Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Muffins are moist and delicious, easy homemade muffins loaded with dark chocolate chips and oozing with the hazelnut spread we all love. When pantry ingredients meet up with time on your hands, you get one mouthwatering result!
Hope you’re still safe, healthy and making the most of this bizarre time. Here in NJ, we’re at 45+ days of quarantine (lost count), and like you, craving quality time with family and friends like no other. While my son’s senior trip to Orlando was officially cancelled yesterday we’re still holding on to a slight glimmer of hope that schools will re-open even just in June to selfishly give him and the Class of 2020 some closure to what their final months of high school should have been.
Prom at the moment is postponed to TBD. Commencement and Project Graduation…🤷♀️ My heart is heavy for all high school and college seniors, and their families who had the rite of passage celebratory rugs pulled out from under them. If you’re feeling any of this firsthand or rings true for you in some way, I’m sending HUGE virtual hugs and you’re definitely entitled to more than one muffin at any given time.😉

How to Make Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Muffins
To be honest, these Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Muffins practically make themselves. Have two large bowls at the ready. One for dry ingredients, the other for wet ingredients. Fold the wet into the dry, and whammo! You’ll have a perfectly imperfect, thick lumpy batter kinda like when making good old-fashioned, country-style pancakes.
Once you have that perfectly, imperfect batter ready to go, grab an ice cream scoop or spoon of choice to divide half of the batter among a standard muffin pan. Then I used a small melon scoop to dollop Nutella in the middle of each muffin cup.
With the Nutella safely nestled in each cup, grab that ice cream scoop again to top the muffins off with more batter. To make them extra special, sprinkle on extra chocolate chips and brown sugar for perfectly coated muffin tops.
You’ll love the aroma wafting through the house as these beauties bake. And, they’ll certainly lure the kids out of bed to start ‘school’! Happy baking and stay healthy, friends! xx, Kim💕 #2020Strong #hopeisntcancelled
