Contest Winner Announced:  Congratulations to our winner of the JIF Tasting Giveaway Package, Kelsey, who said “Wow! What a great giveaway, Nikki! I would love to win this. I think the first thing I would do would be to make cheesecake bars swirled with the mocha cappuccino spread. YUM!” Check your email, Kelsey, to claim your prize!

Chocolate Hazelnut Surprise CookiesWhen it comes to peanut butter, there is no question that I’m a choosy mom.  I choose JIFEvery.Time.  Now, JIF has broken out of its shell and gone hazelnuts!  Needless to say, when they contacted me a few months ago about trying their new hazelnut spreads, not only was I interested, but I was immediately excited.  I knew I would love it, and love it I do!!

As any weary mother would, I first opened the jars and scooped some out (using a cookie, of course) to eat straight up. I had to stop myself so that I would have enough left to use in a recipe or two.

The box from JIF also included homemade vanilla bean marshmallows from Three Tarts (NYC) and a package of graham crackers.  So, when Ben arrived home for his lunch break, we microwaved S’mores, first with the chocolate flavored hazelnut spread, and then of course, we had to have a second one with the mocha cappuccino flavor.  To die for.

Since I’ve been on a cookie baking kick the last few months, largely due to having loads of kids to share with in our neighborhood, I decided I needed to make cookies with the new hazelnut spreads. Right away, my mind went to stuffing this goodness into chocolate chip cookies.

After three trial runs, I came up with a chocolate chip cookie base that is perfect for enveloping a dollop of chocolate hazelnut cheer.  Do you remember those store-bought cookies we had as kids with the chocolate centers?  They were crispy cookies, and that’s exactly what I was going for with these.  I didn’t want pillowy or soft.  I achieved crispy edges, yet chewy towards the center, with a surprise of chocolate hazelnut spread in the middle.

Before we get to the recipe, let’s talk about your chance to win a trial of JIF’s new hazelnut spreads, with a few other goodies!  One of you will win the following package:

Chocolate Hazelnut Surprise Cookies

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 2 dozen

Serving Size: 1 cookie

Chocolate Hazelnut Surprise Cookies

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips, or 1 cup standard chocolate chips
  • JIF chocolate hazelnut spread

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mat.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time and mix until thoroughly combined. Stir in the vanilla.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Gradually add to the butter/sugar mixture. Stir until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Scoop six 1-tablespoon sized dough balls onto each baking sheet (12 total). Using your thumb, press a dent in the center of each dough ball. Fill each thumbprint with about a teaspoon of chocolate hazelnut spread. Carefully top with another tablespoon of dough, pinching the seams together to seal in the hazelnut spread, not allowing it to ooze out. (Following video helps demonstrate.)

Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, until the edges just start to crisp.


You may use your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and just fill the centers with the spread. I like this chocolate chip cookie base because of the crisp edges and chewy center. Take note, though, that these cookies spread, so allow no more than 6-8 cookies on each baking sheet.

The following video helps explain how to carefully top the cookies without allowing the hazelnut spread to ooze out.

  226. The cookies look incredible! I would definitely be making those, as well as some cupcakes filled with the chocolate hazelnut spread!

  227. Oh wow – those cookies look amazing!

  228. I would like to make some crepes!

  230. I have seen this in the store and wanted to try it so badly! I think it would be excellent to stuff inside of a chocolate cookie…gooey double chocolate! I’m sure your chocolate chip recipe would also be divine!

  231. The cookies, for sure.

  232. Sounds so good I could eat it off tree bark! I would love to make gooey cookies with it or just did graham crackers in it!

  233. Drizzling it over waffles sounds divine! So does eating it right out of the jar!

  235. We would definitely spread this on crepes for a Saturday morning breakfast. Yum!

  236. I’d eat it off a spoon!

  237. Ooooh, I’m sure I will be making those cookies! And I will of course have to use it for (as my four-year-old calls it) “CHOCOLATE toast!!:)

  238. Isabel Acosta says:

    I would love to try the spread on my waffles or on a toasted bagel

  239. Kristen Lopez says:

    I want to eat it with a spoon! And if I don’t eat it all that way then I’ll put it on an English muffin with some slice bananas…yum!

