Ingredients
  

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
 

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper set aside.
  • Melt chocolate in a saucepan over the lowest heat possible. Stir continuously until all chocolate is melted. Remove from heat and cool completely.
  • Sift together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • 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.
  • Slowly mix in dry ingredients. Batter will be thick.
  • Fold in chocolate chips. (Note: At this point, if dough seems too soft to work with, you can refrigerate for 30 minutes)
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Keep refrigerated until ready to use.
  • 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.
  • 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!
