Nutella Stuffed Easy Nutella Cookies

Nutella Stuffed Easy Nutella Cookies | Butter Baking

Hey everyone! We’re starting a new year over here at Butter today!

As my first post for 2013, I wanted to share a really amazing recipe with you, to begin this year of blogging with a bang.

Nutella Stuffed Easy Nutella Cookies | Butter Baking

I’m hoping for great things this year, in my life and on my blog. I’m excited about it, and I want to start off on the right foot – with some ridiculously good cookies (I mean, what else could I possibly start with?!).

These easy Nutella cookies, with all of three (yes, THREE) ingredients, are one of the most popular recipes on the blog (they’re awesome, so no surprises there).

But today, I made them better. Yes, better.

Nutella Stuffed Easy Nutella Cookies | Butter Baking

How, you ask, could I possibly make ridiculously easy, chewy, delicious Nutella cookies that have only three ingredients any better?

By stuffing Nutella INSIDE THEM.

Oh yes I did.

Nutella Stuffed Easy Nutella Cookies | Butter Baking

And oh my gosh. I don’t even have words. My mouth is too full of gooey, chewy, chocolate cookies.

Bonus? The cookies still only have three (yes, THREE!!) ingredients.

Make these, okay? Good.

Here’s to 2013!

Nutella Stuffed Easy Nutella Cookies | Butter Baking

  • 1 cup Nutella (280g, 10 oz)
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 egg
  • Jar of Nutella, refrigerated, for stuffing
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C (350 F) and line 2 trays with baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the Nutella and the egg. Add the flour and stir until incorporated. The mixture will be quite thick.
  3. Roll a small teaspoon of dough into a ball and flatten in your palm. Place on the lined baking tray. Put a teaspoon of cold Nutella in the center of the cookie. Roll a second small teaspoon of dough into a ball and flatten in your palm. Place it over the Nutella and press the edges of the two cookies together, sealing them like ravioli.
  4. Repeat the process until all the cookie dough has been used.
  5. Bake for 6 – 8 minutes, I always err on the side of under baking for a chewier cookie. Makes about 18 cookies.

    Ha! You got me! I figured one of the ingredients would be “boxed brownie mix”. Nice!

  10. Yes please – the filling looks incredible!

  11. This looks amazing – I just got a jar of nutella for xmas (so many nutella cravings, prices for nutella are ridiculous in Japan). Gonna b sure to make these when I’m back in Aust 😀

    Hi there :) im so excited to try this :) question though, what’s the temp. Of your oven for baking the cookies? Tnx :)

  22. Add some grind hazelnuts in the nutella inside… maybe that makes it even nicer…

    Would this still have the same effect if baked the day before? I want to make them for my husbands bday but he will be home the day of…

  25. Hi Natasha! I have 3 huge tubs of Nutella sitting in the kitchen and your recipe looks absolutely easy to make and yumms! Definitely making a few batches for Chinese New Year for family and friends if it turns out well.


  26. Natasha, this is such an amazing recipe! quick and only 3 ingredients…I just made a huge batch for my friend’s birthday! i especially love the gooey nutella filling that just melts right in your mouth 😀

  27. I was almost disappointed when I realized I didn’t have parchment paper to make these, but then remembered that I have a silicone baking mat. I’ll be sure to make these at my upcoming bake sale at school. Thanks for the great recipe!

  28. So I made these, and as delicious as they turned out..the batter was very very dry :( and I followed the steps! So keeping the filling in was hard and some exploded x( but otherwise, very delicious! I will cut down a little on the flour next time

    • The dough is a little dry Maria! The more you work it the drier it gets and the more it cracks.
      So next time, mix till just combined, quickly roll a ball of dough and flatten, and work from there, try not to play with it too much :-)
      Glad you liked the flavours though! Better luck next time! 😀

  29. Can I use the spoon to mix the ingredients or I need the flour beater?

  41. Mahshid on April 13, 2013 at 11:40 pm said:

    I made these and they came out oily. What am I doing wrong? When you mix the ingredients do you use a wooden spoon? I used an electric mixer very briefly. Could this be the problem?