  240. If I won, I would make the cookies because they look Yummy! Then I would make a smoothie!

  245. I would use it on bagels!

  246. Fun!!! If you want an honest answer, I’d probably just scoop it straight out of the jar with a spoon. :<}

  247. I would dip animal crackers in it. Yum!

  248. I follow @Jif on Twitter.

  249. Ryan Wartick says:

    I would spread it on everything! But, I would also make those surprise cookies.

  250. Yum…I think I’d try it on pancakes, or just dip graham crackers in it.

  251. Since I’m Canadian and can’t enter :(, I want to know where you got your apron. If it’s homemade, do you have a pattern you would be willing to share? I love it!

    • Hi Kendra. I’m sorry you can’t enter! 🙁 Someday I’ll have to sponsor my own giveaway and involve Canada, as well, since I know I have a lot of readers from there! 🙂

      I bought my apron when we lived in California at a store called Ross. I’m not sure if you have those stores or not. I checked the tag on it, and it just says “Paisley Manor” as if it’s the company name, but I Googled it and this apron does not come up. Maybe you’ll have better luck! Have you checked Anthropologie’s aprons? I love those, as well! They had some on sale the last time I visited, so maybe they still do… 🙂

  252. I would “sample” these with a spoon…then if there was any left I would try your Chocolate Hazelnut Surprise Cookies…if there was any left 🙂

  253. I think I’d do all of the above, try the cookie recipe, put it on toast, make s’mores with it and eat it off a spoon!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  256. Oh YES I would like to make these cookies! And will definitely lick it straight from the spoon!

  257. Oh My LAND!!! What couldn’t you do with this??? It looks amazing! I am about to lick my screen! Delightful cookies, yummy toast in the am with a steaming hot coffee, brownies with a twist, french toast….the possibilities are endless! drool……

  258. I would use Jif Chocolate Flavored Hazelnut Spread as a filling inside of a coffee flavored cupcake. I would then cover the cupcake with espresso spiked buttercream sprinkled with crushed hazelnuts.

  259. I would eat it off a spoon first! Then i would make these cookies!

  260. I think I would like it on toast. Yum!

  261. Following @Jif on Twitter @GiveKacieStuff

  262. I would use the hazelnut spreads on crescent rolls for a filling, dip marshmellows in them, spread them on graham crackers for a snack, dip apples in it for a dip, and simply dip my spoon in for a quick treat!

  263. I followed you and Jif on twitter and tweeted about the offer @mcooper1019

  264. The first way I would try it is with a big ole spoon. Then I think I would try it in a cookie recipe. Yum!!!!!!!!!!

  265. I’ll use it to make cookies.

  266. I am following you on Twitter!

  267. I want to make the cookies, put it on ice cream, and eat it with a spoon!

  268. Wow! I would eat with a spoon, use it in my cookies, use it for almost anything that has chocolate in it. I love chocolate and this would just add to my list of things to make with it.
    Gives variety to my eating and baking now. Thanks for reminding me about this.

  269. I would make crepes and slather the jif inside with strawberries, mmmmmm…

  270. Jen Atchison says:

    I would make your cookies! Then I would make some no-bakes because they are my FAVORITE and I have a feeling this would make them amazing. Then I would eat the mocha kind straight out of the jar while the first batch was baking. Ooohh — I would melt it and put it on ICE CREAM! I’ll use it to make homemade Reese’s.. And I’ll put it in a homemade ice cream cake :)The possibilities are endless. I JUST bought some of the ‘to go’ packs today! What a coincidence!

  271. umm… is eating it from a spoon ok for an answer!!?! 😉 cause that is what i fully intend to do as soon as i receive it.. please let me win! 🙂

  272. Thanks for hosting such a fantastic giveaway. I cannot wait to get my prize package and start baking!
