Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie! Yummy Skillet Cookie


NO electric mixer needed! Just whisk and stir in your mixing bowl.

What a fun and easy experience in making one GIANT cookie! No lugging out that heavy electric stand mixer. No cleaning the big bowl and beater. Just use a medium mixing bowl, a whisk and spatula. It’s as easy as that!

There’s nothing hard about making this cute little skillet cookie. Mix up your dough according to directions below. Place a piece of parchment paper in the bottom of your little cast-iron skillet. Spread half of the cookie dough in the bottom. Spread the Nutella hazelnut goodness on top, leaving a ½” border all around the cookie. Take the other half of the cookie dough and spread it into a circle to fit in the skillet. Place it on top of the cookie, making sure it spreads out to the edge of the skillet. Press the edges down to seal in the hazelnut spread.


YUM! Let’s get making and baking!

This cast iron skillet cookie serves 3-6 people, depending on how large you slice it and what you use for toppings.


Prepare your cast iron skillet:

-Cut a circle of parchment paper to fit the bottom of the skillet, leaving long paper “handles” on four sides to make it easy to lift out after it has baked and cooled.

-Before you place the parchment paper into the skillet, preheat the skillet in the 350F degrees oven for about 20 years. When you’re ready to place the cookie dough in the skillet and bake, place the parchment paper in the bottom of the pan.


Preheat your oven to 350F degrees.


Gather up your Ingredients:

 ¼ C Sugar

 ¼ C Brown sugar

2 t Vanilla extract

¼ C Butter, melted

1 Egg yolk

½ C Flour

¼ t Baking soda

¼ t Salt

½ C Chocolate chips, semi-sweet

½ C Hazelnuts, rough chopped 

Nutella Filling:

¼ C Nutella hazelnut filling


Nutella Hazelnut Topping:

½ C Nutella spread

¼ C Hazelnuts, rough chopped

5 Hazelnuts, whole

5 Hazelnuts, sliced in half


Make and Bake:

-Preheat your cast iron skillet (without the parchment paper in it) so it can heat up while you’re making the cookie dough.

-In a mixing bowl, whisk the sugar, brown sugar together.

-Add and stir in the melted butter until completely combined.

-Stir in the egg yolk, whisking to combine completely.

-Sift in the flour, baking soda and salt, then stirring with a spatula or wooden spoon to combine well.

-Add the chocolate chips and rough chopped hazelnuts, stirring to distribute evenly.

-Make sure the parchment paper is in the skillet.

-Spread half of the cookie dough into the skillet from side to side. Set the other half aside.

-With an offset spatula, spread the Nutella spread on the bottom cookie dough, leaving about a half inch space all around the outside edge of the dough.

-Form the other half of the cookie dough into a circle to fit onto the top of the hazelnut spread.

-Lay it on top of the Nutella spared, lightly pressing the edges to help seal the filling between the two cookie layers.

-Bake at 350F degrees for 18-22 minutes.

-Take the skillet cookie out of the oven and allow to cool on a rack for 5-10 minutes.

-Spread the Nutella spread over the top. While the Nutella is still warm, sprinkle the rough chopped, whole and halved hazelnuts over the top.                                                                    

-A scoop of your favorite vanilla bean ice cream on top with a little chocolate sauce drizzled over all makes this an even more decadent dessert to share with your bestie. 


-Keep this baked skillet cookie at 3-5 days in an airtight container at room temperature if it doesn’t get gobbled up faster than that.

-To freeze the baked skillet cookie, wrap in plastic wrap, then in foil. I keep it in a sealable plastic bag with a label with the date, identity and how to thaw. Leave it in the layers of wrap, at room temperature for a couple of hours to thaw. Then unwrap and enjoy!

-To freeze the unbaked skillet cookie dough, wrap it in plastic wrap, then in a sealable plastic bag. To thaw for baking, leave the entire package, wrappings and dough, in the refrigerator overnight. Or, place it on the counter at room temperature for an hour or so. -Depending on how warm it is in the house, it might take 1-2 hours to thaw. It can then be baked according to the directions above.

This is a skillet cookie that's fun for the kids, too! Let them press the cookie dough into the room temp cast iron skillet and smear on the ooey gooey Nutella chocolate hazelnut spread. It's fun to do!


It’s fun to use the little cast-iron skillet to make a personal cookie big enough to share with a friend or kids. Top it with something special like chocolate drizzles, a dollop of Nutella, mini candies or a little whipped cream. Make it your own. However you serve it up, “Bake your own Memories!”
