Nutella Stuffed Choc Chip Cookies with Sea Salt

Is there any thing better in life than a freshly baked choc chip cookie adorned with a sprinkle of sea salt? How about stuffing it with Nutella? This just may be my new favourite cookie.


I’ve played around with my basic chocolate chip cookie for a few years now, each time trying to outdo the last recipe. My original recipe started out as a classic Choc Chip Cookie with a high ratio of brown sugar to ensure the cookies are chewy in the middle and crunchy on the outside. It then evolved into a Salted Caramel Chip Cookie before being dressed up as a Brown Butter Choc Chip Cookie with Sea Salt. But let’s be honest, if you have the option to fill something with Nutella, then you always should.


The good news is these cookies are incredibly easy to make. The only dexterity required is filling the cookies with the Nutella, but even if you do a messy job it’s still going to taste just as delicious!

  • 140 g butter room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 egg room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • cups plain flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • Generous pinch of sea salt
  • 250 g chocolate chips
  • 200 g Nutella


  • Preheat oven to 170°C. Cream the butter and sugars for at least 5 minutes until the mixture becomes light and fluffy.
  • Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat well.
  • Add choc chips, flour, baking soda and baking powder. Beat on low speed until just combined (don't overwork the mixture or it can become tough).
  • Scoop a tablespoon of dough and flatten it into the palm of your hand. Add a dollop (1-2 tsp) of Nutella into the middle, then fold the cookie dough back up so that it seals and covers the Nutella completely.
  • Place the cookies on baking trays and sprinkle each one with sea salt.
  • Bake until cookies are golden around the edges, around 12-14 minutes.

There’s nothing more satisfying than slowly breaking one of these freshly baked cookies apart. The Nutella is still hot and gooey, the outside of the cookie is crisp and almost caramelised and the subtle hint from the sea salt balances it all out.


So I think this is officially my new favourite choc chip cookie! It may have taken 4 different recipes and many batches of cookies baked and tested, but I’m a selfless woman so I was happy to put myself through all that just for you ;)


Oh and don’t forget there are more cookies recipes here and more Nutella recipes here. Happy Baking!

    Oh my! Nutella INSIDE the cookie. This has blown my mind! I can’t believe it stays there neatly. Alchemy :)

      It’s definitely some kind of magic. I must admit I didn’t fill the cookies particularly neatly but they managed to stay in tact!

    Can’t wait to try these…. I saw a recipe for nutella pancakes online which recommends making round discs of nutella on baking paper then freezing for an hour and a half and taking out to use when you need it for an easier less messier way of adding the nutella in the middle…… might work with these cookies.

    • Reply Swah July 7, 2015 at 2:20 pm

      What a brilliant idea Marsha! It does get a bit messy working with softened Nutella, I will have to try the freezer way – thank you :)

    Just thought I’d let you know that there isn’t a week that goes by where I don’t make these cookies! They are the perfect cookie and nutella combo, and rock my world! They also work easy and taste great with gluten-free flour in case anyone is wondering! So give them a go for sure. Thank you for this recipe!! :)
