From my kitchen to yours, thank you for stopping by today! There’s something so wonderful about sharing recipes that have brought joy and a little bit of magic to my own home. I hope this recipe brightens your day as much as it does mine. And let me tell you, these Nutella Stuffed Red Velvet Cookies are anything but ordinary!

I promised you versatile, and here’s proof! These cookies combine the rich, cocoa-infused red velvet flavor with a heartwarming surprise of gooey Nutella in the middle. Every bite is a decadent discovery that makes your taste buds dance with delight.

Ingredients

To make these scrumptious cookies, you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon red food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup Nutella (or more, for the generous hearts!)

How to Make Nutella Stuffed Red Velvet Cookies

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and set aside.
  3. In a larger bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, followed by the red food coloring and vanilla extract.
  4. Alternately mix in the flour mixture and buttermilk, starting and ending with the flour. Be sure not to overmix.
  5. Scoop about a tablespoon of dough, flatten slightly, and place a dollop of Nutella in the center. Cover with another flattened piece of dough and seal the edges.
  6. Place cookies on the prepared baking sheet, ensuring they are spaced apart.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes until just set. Let them cool on the pan for a couple of minutes before transferring to a wire rack.

Helpful Tips

  • Chill the dough: If your dough feels too sticky to handle, chilling it for about 30 minutes can make it easier to work with.
  • Don’t overbake: These cookies should be soft and chewy; they will set as they cool, so it’s better to pull them out early than late!

Substitutions/Variations

  • Gluten-Free: Swap all-purpose flour for a gluten-free flour blend.
  • Vegan: Use vegan butter, a plant-based milk in place of buttermilk, and a suitable egg substitute.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can I make these cookies without food coloring? Absolutely! The cookies will taste the same, just without the red velvet flair.
  2. How much Nutella should I use per cookie? A teaspoonful is perfect, but feel free to adjust based on your love for Nutella!

Storage Instructions

Store these cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. For a longer shelf life, you can freeze them for up to 3 months. Just let them thaw at room temperature before enjoying.
