Celebrating World Nutella Day

Let's celebrate World Nutella Day with these decadent filled cookies.

Nutella cream cheese stuffed cookies

When it comes to food holidays, I'm not sure there could be one more enjoyable than World Nutella Day. Yes, seriously, there is such a thing. I'm not about to argue with anyone trying to force me to eat Nutella, so what better way than combined with cream cheese and stuffed between two chocolate chip cookies? These are pure decadence overload. One cookie will be more than enough. Although, can there even be such a thing as "enough" when it comes to Nutella?
