Nutella Cookie Cups Recipe

Is it even possible for someone not to like Nutella? Write this date on your calendar, because that’s all about to change when you sink your teeth into a warm slightly underbaked cookie with a bit of melty Nutella nestled in its centre. These cookie cups are surprisingly easy to make. All you need is your favourite sugar cookie dough, a jar of Nutella, and a muffin pan. Also, they are cute, and bite-sized which is always fun for Holiday desserts. You know, portion control. Unless you have a huge bunch of these. Sort of defeats the purpose.

  • Preheat your oven to 190 degrees C.
  • Lightly spray muffin pans with baking spray or use a silicone muffin pan.
  • Cream butter in a mixing bowl, gradually add both sugars and continue creaming until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in eggs and vanilla and mix thoroughly.
  • In a separate bowl, sift the flour, salt, and baking soda with a wire whisk until combined.
  • Slowly add the wet ingredients until just combined.
  • Roll dough into balls 1.5 inches thick.
  • Place them in the muffin pan (do not squish down yet!) and bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden brown but not too dark around the edges.
  • Remove from the oven and use a shot glass or similar object to press your baked cookies down as soon as they come out of the oven.
  • It creates a perfect hole for your Nutella to melt in!
  • Add 1 tbsp Nutella to each cup it will start to melt quickly so you can swirl it around and make it nice and smooth.
  • Let cool for 15-20 minutes in the pan, and serve.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container for 3-4 days, or freeze for a convenient treat.
