  • 1 1/4 cups Nutella divided use
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips or candy melts
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips or candy melts


  • Use 1 cup of the Nutella to make 2 teaspon sized dollops on a parchment lined sheet pan. 
  • Freeze the Nutella dollops until firm.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 sheet pans with parchment or a nonstick silicon baking mat.
  • Place the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in the bowl of a mixer. Beat until fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the remaining 1/4 cup of Nutella and vanilla extract to the bowl. Beat until combined. 
  • Add the egg and egg yolk to the bowl and mix until combined.
  • Add the flour, cocoa powder and baking soda to the bowl. Mix on low speed until just combined.
  • Scoop out 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough and form into a ball. Place on prepared baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Cover the pan with plastic wrap and freeze for 10-15 minutes or until balls of dough are firm.
  • Flatten each ball of dough with your hands and place a dollop of frozen Nutella on top. 
  • Fold the dough around the Nutella and roll until smooth. Flatten each ball into a disc shape.
  • Place each cookie 2 inches apart on the baking sheets.
  • Freeze the cookies for 10-15 minutes or until firm.
  • Bake each sheet pan or cookies for 10 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.
  • Place the dark and white chocolate into two bowls. Microwave each bowl in 30 second increments until chocolate is melted. Stir until smooth.
  • Use a spoon, piping bag or plastic resealable bag with the tip snipped off to drizzle both chocolates over the cookies.
  • Let cool until chocolate is hardened, then serve. Cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
