I’m a huge Nutella fan, but only when it’s combined with other ingredients or food. For some (strange) reason, I don’t like it spread by itself on toast and you will never catch me dipping my spoon into a jar of it.
With that being said, I love baking with it, especially when combining it with chocolate. Because, let’s get real, nothing trumps chocolate…NOTHING!
Felix and I are heading to some friends tonight for some dinner and GoT (John Snowwwwww!!!) so I offered to bring dessert. I mean, it’s Sunday, which is my day of rest/day when my diet consists mainly of chocolate and coffee.
I’ve been in a double chocolate cookie mood for awhile, so I thought, Why not add some nutella?
I first thought about making stuffed Nutella cookies, because these were really amazing; however, they were also messy. So I decided not only to incorporate the Nutella inside of the recipe, but also put some on top of the cookie, like frosting. Sweet genius, I am (although I would never be on that show…isn’t the host the most annoying man ever?!)
Double Chocolate Chip Nutella Cookies (Adapted from: Jessie Next Door)
- 1/2 c. butter (I used unsalted)
- 3/4 c. sugar
- 3/4 c. light brown sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla
Combine ingredients until fluffy. Then add the following:
- 1/4 c. Nutella
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp. milk (I used whole)
Combine the following dry ingredients together, then gradually add to the wet mixture:
- 2 1/4 c. flour
- 1/3 c. cocoa
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- pinch of salt
- Chocolate chips (I didn’t measure this, just added enough to my liking. Probably 1 1/2 cups.)
Bake at 350 for about 10-15 minutes, depending on your oven. Once the cookies have cooled “frost” them with Nutella. Enjoy 🙂
