There’s no denying my love of a classic chocolate chip cookie… but these Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies are next level!

All the goodness of a classic chocolate chip cookie, but with the added deliciousness of sweet, creamy hazelnut Nutella.

Why You’re Going To Love These Cookies

Once you’ve tried these soft and chewy cookies… there’ll be no going back!

  • No need to chill the dough – unlike most cookie recipes this recipe requires absolutely NO chilling!
  • One bowl recipe – forget about doing lots of dishes… all you need is one bowl and hand-held beaters (or a stand mixer or Thermomix)
  • Mix, roll and bake – this recipe is perfect for beginning bakers to experienced cooks! Simply mix the dough, roll into balls and bake.
  • Soft & Gooey – these Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies are soooo oozy and gooey in the centre
  • Chewy on the outside – the edges of the cookies turn deliciously chewy and crunchy
  • Stays soft – unlike some other cookies that dry out quickly, the Nutella in these cookies ensures they stay soft for days
  • Sweet and salty – the sprinkle of sea salt over the top of the cookies perfectly balances the sweetness

What You Need

These Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies are made from pantry staples (you wont even need to make a trip to the supermarket!)

Note: please scroll to the recipe card at the bottom of the post for the ingredient quantities and full detailed method.

  • butter – I recommend using unsalted butter as I like to add a pinch of salt to the cookies. If you use salted butter, simply omit the pinch of salt (but still sprinkle the tops with a little sea salt)
  • brown sugar – this gives the cookies their soft chewiness
  • caster sugar – also known as superfine sugar. This gives the cookies a lovely crunch
  • egg – I recommend using a large egg plus an extra egg yolk. The extra egg yolk gives the cookies the most amazing chewiness
  • vanilla extract – also known as vanilla essence
  • Nutella
  • plain flour – also known as all-purpose flour
  • bicarbonate soda – also known as baking soda
  • sea salt – I add a small pinch of salt to the dough and then sprinkle a little extra over the top of the cookies
  • chocolate chips – use milk or dark chocolate chips. I like to add a few extras to the top of the cookies immediately after they’ve been removed from the oven (totally optional… but it looks pretty!)

Recipe Notes & Tips

Stir the Nutella jar

Before adding the Nutella, give the jar a good stir to combine the oils that rise to the top.

Leave enough space for spreading

These cookies spread quite a lot so ensure you leave a large gap between the cookies on the baking tray.

What equipment do I need?

Hand-held beaters, a stand mixer or a Thermomix. And of course, an oven!

Do I need to sprinkle the cookies with sea salt?

You don’t ‘need’ to add sea salt on top but doing so gives the cookies the perfect balance of sweet and salt. I highly recommend adding a sprinkle of salt – it’s a game changer!
