Giant Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is the last cookie recipe we will be posting in 2012. I know that sounds sad, but don’t worry, there will be a lot more cookies coming your way in 2013. And we are going out with a big bang because these Giant Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies are out of this world!

It’s been a great year of cookies here at Two Peas and Their Pod. We’ve created lots of new cookie recipes and baked up old favorites. We came out with two cookie ebooks, Cookie Cravings and Holiday Cookie Cravings. We’ve gone through a lot of butter, sugar, Gold Medal Flour, eggs, and chocolate. And we used a lot of those ingredients to make these Giant Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies. These cookies are massive!

We shared Mini Hot Cocoa Cookies earlier this week, so we figured why not go big with these Giant Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies. We baked the cookies in a muffin top pan to create a thick, extra large cookie. The cookies may look like a regular chocolate chip cookie on the outside, but there is a special surprise inside. We stuffed the cookies with Nutella! Oh yeah!

When you reach the center of the cookie, you will find a big puddle of Nutella. I highly recommend eating these warm from the oven. You can’t beat a freshly baked cookie, especially when Nutella oozes out of the center. We sprinkled the cookies with sea salt before baking because you can never go wrong with a little sweet and salty.

If you are looking for one last cookie to make this holiday season, make Giant Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies. They are huge, decadent, and worth every bite. And if you’ve been naughty this year, leave these cookies for Santa. I am sure he will move you to the nice list after one bite.

Giant Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: 12 Giant Cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 14 minutes

Giant chocolate chip cookies with a Nutella surprise!


1 1/2 cups all purpose Gold Medal flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
12 tablespoons Nutella (1 tablespoon per cookie)
Sea salt, for sprinkling on top of cookies


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray two 6 count muffin top pans with non stick cooking spray. Set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter and sugars until creamy and smooth, about 3 minutes. Add egg and vanilla extract, beating until combined.

3. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

4. Press a thin layer of cookie dough in the bottom of each muffin top cup. Add a tablespoon of Nutella into the center of each cookie. Cover each cookie with remaining cookie dough by carefully pressing the cookie dough over the Nutella. Make sure the Nutella is covered. Sprinkle cookies with sea salt.

5. Bake cookies for about 14 minutes or until browned around the edges, but still soft in the center. Let cookies cool for 10 minutes in the pan before transferring to cooling rack.

Note-if you don't have a muffin top pan, just make extra large cookies. Take a scoop of dough and flatten in the palm of your hand. Add a spoonful of Nutella into the center. Top with more dough and carefully roll into a large cookie dough ball. Place on a large baking sheet lined with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper. Sprinkle with sea salt and bake.

    These look absolutely amazing! I usually don’t bake with nutella because I feel like the flavor doesn’t stay as prominent once you put it in a cookie dough, but stuffing it inside the cookies is the perfect solution!

  16. Ashley — December 19, 2012 @ 11:00 am

    These look mouthwatering.Could I bake these cookies in a regular lined muffin cups pan or in paper baking cups instead of the muffin top pan?

    Oh yes, I am always a big fan of Nutella with anything, but especially tucked inside of cookies. These look wonderful, Maria!
