Chocolate Nutella Surprise Cookies
1 stick butter softened (1/2 cup) do not use margarine
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 eggs
Nutella or other hazelnut filling

Optional garnish, melted chocolate or powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 and prepare cookie sheet with parchment lining or silpat mat.
Beat the sugar and butter together until well blended in a heavy duty mixer. Add the eggs, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda and flour. Mix until it forms a ball using the flat paddle from the electric mixer. 

Roll small amounts of cookie dough into a ball, make an indent in the center like a well to fill with you finger. Fill with Nutella, I used a small baby teaspoon.

 Top with a small piece of flattened dough on top to seal.

 Bake for 10 minutes on 350 degree hot oven. Do not over bake. Cool in pan 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack. You can dust with powdered sugar or even drizzle with melted chocolate. These cookies are a Nutella's lovers dream!
