Nutella stuffed Chocolate Chunk Cookies


Pardon me for posting such bad quality photos but I don't have the camera with me :( But since I happened to make the BEST cookies ever, I just couldn't let it go by and not post it on my blog. I mean, seriously. If you make cookies that absolutely have the best consistency ever, are stuffed with chocolate and nutella... It's just not an option to not share it with the world! If people didn't think I am completely nuts, then I would definitely shout it out that YAAAY I finally found the best of the best recipe!! 


Just look at it. Nutella is oozing out of a perfectly chewy cookie. It is something you must make for yourself to know what I'm talking about. I sprinkled some salt on top so the sweet and salty combination sends your taste buds to heaven. And I'm not even exaggerating! I made a half batch of NYT cookies. They were fine. But they don't even compare to these lovelies! So now you have it. Run to your kitchen, or the closest grocery store to get a jar of nutella and dive yourself into making cookies! I found the recipe on Pinterest. I made some alterations to it. Like I immediately halved the recipe since 8 giant cookies are already too much for 2 :D And I noticed that if I make too many cookies then I'm more likely to eat 3 or even 4 in a day! That makes my ideal calorie intake for a day and I haven't eaten anything else yet! So I make less and I eat only 1 max 2 cookies which are a lot better. The original recipe also uses browned butter but all I had was some margarine and it doesn't brown so I just melted it and let it become solid again. I've noticed a huge difference in cookies when I used this method! I'm not sure why but I do get rid of the excess water that comes out of the already solid margarine after it was melted. Maybe that's the key? I don't know but it really makes the cookies chewy and gooey! Okay, I don't keep you on your toes anymore and here's the recipe.


Nutella stuffed Chocolate Chunk Cookies
recipe adapted from Ambitious Kitchen

1 + 1/8 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 stick or 113 grams margarine or butter
1/2 + 1/8 cup brown sugar
1/8 cup granulated sugar
1 egg yolk and 1/2 egg white
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 Tbsp plain greek yogurt
50 grams chocolate chunks 
8-9 tsp Nutella
salt for sprinkling

Melt the margarine or butter in a saucepan over medium heat. If using butter, it will take longer since you want it to brown. First, it will foam then keep stirring it until you get a nice brown color. Then put it in the fridge or outside (it's freezing here) and let it become solid again.
While you're waiting for the butter to cool, incorporate the flour, baking soda and salt together. 

When the butter/margarine is solid, add the sugars in it and blend it together with an electric mixer. Add in egg yolk and half the white. Mix. Add in the vanilla and then the yogurt. 

Mix the dry and wet ingredients together. Fold in the chocolate chunks. You can refrigerate the dough for a few hours. I didn't.

Preheat oven to 350F or 175C.

Measure a scoop of dough, flatten it with your hands and spread 1 teaspoon of nutella in the middle. Carefully fold the dough around it so you'll get a small ball. Repeat with the remaining dough. Sprinkle salt on the top of each dough balls. Bake for about 10 minutes. 
Let the cookies chill for 10 minutes before eating! Enjoy :)

Hungarian Kakaós Csiga (Chocolate Rolls)

Frankly, I missed baking so much! Even though I needed one baking-free month to lose all the weight I gained due to the excessive baking mania I got over this summer I just cannot stop it! So I decided that I don't have to give up this love of mine but I do have to figure out something that will not leave me end up gaining weight again. What to do, what to do...Bake only in the weekends! And probably I should get a grip and not stuff my face until I can't move...Which didn't really happen today. I ate like 6 of these lovely chocolate rolls...I guess, no dinner for Csilla tonight :P These rolls are from a traditional Hungarian pastry recipe. I called my Grandma to ask for the recipe and as it always happens with Grandma recipes she did not know the measurements...I don't know if it's only with my grandmas but they always work with their eyes so they usually have no idea how much grams I need from this or that... So I turned to an ancient Hungarian cookbook and that i…

Sajtos Pogácsa - Hungarian Cheese Puffs

We have different traditions in Hungary in the holiday season. Santa, I mean St Nicholas, comes on 6th December here and on Christmas Eve we are waiting for the little Jesus to bring our presents! Of course, as an almost 22-year-old I don't expect any gifts on Nicholas day...That is why I was so surprised when I got absolutely the coolest thing ever! A plastic bread-board! I had a huge wooden one that was very heavy, very hard to clean and needed such a big space. Look at this beauty :)

It has everything I might need. Measurements, unit converter, it can be rolled up, I don't need to use flour for kneading...I know exactly how big I need to knead the dough, it is perfect!  So, of course I just had to try it out! :)
I've been waiting for these cheese puffs' recipe for years now. It is a traditional, old school Hungarian pastry. It is made with yeast and it tastes amazing! These mini puffs are crunchy on the outside and super duper soft inside! This recipe is the ultimate c…

Healthy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Today I woke up and had the urge to bake something. At first, I was very VERY intrigued by a wonderful brownie recipe but then I came to my senses...that no, today is Wednesday! And brownies don't happen on Wednesdays around here. So I scolded myself for even thinking about it and swore that I will work out something vigorous instead :) But the scorching desire to bake something was still there! Ahhh! What to do now? I had a bag of unsalted roasted peanuts in the pantry so first let's make some peanut butter! That's healthy. And easy. Way too easy, I needed something more. So when I have peanut butter, let's make cookies with it!! Right??? Such a lovely idea!  I was looking through a couple PB cookie recipes and I originally wanted a no-flour kind but when I saw the amount of sugar each had... I was like no way am I gonna add 1 cup sugar to 1 cup PB. Let alone, I didn't even have 1 whole cup of PB. 
You really learn to appreciate things when you don't have a lot. …
