I have been dreaming of nutella stuffed chocolate cookies for some time but I decided to make them red velvet so that they look even more attractive and passionate. Red is the color of love. Chocolate is the food of love. So let’s combine these two in one treat!
You can’t imagine how it is easy to make these. You don’t need to chill the cookie dough but you need to freeze the nutella inside beforehand. Just place teaspoon full of nutella onto a plate lined with parchment paper and wait it in the freezer at least for 30 minutes, until they get frozen.
Flatten the cookie dough and place a teaspoon of frozen nutella in the center and roll it up into a ball. Repeat this until you finish the dough. Nutella thaws out really fast, so it’s better if you keep the nutella bites in the freezer when you’re making the cookies. Remove it from freezer, stuff one or two cookies and put it back to the freezer so that the remaining nutella bites don’t melt or soften.
