Nutella Lava Cookies. You know you’re going to make them. Just look at them! Imagine a big scoop of your favourite ice cream dripping down one of these oozing beauties. Yeah, I thought so! I personally think these would make an incredible dinner party dessert. Well , these and a batch of Nutella stuffed peanut butter cookies – which are just as epic!

Here is what you will need to make 12.

  • 300g Nutella
  • 110g Unsalted Butter, room temp
  • 100g Soft Light Brown Sugar
  • 110g Golden Caster Sugar
  • 1 Egg, room temp
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 220g Plain Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 2 x 100g Bags of Milk Chocolate Chips


Essential Equipment

  • 12 Hole Cupcake Tin


Nutella Lava Cookies Recipe

Firstly, line a small baking sheet with baking paper, then spoon 12 heaped tsp of Nutella onto it. I find it easiest to use 2 teaspoons together to do this.

Then place in the freezer for about 2 hours to harden.

Once the Nutella is set, lightly grease the holes in the cupcake tin with a little butter and set to one side. Preheat your oven to 180°C/Fan 170°C..

Either in an electric stand mixer or a large bowl with an electric hand whisk, cream together the butter and both sugars until very light and fluffy. At least 5 minutes.

Next, add the egg & the vanilla extract and beat again until smooth.

Sift together the flour, bicarbonate of soda & the salt. Then, in thirds, add this to the dough & mix until just combined each time.

Finally add in the chocolate chips and mix a little until evenly dispersed throughout the dough.

Then take tablespoon sized balls of dough and press into the bottom of each hole.

Remove the Nutella blobs from the freezer and press one into each piece of dough.

Take more tablespoons of dough, flatten them into a discs in your hand, then press them onto the surface of each one. Make sure to completely cover the Nutella down the sides as well as on top.

Bake in the preheated oven for 15 – 20 minutes until beautifully golden on top. If you have hot spots in your oven, you may want to turn the tray around halfway through the cooking time for a more even bake.

Allow to cool completely in the tin before attempting to remove. They should pop out quite easily if you give them a little twist then pull them out.

Store in a metal container at room temperature (you may lose the crunch if you store in a plastic container.) These will last for 5 – 6 days.

Seriously, these Nutella Lava Cookies are epic. Therefore you need to make them, like NOW! They’re such a pleasant change from a regular chocolate chip cookie. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good chocolate chip cookie, but stuff it with Nutella and plop a big dollop of vanilla ice cream on top? Probably the most amazing cookies in the world!

I hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies, until next time.

    Que increíble se ven, voy hacerlas hoy pero tengo una pregunta azucar en polvo dorada la podría reemplazar por azúcar blanca normal?

    1. Emma says:

      Hi Martha. Thank you! Yes, you can replace the golden caster sugar with regular white caster sugar. Emma x

  2. Helen says:

    My cookies spread too much over the top and also sunk. Where do you think I went wrong. They do taste delicious. X

    1. Emma says:

      Hi Helen. It’s hard to know exactly without me being there with you. You may have overfilled each hole or possibly used baking powder instead of bicarbonate of soda? The temperature of your oven may have been too hot also. Emma x

    Hi, i made these a few times- the first two occasions they were perfect but i have since tried them a few more times and each time they get stuck to the pan and get destroyed!
    Dont know what i am doing different/wrong

    1. Emma says:

      Hey! That’s very odd that it’s worked before and now they’re sticking. Your pan hasn’t lost it’s none stick coating has it? If not, maybe try greasing the holes and/or lining the bottoms with circles of baking paper just in case? Emma x

    Thanks for the receipe….God blessed

    1. Emma says:

      You’re so very welcome Latifah! Emma x

      1. Helen says:

        Thank you. I must admit I did have baking soda and powder next to each other. I may have used the powder by mistake. Also my batter was very sticky. I couldn’t really flatten in my hands. Would there be a reason for that. I’m sorry to be a pain. They are so lovely to taste I really would like them to look good.

        1. Emma says:

          Hi Helen, you’re not being a pain at all! Different brands can react slightly different which could be the cause. If it’s too sticky, maybe try adding a little more flour and/or chilling the dough for an hour before using it. Emma x

  5. Anna says:

    I will definitely try for dinner ( Ramadan treat). If I opt to cancel our caster sugar can I replace it with normal white sugar or brown sugar?

    1. Miss KitchenMason says:

      Hi Anna. I would substitute it for another white sugar as brown/white sugars do different things in cookie recipes. Happy baking! Emma x
