Adding an extra layer of sweetness to baking are these Nutella stuffed sugar cookies created by Homemade Hooplah that cleverly conceal a pocket of gooey melted chocolate inside a sugar cookie crust.

These cookies are delicious to eat fresh from the oven since the Nutella hidden in the centre will be warm, melted and super gooey. These cookies are made from a traditional sugar cookie dough that is then left to chill for several hours. To create the pockets of Nutella chocolate spread for the cookies, scoop teaspoons of the spread onto a sheet covered in parchment and freeze the dollops. The frozen chocolate chunks are then placed inside the centre of each sugar cookie dough. When the cookies bake the frozen chocolate melts creating a sweet and gooey pocket.
