Nutella Stuffed Snowball Cookies are the perfect addtion for your holiday cookie platter. Best of all, these classic melt in your mouth shortbread cookies are so easy to make with a surprise Nutella filling inside.
Over the weekend, we were packaging up the rest of the fudge and cookies to give away along with these Nutella Stuffed Snowball Cookies a few years ago. So I decided to update the pictures and repost them again in case you guys are looking for a different cookie recipe.
They are one of our favorite cookies that we make every year along with these peppermint stuffed snowballs and make the best homemade gifts!
They start off with a buttery shortbread like dough and you can choose to add finely chopped pecans, walnuts or hazelnuts.
Once the dough is done, you can either bake it right away or wrap it up to chill in the fridge for about half an hour. I usually chill the dough because I find it helps make the dough easier to handle and the cookies are more likely to stay round.
After they are baked, they get rolled into a pillow of powdered sugar and get transformed into the most poppable and addictive cookie.
They are perfect for any holiday cookie exchange and we can’t seem to get enough of the surprise Nutella filling!
