Nutella cookie cups recipe: a 2 ingredient chocolate filled cookie cups recipe that is so simple and so good. I mean, there’s Nutella! What’s not to love about that?

What makes these so easy is the shortcut that happens to be one of my favorites: refrigerated cookie dough. I always have some stashed in the fridge, which works perfectly for these filled cookie cups.

Instead of baking the cookies like usual, they’re baked in a muffin pan and formed into adorable little cups. They are the perfect size to hold a spoonful of Nutella.

These are great for sharing because they’re bite-sized and look great on a serving platter. I combine chocolate chip cookies with the Nutella, but with so many cookie flavors, you can easily change up this recipe to create all kinds of cookie cups.

2 Ingredient Nutella Cups

  • Ready to bake chocolate chip cookie dough – I like to use the kind already portioned into cookie dough balls. It’s easier than dealing with the tube of cookie dough.
  • Nutella – you could also use peanut butter or Biscoff or any other flavor spread. Like Oreo Peanut Butter!
  • Spray a mini muffin pan with baking spray and preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Place one cookie dough ball in each muffin mold and bake the cookies for 18 to 22 minutes. Allow them to cool for five minutes, and then use the handle of a wooden spoon to make a well in the center of each cookie so they form a cup.
  • Let the cookie cups cool completely, and then use a butter knife to gently loosen them around the edges so it’s easy to remove them from the pan.
  • Fill each cup with just under a tablespoon of Nutella, and they’re ready to serve!

These filled cookie cups using Pillsbury Dough is so good and easy with only having 2 ingredients
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Yield 24 servings
Serving Size 1 serving


  • 1 package 24 count ready to bake chocolate chip cookie dough (or any flavor)
  • 1 ½ cups Nutella (or any dessert spread)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray mini muffin pans with nonstick baking spray (the kind with flour) or grease and flour the pans. Don’t skip this step or your cookies will stick.
  • Place one cookie dough ball in each muffin pan cavity. Bake 18-22 minutes or until the cookies are fully baked.
  • Cool 5-10 minutes, then use the back of a wooden spoon handle or the rounded part of a ½ teaspoon to press the cookie into a cup.
  • Cool completely before trying to remove. Use a butter knife to carefully loosen and pop the cookie cup out of the muffin pan.
  • Place about ¾ tablespoon Nutella in each cookie cup. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.

Recipe Notes

  • Use any brand cookie dough (I used Pillsbury).
  • Any flavor cookie dough works too.
  • It is very important the cookies bake all the way through. They should no longer be glossy when you remove from the oven.
