To make these Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies, we take chewy chocolate chip cookies and we stuff them full of melting Nutella!
You know I love Nutella. I have too many Nutella or chocolate hazelnut themed recipes on this blog to count!
Some of my all time favourites though are Nutella Brownies, Nutella Swirled Bakery Cookies, Nutella Chocolate Cake and my Nutella KitKat Cookie Pie. You know… If you need some more Nutella inspiration!
The recipe uses maple syrup which gives a delicate flavour to the cookie dough and paired with the rich chocolate and hazelnut filling is just moreish!
The cookie dough is a one bowl recipe and the key to really thick and chewy cookies is to let these chill for at LEAST 30 minutes. That way they don’t spread too much and become flat and hard.
The dough is also easier to work with when filling the cookies with the Nutella.
