Why have a regular chocolate chip cookie when you can have a giant chocolate chip cookie that is as big as your head! And stuffed with Nutella! It’s then taken a step further, made with brown butter, melty semisweet chocolate, and flaky sea salt.


  • 1/2 cup (65g) all purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup (55g) salted butter + 1 tbsp
  • 1/4 cup (50g) light brown sugar, packed
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips + 2 tbsp
  • 2 heaping spoonfuls of Nutella
  • Flaky sea salt, for sprinkling on top


  1. Add 1/4 of butter to a saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Heat until melted and browned. Pour into a measuring glass and mix in the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter. Place in the refrigerator to cool.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  4. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, sugar, and cooled brown butter (it’s ok if it’s still a bit warm, just not piping hot).
  5. Whisk in the vanilla and egg yolk. Mix well until completely smooth.
  6. Add in the dry ingredients and use a rubber spatula to mix together the dough. Then mix in 1/3 cup of chocolate chips.
  7. Cover the bowl and chill for 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  8. Once chilled, divide the dough in half. Roll one half into a ball and press it flat into the center of the baking pan, forming a burger patty shape.
  9. Mold the edges of the cookie dough to create a small wall around the sides (see picture in post for reference).
  10. Add two heaping spoonfuls of Nutella to the center of the dough.
  11. With the remaining dough, roll into a ball and press it flat in your hands so that it’s slightly larger than the Nutella filled dough.
  12. Lay the second half of dough on top of the first half and cup the edges to seal in the Nutella.
  13. Gently seal in any potential cracks on the surface and then add about 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips on top.
  14. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the edges are a light golden brown and the center looks barely underdone. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt when it’s fresh from the oven.
  15. Allow the cookie to cool on the baking pan for about 15-20 minutes. Transfer it to a cooling rack if desired, or just eat straight from the pan. Enjoy!