    Hi Natasha! I discovered your blog a few days ago and I’ve read the whole thing, I just wanted to tell you that you are amazing! I wish I had the courage you had, I’m in my last semester (I study engineering) but what I really love is baking and photography, so your story really inspires me! Congrats on doing what you love and having the guts to do it, it seems like you are very happy and it shows on your blog, the passion for what you do :)

    • Hi Fran! Oh wow you actually read the entire thing? It’s so long! You didn’t get crazy bored? Haha I really appreciate it, and all of your kind words. I hope that you get inspired and can be happy doing what you love :-) congrats on finishing your engineering degree though, that’s big!

  51. *faints* Too, too prefect.

  52. I really like the sound of these but do they spread rapidly? I have used Nutella before and in the oven it goes nuts and spreads everywhere, sometimes dripping over the sides! Will these do that? Should I add more flour?

    • Hi Ashlea! They turn out just like they are in the photos, so no they don’t spread rapidly. I’ve never had issues with Nutella in the oven? Are you using the actual Nutella brand? No don’t add anymore flour. If you’re worried, refrigeration before baking helps with spreading.

  53. Would you be able to tell me the English measurements (grams) and how long do you think these would take to bake in total? thanks x

  54. Oh man, I actually need these in my life! Like right now. :)

    Really good! When you give the second bite and you reach the melting core of the biscuit you can say you are in heaven… Thank you so much for all your fantastic recipes!

    I love simple recipes like this! It leaves room to experiment. I was thinking adding some crushed candy cane to the filling for the holiday season. Definitely going to make some tonight.

  57. Just started to make these to take for a wyldlife event!! I will also share them with my sunday school kids!! LOVE LOVE LOVE! Thanks!

  58. amazing.. will give it a go. i wonder if it will work with Speculoos/Biscoff….

    I just made these and my end product was awful. The batter was extremely crumbly with an unpleasant texture. I couldn’t stuff the cookies because the top cracked as soon as I tried to seal the ends. I tried adding more Nutella on the second batch but it didn’t help at all. The cookies fell apart as soon as you picked them up.

    • Hi Courney! Sorry to hear that. The mixture is quite thick/dry, I think I even state that in the recipe. Flattening the balls one at a time in your hands seemed to help it soften.
      If you look at the photos you will see that the tops of some of mine are cracked too – so that would be expected, no?
      I’m not sure why yours fell apart though – are you sure you used the right quantities? Egg is the binding ingredient here, so if there was too much of the other ingredients in proportion to the egg, that could have been why they didn’t hold.

  62. Hi.Happy New Year. I actually saw the pix of your cookies on I Funny. I got curious and tried it. We LOVE YOUR COOKIES!!!!!…Can’t wait to try the other recipes…my eleven year old daughter took over baking the cookies for the family..she loves baking them she said its so easy to make and very simple. She said ” mommy I think I found my calling”. She wanted to bake some for her cousins..but unfortunately one of them is allergic to eggs. What can she use to substitute for eggs?

    • Hi Joan! Good on your daughter :-)
      Honestly this is such a simple recipe with so few ingredients that I wouldn’t alter it.
      As for other cookie recipes, I have read of people using applesauce or a “flax egg” formula as a replacement :-)
      Good luck!

  63. These cookies looked amazing so I made them right away. They are in the oven as I am writing this so I don’t know how they will taste, but as far as making them…. the dough was a disaster! I was so crumbly I couldn’t roll them in to balls and made less then the recipe said because they just kept falling apart. I’ve NEVER encountered a cookie dough this crumbly. Did I do something wrong?

    • Hi! I found the dough quite thick/a little crumbly too, but found that rolling it into balls and flattening it between my palms made it soften due to the heat in my hands!
      I don’t think you did anything wrong, maybe you had a smaller-than-usual egg or didn’t measure out the Nutella quite right?

  64. Korina on February 6, 2014 at 8:18 pm said:

    My husband and son loved it. I’m going to try your Nutella Cheesecake next, among other things 😉

    Thank you for this recipe :)

  65. Omb! These look so tasty! I’m putting the link on Pinterest right now so all of my friends can see!

    I’m so grateful to have come across your blog. I just tried this today and my family really loves it. Not too sweet, it’s just right! I’m excited to try your other recipes. :)

  67. It sounds delicious! I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO EXITED! because i love to bake and i am only 11 but it seems easy enough for me to do! (except for the oven part). but i’m not the biggest chocolate person so i am probably not going to put in the nutella filling. i hope it will still taste great!

