Nutella Chip Cookies

Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

Apparently today is World Nutella Day.

Forget Valentine’s and President’s Day, we need more holidays like this.

Because Nutella really is something to celebrate.

As good as it is right out of the jar, these cookies really are something special. Soft and chewy like your favorite chocolate chip cookie, but with an extra jolt of nutella. Don’t be surprised if they disappear rather quickly, and neither you or your husband will admit to eating more than your share (even though you both know that you both ate a few more than you’re willing to admit). They’re just that kind of cookie.

The big question is, what are YOU doing to celebrate World Nutella Day?

Nutella Chip Cookies

Yield: 4 dozen cookies

Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients:

½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup Nutella or other hazelnut chocolate spread
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cream butter with an electric mixer about 1 minute until smooth. Add in both sugars. Beat on high speed about 3 minutes until light and fluffy, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.

With the mixer on low, add the egg and vanilla. Then add Nutella and mix until well combined.

In a small bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, and mix on low speed until incorporated. Increase the speed to medium and mix just until the dough is smooth. Fold in chocolate chips.

Using a small ice cream scoop (or a teaspoon), form the dough into balls and place on parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake 6-7 minutes or until set. Let cookies cool about 5 minutes and transfer to a rack to cool completely.

    I’m of the personal opinion that we should have a monthly nutella day. In fact, i’m pretty sure we’d be much closer to gaining world peace if we did. these cookies sound delicious! Nutella AND chocolate…can’t get better than that.

    I celebrated by eating Nutella straight from the jar! (Which… I do on non-Nutella holidays as well. Hmmm….)

    Apparently I’m the only person in the universe that’s never had Nutella. I’m going to have to try these. Anything with chocolate chips has to be good.

    Mmm mmm… Nutella! I think this just may be one of my favorite food holidays because really there is no better sweet treat than Nutella, whether eaten straight out of the jar or baked into a cookie. I’ll have to try these cookies soon – maybe I’ll just prolong my celebration for the rest of the week! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    I can think of only one way to improve on this gorgeous recipe – to sandwich two together with more nutella! Here’s to the next world nutella day and using it to it’s full glory!

    I don’t even want to imagine how good these are because I’m 100 percent sure that the entire batch would be gone in one day. Nutella makes everything better.

    Lindsay – Chris and I just made these and are so excited. They turned out great! Both of our kids are “star of the week” at school this week and they are supposed to bring a special snack for the class. They love Nutella – so when we saw this post, we knew it would be perfect. We got 47 cookies — 21 for Avery’s class, 23 for Cade’s class, 3 for Daddy and no tempation left for Mom! :) Thanks for sharing!

    I made this recipe exactly as written today and OMG SO GOOD. I miss the European chocolate with hazelnut chunks I used to eat when I lived abroad, and this was basically the same thing in cookie form.

    I would recommend going “freestyle” with the chocolate chips:) 1/3 cup wasn’t quite enough for my taste…. Overall great recipe. Makes about fifty.

    Made these tonight- wonderful! And easy. I used the Trader Joe version of Nutella that is made with almonds as my daughter prefers that. I had to raise the oven temp to 375 otherwise they took almost 15 minutes to cook. First batch disappeared before I put the next tray in the oven! Will double the recipe next time….
