Reeses-Stuffed Nutella Cookies

This post is devoted to how messy my (mom’s) kitchen gets when I bake, and the ongoing struggle that my mother and I deal with over what the definition of a “clean” kitchen is. More often than not, I believe that I have thoroughly cleaned the kitchen, only for my mom to come downstairs and ask me when I plan to start cleaning…so that gets awkward. Anyways, just to show you all where she’s coming from, the kitchen DOES indeed look like a small tornado hit it while I’m baking…

 

 

 

 

 

I know you all deeply wonder about the “behind the scenes,” or what it looks like before you get a finished product like this…

By now, you’ve forgotten all about my messy kitchen, and your mouths are (hopefully) watering due to these Reeses-stuffed Nutella cookies. You heard that correctly. The batter contains almost a cup of Nutella, while the cookies themselves have a Reeses cup inside.

 

 

 

What could physically be better and more decadent than these? I really can’t answer that, but please let me know if you find something!

 

Nutella Cookies

What you will need:

  • 1/2 C butter, salted, at room temperature
  • 1/2 C brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 C sugar
  • 1 C cake flour
  • 1/2 C all purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 C Nutella (I used 1 cup)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 C semi sweet chocolate chips (optional)

 

Making the Cookies

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper
  • In a bowl beat butter until soft, about one minute
  • Add in sugars and beat for an additional 2-3 minutes or until soft and fluffy.
  • Add in vanilla, egg and Nutella. Mix together well.
  • Add in flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until just incorporated.
  • Add in chocolate chips.
  • Bake for 8 minutes

To add the Reeses, roll the cookie dough into a ball and place a mini Reeses cup in the middle, then take a much smaller ball of dough and press it over the Reeses to cover it completely. Flatten the cookie slightly before baking, and make sure that the Reeses is completely covered.

 

I actually have to apologize that I was in such a rush to get back to school on the day I baked these that I totally forgot to take pictures of a half-bitten cookie in order to show off the middle! You’ll just have to make them yourself! :) Enjoy!

 

P.S. Thanks mom for letting me make a mess of the kitchen every time I come home, AND for supplying me with all of the ingredients I need! Love you! (I’ll have a list on Friday)!
