Salted Caramel and Nutella stuffed Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

September 23, 2013

The boo has started a little tradition, weekend cookouts with Khye Shin and Yi Ping. I missed the first cookout but for the second, my contribution were these wonderful Salted Caramel and Nutella Cookies that were up on SortedFood’s youtube channel earlier this week. When I saw this video I knew I just had to try this recipe out. It was simple, but sinful and heavy with chocolate.


Salted Caramel and Nutella Stuffed Double Chocolate Chip Cookies
sortedfood/Top with Cinnamon

1/2 cup (110g) butter
1 1/2 cups (350g) light brown sugar
1/2 cup (55g) cocoa powder
2 eggs
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking powder
2 cups (260g) all-purpose flour
3.5 oz (100g) milk or dark chocolate chips
flaky salt/ fleur de sel/ maldon salt, for sprinkling
approx. 1/2 cup (8 tbsp) nutella
1x recipe for Salted caramel (see notes for recipe) OR 15-16 caramel-filled chocolates

  1. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C)
  2. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Take off the heat and stir in the brown sugar and eggs.
  3. Then add the cocoa, salt and baking powder and stir until well combined. Add the flour and stir until no floury patches are left.
  4. Lastly stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Take 1 heaped tbsp of dough, use your finger make a large indentation the centre of the dough; fill the indentation with a small blob of nutella (like 1/2 tsp ish), and top it up with the still-warm salted caramel, or a caramel-filled chocolate.
  6. Top with a flattened tablespoon of dough, and seal the edges.
  7. Sprinkle with fleur de sel and bake for 8-10 minutes.

I bought Cadbury Caramello rounds to use in these but somehow it failed to melt the way the caramel-filled chocolates did in sortedfood’s video. Anyhow, these cookies are still the dream. Super chewy and moist (kind of like a brownie cookie) with nutella and caramel flavours, it’s hard to stop at one piece. The sprinkling of sea salt on the top made it even better.
