Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/3 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup good quality cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Sugar for rolling
  • Chocolate Nutella Filling:
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup Nutella
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3-4 Tbsp heavy cream (+ more if needed)
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Sprinkles
  • Chocolate Dipped Stamped Cookies:
  • White chocolate chips, melted
  • Semisweet chocolate chips, melted
  • Sprinkles

Directions

Chocolate Stamped Sugar Cookies:

Preheat oven to 350° F. Cream butter and brown sugar with electric mixer at medium speed until fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Add flour mixture to batter slowly. Blend thoroughly. Turn out dough on surface and knead until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for 2-3 hours. Let dough sit out for a few minutes to soften slightly. Roll into golf-ball sized balls and roll in granulated sugar. Press dough with cookie stamps on baking sheet to release designs. Bake 10-12 minutes. Cool on rack. Makes about 18 cookies.

Nutella Cookie Sandwiches:

Using a mixer with a paddle attachment, beat together the butter, Nutella, powdered sugar, and cocoa powder at medium speed for two minutes. Scrape down the bowl and add the vanilla extract and heavy cream. Mix for another minute until desired consistency is reached.
Once stamped cookies are cooled and ready, spread or pipe frosting on bottom side of cookie and place another cookie on top so designs are on the outside. Push down until frosting meets the edge of the cookies. Dip sides in sprinkles until completely covered for a fun decoration (optional). Makes about 9 cookie sandwiches.

Chocolate Dipped Sugar Cookies:

Melt white chocolate chips and regular chocolate chips using a double boiler or in microwave safe bowls. Place cooled stamped cookies on a grid fitted in a sheet pan. Dip cookies half way in desired chocolate and decorate with festive sprinkles (or drizzle chocolate over cookies on grid and add sprinkles). Let chocolate settle and cool on grid before serving.

    This recipe is delicious, but here’s a tip for using the stamp. Put the stamps in the freezer for about 15 minutes. After rolling all the cookies in sugar, take the stamps out of the freezer. Before stamping each cookie stamp the cookie stamp first in sugar and then on the cookie. The stamp will then easily release from the cookie and your design will have nice sharp detail. Then bake as directed. I had several cookies stick to the stamp before I discovered this technique. Happy baking and eating.

    These cookies turned out amazing! I tested these as I’m hoping to use my NordicWare stamps on some delicious stocking stuffer cookies. This recipe is IT! They are denser than you’d think- one is more than enough to get a good chocolate fix.

    Makes for especially crisp stamp impressions, even intricate ones. My go-to for any chocolate stamp cookies.

    These cookies baked up great! They were a big hit with my family. Chocolaty and melt-in-your mouth delicious. I was really impressed that the imprint didn’t get distorted during baking. The words looked perfect! Recipe was easy to follow. I definitely recommend this recipe.

    I made these with my grandchildren, who did everything except running mixer and portioning the balls. They held the shape well and were delicious, not overly sweet but rich and chocolately.
