Nutella Brownie Cookies are a chocolate twist on one of your favorite recipes. A fudgy, soft cookie with a smooth Nutella center, one of the chocolatiest cookies you’ve ever experienced!
Ok…I admit it.
I love these cookies way too much!!
You might remember similar versions of these Nutella Brownie Cookies. A peppermint patty flavor, a cookie dough flavor, and of course, our most popular recipe, a peanut butter flavor. I have an enormous sweet tooth for these things. So do many other people I know! The problem was, we had covered all our basic flavors for these cookies. Or so we thought!
An idea struck my mom and me as World Nutella Day crept closer. Uhhh…hello! Nutella inside a fudgy cookie?! That would be the PERFECT way to celebrate Nutella! My only thought was, ‘WOW’!
So we have a simple chocolate cookie. We have a Nutella and powdered sugar mixture formed and placed on the baked cookie. What next? Well, if you’re a chocolate lover like me, the obvious answer is: more chocolate!
We chocolate lovers know the necessity of TWO layers of chocolate on a very chocolaty cookie. It’s essential. I’ll take the most chocolate possible on my cookie please, then double it.
If these cookies didn’t already have a name, I’d call them “Little Bites of Heaven!”
Actually, my youth group leader made up a better name for these cookies. We’ve given him different versions of these cookies before, so when he saw these cookies come into our youth group Sunday morning, he got SO excited. He calls them “little balls of goodness” which made me laugh, because that sounds like something that my brother would say!
A dangerous factor of these cookies is that they’re incredibly easy to make. That’s for those of you with little patience.
You start with a brownie mix. If you’ve never tried brownie mix cookies, you are missing out. Add an egg, ½ stick of butter and ½ a block of cream cheese to the dry brownie mix. Mix it up, scoop out 24 mounds of dough, and bake them.
While they’re baking, you make the Nutella center which is 1 cup of Nutella, 1 cup of powdered sugar and 3-4 tablespoons of heavy cream. Mix that mixture well and roll it into 24 balls. Then as soon as they’re done (no waiting for them to cool!! Yay!) you stick those “balls of goodness” right in the middle of the cookies. Now if you really want to, you can eat them right then and there. But to make them extra delicious and good, we pour melted milk chocolate on top. We went an extra step and drizzled melted dark chocolate over the milk chocolate.
You can never go wrong with too much chocolate. Never ever!
So if you’re a chocolate lover like me, which I KNOW you are based on how much you loved the buckeye brownie cookies that we made (thanks, guys!!!), you’ll want to try these. In fact, you need to try these. Nutella is like glorified chocolate. So what does that make these cookies?
Little balls of goodness, I suppose!
All my favorite things in one cookie? Unbelievable! Love it.
Have a great Wednesday!
These cookies would not last a minute at my house! Haha! Definitely little balls of goodness in my book too!
Please tell me you are on your way to my house with a double batch of these?! Holy yum. Pinned!
These look so decadent and totally amazing in every single chocolate way, yum!
These nutella brownie cookies just look SO divine. I love their perfect appearance and all that delicious fudg-y center.
These look amazing! I must make them ASAP.
These look so ridiculously good…and then I scrolled down and saw all the others…please just pile my plate high with some of each!
I love Nutrella and these brownies look so decadent.
I have been staring at these all day. ALL.DAY! I think I’m in love. I’m a sucker for nutella and a sucker for a good brownie cookie. Seeing them together? I may just melt into a puddle.
These are amazing! Geez – I would not be able to stop at one… or two!
These look DANGEROUS!
I can’t get over that giant mound of nutella in the middle- looks so yummy! And the chocolate toppings are over the top good- that’s my kind of cookie 🙂
Oh I’ve got to make me some of these! So gorgeous!!
Wow! Those look amazing! I agree with the new name too. You can’t have too much chocolate.
OH MY GOSH! You are speaking my language. These look amazingly delicious!
