These Nutella Lava Cookies are comprised of a soft and sweet cookie base that is stuffed with Nutella. Once baked up, the Nutella melts and oozes into each and every bite.
Cookie shops dot the map in Utah and one of the best happens to be a place called Crumbl. One of my favorite cookies on their menu is a Nutella stuffed cookie. I knew I wanted to make my own version and this Nutella Lava Cookie was inspired by their tasty treat.
This recipe begins with a basic, soft and sweet base. You then roll into 1-1/2 inch balls and flatten. On half of the flattened cookies place a dollop of Nutella.
After that, place a plain flattened cookie over the top.
Seal the cookie together and roll gently to form a ball. Place on cookie sheet.
Repeat for all the dough.
Once each cookie is baked, drizzle the top with melted Nutella.
These cookies are absolute DIVINE! If you love Nutella, then you absolutely have to make these cookies!
