Equipment

  • Beaters, stand-mixer or Thermomix
  • Oven

Ingredients

  • 115 g (½ cup) unsalted butter
  • 150 g (¾ cup) brown sugar
  • 100 g (½ cup) caster sugar
  • 1 egg (plus 1 extra yolk)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 150 g (½ cup) Nutella
  • 295 g (2 and ⅓ cups) plain flour
  • 1 and ½ tsp bi-carb soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 170 g (1 cup) chocolate chips
  • sea salt to sprinkle

Instructions

Conventional Method

  • Preheat oven to 170 degrees celsius (fan-forced). Line 3 large flat baking trays with baking paper and set aside.
  • Cream the butter, brown sugar and caster sugar with hand-held beaters or a stand mixer on medium/high speed for 3-4 minutes or until pale and creamy.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla extract and beat again on medium speed until combined.
  • Add half of the Nutella (¼ cup) and beat through on medium heat (reserve the remaining ¼ cup for swirling through the mixture before baking).
  • Add the plain flour, bi-carb soda and salt and beat on low speed until combined.
  • Sprinkle over ¾ cup of chocolate chips (reserve the remaining ¼ cup) and stir through with a spoon or spatula.
  • Add the remaining Nutella and swirl through with a spoon to make streaks through the mixture.
  • Roll tablespoon-sized balls of the dough and place onto the prepared trays, leaving a 5cm gap between each dough ball to allow for spreading.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until just ever so slightly golden around the edges (don't overcook). Rotate the trays during cooking.
  • Remove from the oven and immediately gently press 2-3 chocolate chips onto the top of each cookie. Sprinkle with a little sea salt. The cookies will deflate as they cool.
  • Leave on the trays for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Insert the butterfly into the Thermomix bowl. Add the butter, brown sugar and caster sugar and mix for 3 minutes, Speed 3 (scraping down the sides occasionally).
  • Add the eggs and vanilla extract and mix for 1 minute, Speed 3.
  • Add half of the Nutella (¼ cup) and mix for 30 seconds, Speed 3 (reserve the remaining ¼ cup for swirling through the mixture before baking).
  • Remove the butterfly. Add the plain flour, bi-carb soda and salt and mix for 30 seconds, Speed 3. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix again for an extra 30 seconds.
  • Sprinkle over ¾ cup of chocolate chips (reserve the remaining ¼ cup) and stir through with the spatula.
  • Add the remaining Nutella and swirl through with a spoon to make streaks through the mixture.
  • Roll tablespoon-sized balls of the dough and place onto the prepared trays, leaving a 5cm gap between each dough ball to allow for spreading.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until just ever so slightly golden around the edges (don't overcook). Rotate the trays during cooking.
  • Remove from the oven and immediately gently press 2-3 chocolate chips onto the top of each cookie. Sprinkle with a little sea salt. The cookies will deflate as they cool.

Notes

RECIPE NOTES & TIPS
Storing - These cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
Freezing - The unbaked dough can be rolled into a ball and covered in plastic wrap. Freeze for up to 3 months. The baked cookies can be frozen in an airtight container (with layers of baking/parchment paper between each layer) for up to 1 month.
Stir the Nutella jar - Before adding the Nutella, give the jar a good stir to combine the oils that rise to the top.
Leave space for spreading - These cookies spread quite a lot so ensure you leave a large gap between the cookies on the baking tray.
