My favorite cookie dough is stuffed with a scoop of Nutella and sprinkled with Sea Salt to make an extra large special cookie. Nutella Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies will be your new favorite.
One of my favorite cookies on the blog are these Cookie Butter Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies…I posted them a long time ago. Why on earth has it taken me this long to try a Nutella version? Sometimes I wonder what goes on in my head!!
I am happy to say stuffing my new favorite cookie recipe with Nutella and topping them with sea salt was a clear winner!
The richness of the Nutella oozing out of the middle is topped off with the sea salt. And sea salt on anything with chocolate is bomb diggity!
Have you ever put sea salt on your cookies? If you haven’t I suggest you try it, it adds that little something extra. Just like Elle Woods does in Legally Blonde when turning in her paper with a spritz of perfume. You just can’t stop eating a cookie when it has that little extra something.
One of my favorite things about this recipe is that in these cookies you can taste the butter. If you’re going to be starting something off with lots of butter I better damn well taste it!
Some recipes its like the taste of butter disappears, not in these cookies.
These are large cookies though, I take what I would normally serve as one cookie and make that the base, flatten it out to a disc and fill with Nutella. Then top with another cookie slightly flattened out, pinch the sides together and roll into a ball. This recipe makes about 14- 16 large cookies of course you could make them smaller but something about adding Nutella and sea salt to a cookie makes it extra special and let’s be honest extra special cookies are never small. Bigger is better, when it comes to cookies!
