cool for 5 minutes before serving.

* I rolled them into a ball and then flattened them a bit!