  70. Valerie on April 26, 2014 at 3:06 am said:

    Hey! Just to check, if I bake the cookies in advance & store it… Should I leave it out in an air tight container or do I refrigerate it? Not sure if the Nutella will harden? The eggs we have here are quite small, so what should I do to ensure it turns out well?


  71. Ziggie on May 7, 2014 at 8:41 pm said:

    Mmm needed a chocolate fix and found your recipe.. 15 minutes later I’m enjoying chocolate cookies! Yum

  72. Cookie Face on May 22, 2014 at 10:07 am said:

    Turned out really bad for me. 1 cup of nutella is not enough for 1 cup of flour. Dough was impossible to form together.

    • Hello! Seems like a few people have an issue with the dough. It could be your measurement of the flour (cups are rarely accurate as it comes down to how much you scoop and pack in) or the size of your egg that affected the outcome. Feel free to add more nutella/egg yolk to make these work for you, but keep in mind that the dough is crumbly and I had to mush and warm it in my hands to shape it as desired :-)

  73. Just made these with a different chocolate spread and they came out so well! Thanks for the recipe!

  74. Hing on June 5, 2014 at 7:59 am said:

    Hi! I was wondering on this recipe, could i substitute something else instead of nutella? I love the idea, but i’m not really a nutty fan. how could i make this so that it just has a chocolate-only flavour?

  75. Susan Melissa on June 12, 2014 at 11:41 am said:

    Hmm.. had a little problem with the dough but the hands do warm it up. I used a fork on the edges as the dough was a tad thick for pressing together and my Nutella warmed up while I was making the cookie part :) Mine look a bit more like a volcano than yours do but they’re definitely yummy :) Thanks! I’ll try again tomorrow. Yours look so much nicer! Practice, practice :)

  76. Susan Melissa on June 12, 2014 at 11:43 am said:

    Oh.. do you think I can freeze these? They’re for my daughter’s birthday next Thursday..

  77. Susan Melissa on June 13, 2014 at 6:06 am said:

    Using the fork on the edges made them a bit chewier than they should be, I think. My eggs are a bit small so today I used an extra yolk as well as measuring and rolling the Nutella into a ball for the filling first.. and putting it in the freezer and refrigerator to keep it cold but malleable. My cookies look *much* better today! Hope they’re a kind that can be frozen.. or kept in the fridge for a week! Looking forward to your response.. and thanks!

    • Hi Susan! Chilling the Nutella down is always great :-)
      I don’t freeze my cookies but you could always try! I’m sure they’ll keep fine otherwise (no refrigerated needed for a low protein food, room temp and airtight is fine).

    I made these last weekend for my band friends for our last competition. Im going to make them again today, per my moms request. They were amazing, except the refrigerated nutella was hard and really difficult to put inside the cookies once the dough was made. Do you have any suggestions?

    • Hi Danielle, that’s good to hear! Yes the point of refrigerating the Nutella is so that it goes hard, so that when you’re shaping the cookies around it it doesn’t melt and make a sloppy mess. If it’s too hard for you to scoop out of the jar, your could always put spoonfuls of soft Nutella on a lined tray and refrigerate that until hard :-)

  99. Yum these actually sound delicious. Thanks for sharing this recipe.


  100. I added some milk on the dough to make it less crumbly and smooth. Is that okay?

    • Not sure Laith, I haven’t tried that before. But in general, if a recipe needs adjusting, I would stick to changing the quantities of the ingredients already in it. For example, by adding more Nutella or more egg, rather than throwing in something new like milk. Good luck :-)

  111. I was just wondering how long these cookies last in the fridge?

    • Hi Kimberly! I don’t store my cookies in the fridge! I haven’t made these for a while but I think they would keep well for 2-3 days or so well wrapped on the bench. They will, of course, last longer, but will never taste as good as when freshly baked :-)

  112. just baked this and they taste good. who would think a 3 ingredient recipe can taste this good!
    thanks for the recipe!

  113. Natalie on March 6, 2016 at 8:51 am said:

    The recipe is very easy, but I would reduce the flour content to 3/4 c. because the dough was very crumbly and hard to work with. Especially since it ends up being so oily because of the Nutella. Otherwise, good recipe!

  114. My oh my! These look amazing! I can’t wait to try them, they look absolutely delicious
