Chocolate Chocolate Chip and Nutella Cream Sandwich Cookies

Chocolate Chocolate Chip and Nutella Cream Sandwich Cookies

I realize that it is the middle of bikini season and many of us are trying to avoid temptations from evil sweets but I just could not resist sharing this recipe. To be nice, I won’t try to tempt you by going into detail about the semi-sweet chocolate chips and dark chocolate that I add to the cookies or the layer of fluffy Nutella cream sandwiched between two of said cookies.  I’ll just tell you that these are some of the richest, most scrumptious chocolate cookies ever.  I know what your thinking, but I’m not really evil, I promise.

There is no reason or story behind why I decided to make these cookies. I was simply craving chocolate (again) and Nutella and wanted to create a dessert that combined the two. It had been awhile since I made some cookies so those seemed like the best choice, and they were.

Print Recipe
Makes 18 - 20 Prep Time: Cook Time:

Ingredients:

  • 5 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter melted, cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Nutella Cream

  • 3/4 cup chilled heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup Nutella

Instructions

1

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper set aside.

2

Melt chocolate in a saucepan over the lowest heat possible. Stir continuously until all chocolate is melted. Remove from heat and cool completely.

3

Sift together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

4

In a large bowl beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until creamy. Beat in vanilla. Beat in eggs one at a time. Beat in melted chocolate.

5

Slowly mix in dry ingredients. Batter will be thick.

6

Fold in chocolate chips. (Note: At this point, if dough seems too soft to work with, you can refrigerate for 30 minutes)

7

Drop rounded tablespoonfuls of dough onto prepared cookie sheet, taking care to make sure they are all the same size. Press down to flatten slightly.

8

Cook 8-10 minutes or just until set. Remove from oven. Allow to cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes. Remove to cooling rack to cool completely.

9

To make the cream, whip cream, mascara and sugar in a bowl until peaks form. Gently fold in Nutella. Mixture will be light and fluffy.

10

Keep refrigerated until ready to use.

11

To assemble, with the bottom of a cookie facing up, spread a thin layer of Nutella cream on the flat side of one cookie. Place another cookie on top. Repeat with remaining cookies and cream.

12

Serve. Keep uneaten cookies refrigerated to keep cream from melting.

Notes

Note: Be sure to keep the Nutella cream cool. I have found that if this mixture gets too warm it loses its fluffiness. When that happens, I just pop it in the refrigerator for a little while, then whisk it and its ready to use.Enjoy!

  • Samantha

    Question: I might be dumb and overlooking it but where does the melted chocolate from the beginning of the recipe go?

  • Oh my gosh! Thank you Samantha for catching that. You should mix in the melted chocolate after you beat in the eggs.

  • Samantha

    No problem! That was my “guess” but I wasn’t sure. I’m doing desserts for a party of 50 tomorrow night and added these last minute after I saw them on foodgawker, and didn’t want to make a mistake as I won’t have spare time to “remake” anything!

  • I hope you and the party guests enjoy them! :)

  • These look INCREDIBLE! I just made cookie sandwiches too but I love this nutella filling!! YUM!

  • Okay, these rock my world! Nutella and chocolate chocolate chip cookies? Drool. Good idea!

  • Pickles

    *drool* I’ll leave it at that. Pure awesomeness.

  • I made these last night since a) the butter is melted and doesn’t need to come to room temp, and b) I like cookies like this with a small amount of melted chocolate blended in. I baked them until the outsides were set, then let cool a while. wow! there was a layer of fudgy innards, chewy, just slightly cakey. Most of the dough is in the fridge and I’m about to bake a few more!

    awesome cookies!

    So the melted chocolate is combined into the cookie mixture so that they are essentially chocolate cookies with chocolate chips? Do they keep their regular chocolate chip cookie taste? These look awesome though and I want to try!

    Hi! First of all, these are AMAZING! everyone loves them when I make them!! I do have a problem.. every time i make the Nutella cream, it is too runny.. or it is fluffy but because of the weight of the top cookie, the cookies side in al directions and it gets very messy!
    is there anyway to make the cream thicker, to become more like a ganache or even like a paste (like for oreos)? Thanks a lot!!

  • Hi Priya! I’m glad you like these! I have had problems from time to time too with the filling. What you could do is make a mascarpone/nutella filling by simply mixing the mascarpone and nutella together. It will be a bit creamier and should be less runny. Let me know if you try that! :)

    I’m thinking about making a version of these but instead of sandwiching, I wanted to put the frosting on top of one cookie and put the decorations on the frosting.
