Super Duper 8 Nutella Lava Cookies

Super Duper Yummylicious is the only thing I can say about these cookies. For once my husband is complaining why didn't I bake more! Light crust on the outer, crunchy roasted almonds bits when you sink your teeth into the chocolicious cookie and it oozes with gooey Nutella when you reach the core of these babies.

This wonderful recipe is again  from my baking partner, G. According to her the original recipe uses hazelnuts but since I ran out of hazelnuts and left with some almonds in my fridge, she decided to improvise with almonds.

Everyone at home loves it.. hope you like it too! Definitely a keeper for me.

Makes only 8 large Cookies

60 grams whole almonds
60 grams butter - divided into small cubes
170 grams best quality semi sweet or dark chocolates ( I used half of each)
1 large egg
1/3 cup fine granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch salt
8 teaspoon Nutella (freeze in the fridge)

2) Melt chocolate and butter with medium low heat. Please do not burn.
3) In a large bowl, add egg, sugar and vanilla and whiz at high speed till creamy.
4) Add chocolate mixture and mix well.
5) Add flour, baking powder and salt. Whiz till creamy.
6) Roughly chopped almonds and mix well with spoon. Cover with cling wrap.
7) Place cookie dough in fridge for an hour.

Preheat oven at 190 degree C
1)Scoop the harden cookie dough with an ice-cream scoop then make a hole in the middle for a teaspoon harden nutella. Cover properly and form a ball.
