- 1½ cup of Nutella
- 1 cup of softened Butter
- 1 cup of Raw Sugar
- 2 Eggs
- ¼ cup of Condensed Milk
- 2 teaspoons of Vanilla
- 1 cup of Cocoa Powder
- 3 cups of Flour
- 1 teaspoon of Baking Soda
- 1 teaspoon of Table Salt
- Himalayan Crystal Salt
Instructions to make the Soft Nutella Center Cookies
Step 1: Line a tray with a cookie sheet and place 10-20 small Nutella balls (about 1 tablespoon Nutella each) 2 inches apart. Transfer the tray to the freezer for 1-2 hours.
Step 2: Take a large-sized bowl. Add the butter and raw sugar. Mix both the ingredients with a hand mixer to achieve a light and airy texture.
Step 3: Now, add the eggs, condensed milk, & vanilla into the butter mixture and beat till nicely mixed.
Step 4: Next, add the cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, and table salt. Mix again to achieve the raw cookie dough. Put the dough in the fridge for an hour or until the Nutella balls have finished the freezing time.
Step 5: Meanwhile, set the oven at 350°F for preheating.
Step 6: Take out the Nutella balls and raw cookie dough. Also, line up another baking tray with a parchment sheet.
Step 7: Scoop out 1½ tablespoons of the raw cookie dough mixture. Make 2 tiny balls with the cookie dough in your palms. Roll out the balls separately into two thick flat circles (about 2-2½ inches diameter). Now, make a sandwich by placing a Nutella ball in the middle and the 2 cookie dough circles on top & bottom. Join and seal the edges of the cookie dough circles so that the Nutella ball is no longer visible. Place it in the lined baking tray.
Step 8: Repeat Step 7 with the remaining cookie dough. Place each raw cookie about 2-inches apart in the tray.
Step 9: Shower a pinch of the crystal salt on top of each raw cookie.
Step 10: Put the baking tray in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Your soft Nutella center cookies are ready! Let them cool for 5-10 minutes at room temperature before serving.
