Chocolate Chip Nutella Cookies


How many of you have a secret pleasure in life?  That jar or carton of something that you keep hidden in the back of the cupboard or the freezer that you hope no one else finds.  Because you don’t want to share!

Well,  I have several of them.  There is the bag of Cadbury chocolate eggs in my desk drawer, the carton of Haagen Daaz ice cream in the back of the freezer and then there is also the jar of Nutella hidden in the pantry.


Today I decided to share my Nutella – in the form of  chocolate chip Nutella cookies.


My favorite cookie is a chocolate chip cookie and not much can improve on that but let me tell you there is something.  And that would be Nutella.  I added in a nice big scoop of Nutella into my current favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and I pretty much found heaven.   I have also begun using cake flour in my cookies and really like the results.


These cookies were so good I had to bag them up and deliver them to some friends to get them out of my house or I could not be held responsible for the number of calories I consumed today.


This cookie is just the way I like, not too thick, not too thin.  Soft in the middle and a little crisp on the edges.  Pretty much perfection.

    Oh My Gosh!!! If I make these for my family I will be the best mom ever!!! I’m torn between making them and getting all the hugs and kisses and not making them and not consuming 10 million calories. Kisses always win out. Thanks for sharing with us at Real Housemoms for Fabulous Fridays!

    Oh, my hubby love Nutella! We found it in Germany ten years ago and are obsessed. He’s never been a PB fan, so this will be great. My youngest son once cleaned out a jar of Nutella with his bare hands. Quit a mess I must add…

    I try to hide things like my favorite chocolate etc… but my daughter and my husband always find them. The nutella jar is my son’s domain. I think he has it booby trapped. We are all afraid to go near it. Love the idea of nutella in chocolate chip cookies. Thanks for bring this by foodie friday.
