5 Ingredient Nutella Stuffed Funfetti Cookies by Not Your Momma's Cookie

Did you make any New Year’s Resolutions? If you did, eating healthier is probably one of them. And, I bet you’re doing really well and eating things like arugula and chia seeds and getting up early every day to exercise. I’m super proud of you! So, please don’t be mad at me for doing this…

5 Ingredient Nutella Stuffed Funfetti Cookies by Not Your Momma's Cookie

Not only did I make soft and chewy Funfetti cookies….I also stuffed ‘em with an ooey gooey Nutella center. Plus, you only need 5 ingredients! That makes them totally irresistible. Upon taking one bite, the husband said, “Mmmm…you better lock these up.” He knows the way to my heart is complimenting my baked goods!

5 Ingredient Nutella-Stuffed Funfetti Cookies
Only 5 ingredients needed to make these ooey, gooey Funfetti cookies stuffed with globs of Nutella.
Recipe type: Drop Cookies
Serves: 20
  • 1 box of Pillsbury Funfetti cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • Scant ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Approximately ½ cup Nutella (about 1 teaspoon per cookie)
  1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Using a small cookie scoop, scoop teaspoon size balls of Nutella onto cookie sheet. Freeze for about 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together the Funfetti mix, eggs, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract until combined.
  4. Take a walnut sized ball of dough and place a frozen Nutella ball into the center. Roll the dough ball in your hands until it is smooth and no Nutella is exposed. Place on cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 9-10 minutes. Allow cookie to cool on cookie sheet – they will look too soft at first, but do not overbake!
Idea for freezing Nutella centers from Bake at 350.

Not mad at you for sharing these– these look too good not to share :)

Thanks, Elizabeth! :)

Hello yummyiness!!!! I’m going to share this with my bestie Kim. She’s a nutella addict.


4 Jennifer January 7, 2013 at 11:36 am

They are so good, Melissa! My husband keeps snatching them and making happy, groaning noises – I think they may be his favorite cookie that I’ve ever made!


5 Melissa {Simply Sweets by Honeybee} January 7, 2013 at 1:06 pm

So he’s being a cookie monster. Lol! I have a couple recipes on my blog & would love to do more but I’m creatively challenged in that department. I just love seeing recipes on blogs. The pics are always so great.


6 Jennifer January 7, 2013 at 1:09 pm

He’s always a cookie monster ;) I have more trouble coming up with creative cookie ideas than recipes! I don’t think I could post new cookies 3 times a week :)


7 Melissa {Simply Sweets by Honeybee} January 7, 2013 at 1:12 pm

That I totally get! That’s why I’m trying to think of other things I could do to keep my reader’s interested. You have a fantastic blog & you are so creative. Just keep doing what you’re doing :)

These are super genius!! You had me at chewy funfetti cookies. BONUS that they’re stuffed!


9 Jennifer January 7, 2013 at 11:37 am

Thanks, Carrie! I love Funfetti – it is so happy and fun! I couldn’t help but add Nutella, which makes everything better :)


10 The Partiologist January 7, 2013 at 11:52 am

What a Funfetti way to start the New Year! Looks great!


11 Jennifer January 7, 2013 at 11:54 am

Thanks, Kim! Comments with puns are the best! :)


12 Mike @ Semi Sweet January 7, 2013 at 12:08 pm

Oh, man. I quasi-committed to eating better this year. Why must you tempt me so with these yummies?! :-P Being only 5 ingredients really pushes it over the edge. Oh, well… nothing like adding a few more minutes on the treadmill won’t fix.


13 Jennifer January 8, 2013 at 1:54 pm

Haha – sorry, Mike! If you just have one, that’s not so bad…IF you can have just one… ;)


14 Sue {munchkin munchies} January 7, 2013 at 12:43 pm

These sound yummy, simple and are cute too:) Love a cookie with a surprise inside!


15 Jennifer January 7, 2013 at 12:52 pm

Thanks, Sue! My husband LOVES them :)


16 Erin @ Dinners, Dishes and Desserts January 7, 2013 at 5:48 pm

Pretty sure these were made for me! Nutella obsessed!!


17 Jennifer January 7, 2013 at 6:30 pm

Me too! :) I’ve made some other fun Nutella things before (like Nutella fudge), but I have to say that these may be my favorite – they are just SO easy and absolutely addictive!


18 Elizabeth January 7, 2013 at 9:24 pm

woah! these look so incredibly soft and delicious. I love that these cookies involve nutella and sprinkles (well, funfetti)!!


19 Jennifer January 8, 2013 at 8:29 am

They are so good! My husband was devouring them like crazy. I mean, how could the love child of Funftti and Nutella not be super delicious? :)


20 Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious January 8, 2013 at 2:56 am

These look like way too much fun to eat!


