INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a standard size muffin pan with cooking spray and set aside.

  • In a large bowl, add flours, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine. Set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugars for 2 minutes until light and fluffy. Then add in the egg and vanilla extract and beat for 2 more minutes.

  • Slowly add in the flour mixture and mix until all combined and well-incorporated.

  • Using a spatula, fold in the chocolate chips.

  • On a parchment covered try make 10 drops of Nutella which is a spoon fool and set in the freezer for 20 minutes

  • Using a medium cookie dough scoop, scoop out 1.5 - 2 tbsp. of cookie dough, flatten it to the bottom of the muffin tin. Repeat with the dough until all 10 of the muffin tin bottoms are lined with cookie dough.

  • Take a spoon of the frozen Nutella and place in the middle of the dough that's in the muffin tin. Then, take the remaining cookie dough and cover the Nutella layer.

  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the edges are brown. Immediately run a paring knife around the cookie cups when they come out of the oven so you can loosen them for easy removal later.

  • Cool completely before removing them and eating :)

  • Top with vanilla ice cream for a sinfully delicious treat!
