Nutella Filling:

  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons Nutella

For the Dough:


Nutella Filling:

  • Scoop into 2 teaspoon size balls (I use a small trigger scoop) onto a wax paper lined baking sheet and place in the freezer. (If making these a day ahead, place them in the fridge.)

For the Cookie Dough:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Place ¼ cup granulated sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter with the remaining ½ cup granulated sugar and the brown sugar for 3 minutes.
  • Mix in the Nutella and vanilla until smooth and creamy. Add the egg and yolk, mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt and mix on low until combined. Scrape sides as needed.
  • Use a 1½ Tablespoon trigger cookie scoop to portion dough into 28 balls on a baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Remove the dough and flatten the balls between your hands. Place a ball of Nutella in the center and fold up the sides around it and then roll smooth.
  • Roll the ball of dough in the ¼ cup sugar and place on a baking sheet 3 inches apart. (About 8 per baking sheet.) Using a spatula, lightly press each cookie down. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.
