I love cookies and everything else coming out of an American bakery! If you’re not afraid of calories, you’re ready for this ultimate chocolaty gooyness! I found this recipe, searching the net and the only thing I can say is that I’ve fallen in love with it, ever since I tried it.
Chocolate chip cookies are gorgeous and than I thought….what if I filled them with nutella? The result? A match made in heaven: the flavours of dark chocolate and nutella combine perfectly together!
Furthermore this is an easy peasy recipe that you can make just in half an hour! Let’s see how to make it!:)
For about 20 medium cookies:
- 250 g plain flour;
- 100 g soft unsalted butter;
- 100 g caster sugar ( or if you want 50 g caster sugar plus 50 g brown sugar);
- 2 medium eggs;
- 1 tbsp baking powder ( 5 g);
- 1/2 tsp baking soda;
- 1 tsp vanilla extract;
- 1 pinch of salt;
- 125 g dark chocolate chips;
- 50 g roughly chopped hazelnuts ( optional);
- nutella q.b.
Whisk together butter and sugar with an electric whisker until creamy ( you could do this with a free-stand mixer too!), then add the eggs, one at a time and continue stirring until well incorporated.
Aside, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Place all of your dry ingredients into the wet ones and add the vanilla extract. Stir with a wooden spoon until you get a soft dough.Last but not least add also the chocolate chips and your hazelnuts and blend the mixture evenly. Now cover your dough in cling film and let it chill in the fridge for about half an hour.
Once your dough has chilled, make 20 small balls and flatten each one with the palm of your hand, giving it a circular shape. Now place a large teaspoon of nutella (be generous with the filling) in the middle of the cookie dough and close the ends, forming a ball again. Arrange your cookies in a tray, lined with baking parchment, leaving some room between each other because they’ll spread.
Preheat your oven to 350°F/180°C. Just pop the tray inside and bake for about 15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
Let them cool down and serve them, still warm or store them in an airtight jar. These cookies are a real treat, they’re crisp on the outside and moist on the inside, just as American cookies should be!