21 Jennifer January 8, 2013 at 8:29 am

Thanks, Chung-Ah! :)


22 Britt January 8, 2013 at 1:03 pm

Two of my favorite things in one! I’m ADDICTED to Nutella. These look so delicious.


23 Jennifer January 8, 2013 at 1:53 pm

Nutella is the absolute best, isn’t it!? :)


24 Karly January 9, 2013 at 10:58 am

You did NOT just stuff Nutella in these cookies. No. It’s not true and I won’t look at it and you’re evil.

(Okay, so I just stuffed some Nutella in chocolate chip cookies last night and then I died. So good!)


25 Jennifer January 9, 2013 at 12:14 pm

I don’t think Miss Nutella Brownies can talk about being evil ;) I’m DYING to try those – I think I might have enough Nutella left over actually…hmmm…my afternoon plans may have just changed!


26 Jennifer Dawn January 9, 2013 at 4:26 pm

Two of my favorite things combined into one! I’d love it if you stopped by my weekly link party and shared this. http://thelifeofjenniferdawn.blogspot.com/2013/01/a-little-bird-told-me-link-party-24.html


27 Jennifer January 9, 2013 at 4:28 pm

Thanks, Jennifer! I’ll check it out :)


28 Kelly Stephens January 17, 2013 at 6:53 pm

Hi Jennifer!

These cookies are amazing! I am still fairly new to the blogging world and have a cookie blog as well: http://www.cookieclinic.blogspot.com. Would you mind if I featured your cookies next week? I will link back to your site. These are too good not to share!



29 Jennifer January 17, 2013 at 7:22 pm

Hi Kelly! I’d love to be featured! Feel free to pull an image from the web, or shoot me an email if you want a high res version. As long as you link back and don’t copy the entire recipe, it’s all good to me :) Let me know if you need anything else and I’ll be sure to check out your blog too!


30 Kelly Stephens January 18, 2013 at 5:08 pm

Thanks, Jennifer! Look for them in the next week or two!


31 Jennifer January 18, 2013 at 5:42 pm

Will do!


32 Courtney January 31, 2013 at 8:39 pm

These look amazing, thanks for the recipe! Do you know if you can freeze the nutella ahead of time?


33 Jennifer January 31, 2013 at 8:55 pm

Hi Courtney – since you technically aren’t even supposed to refrigerate Nutella, I wouldn’t store it in the freezer for any real length of time. But, it freezes quite fast for this recipe – just put it in the freezer, make the dough and then it should be ready soon!


34 Amy February 13, 2013 at 11:46 am

What do you mean when you say “scant 1/3 cup vegetable oil”? And can I use a different oil, say, coconut oil?


35 Jennifer February 13, 2013 at 12:11 pm

Hi Amy! It just means a little less than 1/3 cup. Coconut oil is quite different and solid at room temperature, so I would stick with vegetable oil. Hope that helps!


36 Sabrina February 13, 2013 at 11:45 pm

I’d absolutely love to try these, but I don’t believe Pillsbury Funfetti cake mix is sold in Canada. I’ve never seen any Pillsbury cake mix products, just the pre-mixed stuff in the tubes. I just want to clarify that any old box cake mix will do?


37 Jennifer February 14, 2013 at 7:19 am

Hi Sabrina! I haven’t tried it with other mixes, but I think it would act exactly the same, so experiment away! :) If you wanted the Funfetti look, you could use a white cake mix and add multi-colored sprinkles. Hope that helps!


38 Sabrina February 14, 2013 at 1:28 pm

I figured as much but I thought I’d double check! Many thanks!


39 kaifii March 10, 2013 at 9:41 am

just tried the recipe and Loved it
thanks for sharing
you can check my cookies result



40 Jennifer March 10, 2013 at 9:43 am

So glad you liked it! :)


41 Ali March 28, 2013 at 8:57 am

My first time, I had to make 2 batches in 2 days because these were such a hit! My fiance loves them and he isn’t even a huge fan of sweets. When I make them for a crowd, they are the first thing gone. Thanks for posting!


42 Jennifer March 29, 2013 at 12:08 pm

Thanks so much for letting me know, Ali! I love to hear when people like my recipes :)


43 Ali July 30, 2013 at 4:30 pm

This sounds great! Going to try it using chocolate chunk cookie dough though, instead of funfetti! Thanks for sharing!!! :)


44 Jennifer July 30, 2013 at 4:31 pm

Sounds awesome, Ali! :)


45 Jennifer January 7, 2013 at 6:29 pm

Aww, Melissa, thank you. The positive feedback means so much to me :)
