Can you make these cookies without Nutella?

This is a very solid chocolate chip cookie recipe, so you can make them without the Nutella if you want to. Where’s the fun in that though?!

Why do you have to freeze the Nutella?

The Nutella needs to be solid when you wrap it in the cookie dough. It’s easier to handle this way, but it also means that it won’t melt to quickly when the cookies are baked.

Can you make cookies ahead of time?

These Nutella stuffed cookies, once fully cooled, store them in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge. They will keep well for 4 to 5 days. They can be enjoyed at room temperature or you can heat them in the oven to make the centers extra gooey.

Can you freeze Nutella cookies?

Yes, these will keep well frozen for up to 3 months. Freeze them solid on a baking sheet before transferring to a bag or container. Thaw them at room temperature before enjoying.

  • Don’t over mix the cookie dough when you add in the flour. This can overdevelop the gluten leading to heavy cookies.
  • These cookies only take about 10 minutes to bake, so keep your eye on them. They are done when they tops are solid and the edges are golden brown.
  • Cool the cookies on a wire rack. This allows the air to circulate around them so that they don’t get soggy.

These Nutella stuffed cookies are sure to disappear quickly! My family couldn’t get enough of them!
