Nutella Cookie Cups

Sharing is caring!

If these two-ingredient Nutella Cookie Cups don’t make your mouth water just a little, then your eyes must be closed! LOL

Not only are these Nutella Cookie Cups incredibly rich and decadent, but they’re also totally fast and easy to make!

Plus, if you use pre-made, refrigerated cookie dough (I promise, I don’t judge), they only have TWO, count ’em, TWO ingredients! 

Can you feel the love?

Kitchen tools and equipment needed:

Check out my recipe for Kudos Kookie sugar cookie dough (the one I used to use when I ran my own decorated cookie business) in case you’d like to use it for making these cookie cups.

I like having some stored in the freezer for just such an occasion.

Of course, you can always use your own favorite sugar cookie dough if you have one, or as mentioned above, store-bought cookie dough will work great too.

You be the judge of what you’ll use depending on how much time you have on your hands, and how long you figure you can hold off before digging your teeth into one of these babies! 😉

Here is my homemade sugar cookie dough recipe as seen in the featured video.

Feel free to store the baked cookie cups (before filling) in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Then once you’re ready to serve, thaw and fill.

It really couldn’t be easier!

You can store them in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to 7 days, but I guarantee they won’t last that long!

How many cookies does this recipe make?

This recipe makes 24 cookies that will take approximately 30 minutes to make.

Substitution ideas in place of the hazelnut spread:

  • fresh fruit, diced into small pieces
  • pudding (your favorite flavor)
  • orange curd or lemon curd whipped cream
  • chocolate ganache
  • (no-bake) cheesecake filling
  • whatever your imagination allows…

Additional Nutella recipes:

*Hazelnut Spread Cookie Bars (shown below)

Layered hazelnut spread cookie bars with pecans, peanut butter chips, and instant pudding are sure to become a family favorite!

*Swirled Nutella Banana Popsicles from Cupcakes and Kale Chips

*Vermont Hot Chocolate (shown below)

Vermont Hot Chocolate is sweetened with (what else) maple syrup, and Nutella. This delicious hot chocolate was inspired by the iconic holiday movie White Christmas, and is completely delicious!!

  • Roll the sugar cookie dough onto a lightly floured surface to ¼” thickness.
  • Use a 3″ round cookie cutter to cut out circles from the dough.
  • Gently press the cookie rounds into mini muffin tins that have been sprayed with baking spray.
  • Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven until golden brown.
  • Cool completely on wire racks.
  • Generously fill the cookie cups with chocolate hazelnut spread.
  • Serve and enjoy.
