  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened to room temperature (113g)
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar packed (125g)
  • 1/4 cup sugar (50g)
  • 3/4 cups Nutella (245g)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour (187g)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch cornflour in UK
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chunks


  • Combine softened butter, sugars, and Nutella in the bowl of a stand mixer (or in a large bowl, using electric mixer) and beat until ingredients are combined and well-creamed.
  • Add egg and vanilla extract and stir until well-combined.
  • In a separate, medium-sized bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Gradually add dry ingredients to wet until completely combined -- be sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl with a spatula to ensure that all ingredients are well-incorporated.
  • Stir in chocolate chunks.
  • Cover bowl with cling wrap and chill for at least 3 hours.
  • Once dough has finished chilling, preheat oven to 375F (190C) and line cookie sheets with parchment paper. 
  • Remove from refrigerator and roll into approximately 2-Tablespoon-sized balls. Roll dough into balls and place on prepared cookie sheet at least 2" apart.  
  • Bake on 375F (190C) for 10-13 minutes, remove from oven and allow to cool completely on cookie sheet. Enjoy!
