1 cup of Nutella (280g or 10 oz)

1 cup of plain flour

1 egg

Extra Nutella for stuffing the cookies (approx 12 teaspoons is needed)


To start line a tray with grease proof paper (baking paper), and place onto the paper approx 12 teaspoons of nutella (ball shaped if possible), freeze for 1/2 hour or until firm. (This just makes the nuella easier to handle when stuffing the cookies).

In a large bowl mix 1 cup of Nutella and  1 egg. Then add 1 cup of flour, and mix to combine (it will be thick).

Roll out 1-2  teaspoons of cookie dough in the palm of your hand and then flatten. Place onto a lined baking tray. Place a frozen ball of nutella in the middle of this cookie dough. Take a second lot of cookie dough (1-2 teaspoons approx), roll in the palm of your hand and again flatten. Place it on top of the frozen nutella, and press the edges of the 2 cookies to seal them, as you would if making ravioli.

Repeat the process until all of the dough is used, i found it only made approx 10-12 cookies.

Bake for 6-8 minutes.

This was such an easy cookie to make, it only has 3 ingredients! The frozen nutella was a revelation, it was much easier to handle to stuff the cookies, and frozen nutella tastes great I’ve discovered! The cookies were a bit crumbly when first out of the oven, i found them easier to handle after i’d left them to cool, and came back to them a couple hours later. The molten lava centre is delicious, and even though i made them on Sunday there are no cookies left today for school lunches.

Cookie rating: 3 out of 5
