Nutella-Stuffed Red Velvet Cookies Recipe

Prep Time : 15 min

Prep Time : 10 min

Total Time : ,

Servings :18 Dozen.


  • 1 2/3 cups (213 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup (32 grams) Dutch processed cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon (5 grams) baking soda
  • 1/2 (2.5 grams) teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cups (165 grams) lightly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (50 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon(14.3 grams) milk, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons (10 grams) vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 tablespoons (23 grams) red velvet emulsion (or regular red food coloring)
  • 3/4 cup (131 grams) chocolate chips, plus extra for topping.
  • 18 teaspoons (114 grams)Nutella


  • Mix together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • Beat the butter and both sugars together until light and fluffy.
  • Mix in the egg and beat well.
  • Beat in the milk, vanilla, and red velvet emulsion (or red food coloring).
  • Add in the flour mixture and mix until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Chill the dough for an hour. At the same time, drop teaspoon dollops of Nutella onto parchment paper and freeze.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  • Take out 1 tablespoon of dough and place a frozen teaspoon of Nutella onto the dough.
  • Add another half tablespoon of dough over the Nutella and cover the dollop.
  • Roll the dough between your hands to form a ball. Repeat the the remaining dough and Nutella. You may need to chill the dough again halfway through. I found the dough to be a bit sticky. I also kept my Nutella in the freezer and took out a teaspoon as I needed it because it thaws out fairly quickly.
  • Bake the cookies for 9 – 10 minutes. The cookies will still be puffy. Gently press down with a spatula and top with mire chocolate chips if desired.


All ingredients should be at room temperature specially butter and eggs Nutella thaws very fast…remove only 1-2 pieces at a time

Check the cookies after 10-12 mins..keep an eye on them …..don’t over bake them
