Salted Chocolate Chunk Cookie Sandwiches with Nutella Cream

Crispy and chewy salted chocolate chunk cookies with Nutella buttercream filling.Pour yourself a extra tall glass of milk!

Is it even possible to take a chcolate chip cookie to the next level? Oh yes…we did!! Add some high quality chocolate chunks and salt to a crisp and chewy cookie and then layer a Nutella cream filling. The crisp cookie softens from the filling, making it extra yummy! Have you poured yourself a glass of milk yet?

Oh my! How many cookies my kids had to taste test before finding the perfect cookie for that filling. Not that I heard them complain:)

Chcolate chip cookie can be classified broadly into 2 main categories- soft and cakey kind / thin and crisp kind. My first choice was the thin and crisp, but the cookie was too crisp for the soft and creamy filling. So, that was out.

Next,  a cakey cookie made it more like a whoopie pie than a cookie sandwich. So, I ended up with a recipe that made a crisp but chewy cookie that softened from the filling after few hours, the filling oozes out a touch around the sides while biting and was perfect for licking! It was the one!!!

The filling is more like a Nutella frosting and is delicious licked with just a spoon. Just saying:)
