Lately, I’ve had an obsession with Nutella. Normally, I like it in small quantities and I rarely spread it on bagels or the like because I find it to be too rich. However, baking with it is absolutely amazing, not to mention ridiculously delicious.
I found a recipe for four ingredient Nutella cookies and just had to try them. While I love baking desserts, I am often exhausted after making dinner and the thought of creating more mess in the kitchen is unappetizing. If only I had the weekends to bake…
But, four ingredients, I could handle, especially after a few glasses of wine (baking while tipsy is pretty much a norm for me).
The result: Quick, easy and instant satisfaction.
My electric oven (argh!) bakes super quickly, so even with adjusting the temperature, the edges still got a bit crispier than what I would like. However, these were immediately devoured and since one batch only makes about 12-14 cookies, we won’t be tempted to eat these all week!
Chewy Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies (from Kirbie’s Cravings)
- 1/2 cup + 1 Tbsp. flour
- 1 egg
- 1 cup Nutella
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Sea salt for sprinkling
Beat flour, egg and Nutella together until combined. Add chocolate chips. Roll into balls and press lightly with a spoon once on baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. I took these out when the middle was still slightly moist and they turned out great. I also sprinkled them with a bit of sea salt once they cooled. The salty/sweet combination can’t be beat!
