This cookie recipe is the most popular one on my blog. And I can totally see why. This cookie is full of bits and pieces of chocolate- not to mention stuffed with Nutella! They can only be eaten with a glass of milk- makes ’em all the more deadly.

I took these so-dark-they’re-almost-black cookies to an school environmental club field trip. We went to collect trash by the Wisla river and afterwards rewarded ourselves with a campfire. We stuck Polish sausages on sticks and thrust them into the fire, then wrapped them up in some nice baguette. Afterwards, we roasted marshmallows- I brought out these cookies- to make them all the more decadent, we made S’morkies. Cookie-S’mores!

They were delicious- the marshmallows added a subtle touch to the deep, dark cookie. The angels were singing. I got the original  chocolate cookie recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction. She’s won awards with the recipe. Instead of using Rolos, I used Nutella- it’s a phenomenon! A baking revolution! I think next time, I may even sprinkle the tops with sea salt to get the whole bittersweet-salty thing going. You guys will love this dark chocolate, nutella-stuffed chocolate cookie.

Author: Hot Chocolate Hits
Serves: 16-18
Ingredients
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (I used a combination of chopped dark chocolate and chopped milk chocolate)
  • around 1/2 cup Nutella *
Instructions
  1. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt together, and set aside.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugars
  3. Add in the egg and vanilla, and continue to mix until light and fluffy.
  4. Gradually add in the flour mixture, switch to a metal spoon to make things easier, or use your hands.
  5. Then add in the milk and work to combine.
  6. Stir in the chocolate chips, then cover the bowl with cling-wrap and refrigerate for 1-2 hours minimum.
  7. Preheat the oven to 350 F, 180 C, and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  8. Flatten out 1 tbsp of dough, place a dollop of Nutella in the center, and then cover the dollop with another tbsp of flattened dough. Form into a ball, and continue with the rest of the dough.
  9. Bake for 12-13 minutes and let cool for a bit (I like to eat them still warm, with a glass of cool milk).

*NOTE- if you place dollops of Nutella on a piece of parchment, freeze them (around 15-30 min) and then wrap them in the cookie dough, the cookies will retain that gooey center- otherwise the Nutella dries out easily.
