Nutella S’Mores Cookies

Sharing is caring!

These Nutella S’Mores Cookies are delicious, cute little cookies that are perfect for sharing with those you love. You can shape them into hearts or make them like a thumbprint cookie – the choice is yours.

Nutella S'Mores Cookies drizzled with chocolate

They are not difficult to make but do take a little patience.

I start by making graham cracker crumbs in my food processor.  I set them aside and then make the cookie dough.   I then take 1 tablespoon of dough and form it into a ball.  I like to make all of my balls at once.  Then I dip them, one at a time, in an egg white that I have whisked until frothy.  After the egg white, I then roll each ball into graham cracker crumbs and then set them on a parchment lined cookie sheet.

I then take a dough ball and insert a finger – or thumb – into the middle to make a well.  Then I carefully try to press an indentation at the top to make the top part of the heart.  Then I pull a little bit of the dough at the bottom to make it look like a point.

If you don’t want to make them heart-shaped, that is okay.  Just make a well in the center.

At this point they are ready to go into the oven.  Once they have baked, I remove them and allow them to cool completely.  (If the centers of the hearts have puffed up, gently push them back down before they start cooling.)

Nutella and Smores cookies

Then I take Nutella and spoon a small amount into the center.  It probably takes only about 1/2 a teaspoon.

Once they have cooled you can drizzle a little chocolate on top.  I didn’t have luck with my chocolate topping, so I am sharing my mom’s recipe for chocolate frosting/glaze with you.  It is the recipe she uses on her cookies.

    Now if you didn’t make the cookies heart-shaped, you can buy a bag of Jet-Puffed heart-shaped strawberry marshmallows and top the round thumb-prints with them.  They are still quite adorable.
