Nutella Stuffed Churro Cookies combine your favorite cinnamon and sugar churro flavor with Nutella! Buttery, soft cookies are stuffed with gooey, melty Nutella and they are so good!
Churros bring up all of the best memories: county fairs, amusement parks, theme parks, and Friday nights wandering around Costco. Fried pastry dough coated in cinnamon sugar just can’t be beat! We want you to be able to enjoy churros anytime! The thing is, not everyone loves frying as much as we do. Enter: churro cookies.
Churro Cookies are soft, buttery, and covered in that cinnamon sugar coating we’ve all grown to know and love, no frying required. We know, we could have stopped there, churro cookies are delicious in and of themselves, but why would we? We kicked it up a notch and stuffed our churro cookies with Nutella. You’re going to love it!
If you would like to use chocolate instead of Nutella, we found that individually wrapped Dove chocolates are the perfect size to stuff inside a cookie! Simply unwrap the chocolate, place in the center of your dough disc, and wrap your dough around the chocolate just as we did with the Nutella.
We are sorry to report that caramel really doesn’t work to stuff in these churro cookies. You can’t really taste the caramel, other than the added sugariness.
If you are making chocolate stuffed churro cookies for a special occasion, you will want to plan your timing well. This recipe requires freezing drops of Nutella for 30 minutes, as well as refrigerating your prepared dough wrapped around the Nutella for another 30 minutes. To save time, you can always freeze your Nutella the night before you need it. After the 30 minutes of freezing, just take all of your frozen Nutella drops and place them in an airtight bag and back into the freezer until you’re ready to use them.
Can I make these without a mixer?
You will definitely want to use either a hand mixer or a stand mixer to cream together the butter, sugar and cream cheese.

Well there goes my diet to get ready for Christmas!!! Two of my faves in one. I love your incredible gift of coming up with delicious food. I will have to make this tomorrow!
Would it work to stuff them with dulce de leche? I hope so!
These cookies are next level!! Will put in my cooking file for the holidays!! I don’t think I’ve ever had a cookie work out as easy, and as instructions said!! I did not add the corn syrup!! They don’t need the sweet….I did not handle the dough alot and when it got warm I added back in regrig for a few minutes, before forming a few of the last cookies…then regrigerated all for a short time. They are tender and goey, and a huge snack!! Might make a little smaller next time!!
Can I freeze these cookies?
