Peanut Butter and Nutella in one cookie? These Nutella Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies are the best of both worlds!! It's impossible not to love them!

Alright.  I know I’ve told you about my love for peanut butter in the past.  My mother gives Claire from the tv show Lost a run for her money!  (and she’s passed that love along to me too!) But I don’t think I’ve touched on the deliciousness of Nutella.  OBVIOUSLY I love it.  I mean, I have taste buds… That’s basically the only qualification to love Nutella – to be able to taste it.  I’m pretty sure I was hooked after one spoonful.  So when I found Handle the Heat’s recipe for cookies that have BOTH peanut butter and Nutella?  Well I just had to make them!

Behold!  The best ingredients in this recipe!  I was tempted to not make these cookies, and instead take a spoon to both jars…but I knew if I did that I’d do a disservice to the world by not sharing the ooey-gooey-goodness that is this recipe!

I was recently given some chalkboard label stickers for free to use from EAD Industries, and I put them on a few mason jars to label my go-to cookie ingredients.  I love these stickers because they’re washable, and if you make a mistake writing them (my spelling game isn’t always on point…) you can just wipe off the mistake and start fresh!  Plus, they look SO cute on these jars.  No more getting brown sugar all over my fingers (I swear, I’m a professional at that) – hooray!

Direction for how to make a pile of these delicious cookies:

  • Line a small dish (it has to fit in your freezer) with wax paper.  Put 24 teaspoon sized dollops of Nutella on the paper.  Put the dish in the freezer for about an hour (until solid).  HELPFUL TIP: if you put your nutella in a sandwich bag and cut the end off you can squeeeeeze out the nutella easily instead of fighting with a teaspoon – I definitely learned this from experience.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder in a bowl.
  • In a different bowl mix the brown sugar, granulated white sugar and butter (this is where having the butter at room temperature comes in handy).  Add in the peanut butter – mix it up.  Add in the vanilla extract and the egg – mix it up.  Slowly add the flour/salt/baking soda/baking powder mixture – mix it up.
  • Make 24 balls (about the size of two tablespoons) out of the mixture.  Divide each of these balls into two even pieces.  Each cookie will require two even pieces of this dough, and one (frozen) Nutella nugget.
  • Put a Nutella nugget between two of the even pieces of dough.  Form the cookie dough around each Nutella nugget so you don’t see any Nutella.  Do this until you have 24 enclosed Nutella cookies.
  • Place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes (until slightly golden).
  • Let them cool slightly and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Enjoy!

These cookies are SO delicious!  Having the Nutella nuggets frozen allows them to be gooey in the center of the cookies, and not mix in with the peanut butter dough.  I could eat all of 24 of these in one sitting…they are just that good!  The dough is so peanut butter-y and slightly crumbly, but still chewy.  The Nutella filling is the perfect consistency.  These are great for fulfilling your sweet and salty craving for the day!  And if you’re doing Weight Watchers these little beauties are only 5 points plus values (I couldn’t believe that’s all!).  Go ahead and make them for yourself!  I promise you won’t regret it!

      That’s a great way to use the Chalkboard Labels! And thinking outside the box too, everything I came up with was kitchen related, but using them for makeup is a great idea!

      Using them in the laundry room would be wonderful. It would turn a normally messy space into a clean, organized one! And you’re welcome! I’m happy to offer it, and I hope to do many more in the future. :)

    I’d use them for labeling my rice flours – the other day I got mixed up and couldn’t tell which jar had regular rice flour and which one had glutinous rice flour in it.
    I had to do a little water mixture to test to see which one was which.

    I’m still not sure if I got them right. 😀

    I can things from our garden like tomatoes, beans, cucumbers and other veggies. These would be perfect for labeling the jars.

    If I won, I think I would use them all in my son’s room. He has plastic drawers and I could label them, xbox, wii, lego’s, superballs lol. That would look great!
