Whats better than soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies? Soft and chewy chocolate chip cookie cups! What’s better than chocolate chip cookie cups? Peanut Butter Nutella Filled Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups!
That’s right, today not only are we filling chocolate chip cookie cups with peanut butter, but we’re taking Nutella and throwing that in the middle too because, well, we can.
You may have seen my Nutella Stuffed Blondie Cups and my Peanut Butter Stuffed Blondie Cups that I have posted on my blog previously. (If you haven’t check them out because they are life changing.) After playing around with turning blondies into cups with the Nutella and peanut butter ooey, gooey centers, I wondered what it would be like with the two flavours combined. However, I didn’t want to just put them into blondie cups again because that seemed a bit like cheating for a recipe so I thought I would try the flavours out in a cookie.
Trying to put peanut butter and Nutella in a cookie without making either the worlds biggest mess or the worlds biggest cookie was going to be tough. Thus the attempt at turning the cookies into little cups to see how that would fare.
Well as you can see, the result was very desirable! The cookie holds its shape and creates a soft and chewy yet a little crisp cup that is the same texture as a regular cookie with a mountain of gooey peanut butter and Nutella oozing from the center. Pure indulgence. These have a an entirely different flavour and texture to the blondie cups and both are equally delicious so I guess you will have to try them all to pick your favourite!
