  • Add flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Mix until combined. The dough should be soft, but not too sticky.
  • Take the Nutella out of the freezer. Using a large cookie scoop, fill the scoop most of the way, then press a large hole in the center with your fingers. Fill the hole with a chilled chunk of Nutella, then close the dough around the Nutella.
