There’s nothing better than a classic chocolate chip cookie, that is, until you make it into a cookie cup with Nutella® hazelnut spread! This chocolate chip cookie twist will have your friends and family raving over the fun presentation and delicious flavor combination of chocolate chip cookies and Nutella®.
This Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe combines the delicious Italian hazelnut spread with the best chocolate chip cookie recipe ever!
When planning the Italian menu for my Little Italy Housewarming Party I knew I wanted some sort of cookie in the mix.
Cookies are an easy dessert for a cocktail party as you can make the dough ahead of time, throw it in the fridge and then bake the cookies just before guests arrive for a fresh, warm dessert that people can grab and go!
Cupcakes you have to frost, pies you have to slice, ice cream melts, but cookies are easy and something that everyone loves!
This is my go-to recipe for chocolate chip cookies. Many people claim to have “the perfect” chocolate chip cookie recipe, but I think it’s all a matter of taste.
I like mine soft and chewy with lots of chocolate chips. After years of hard, scientific research involving very long days and tough tasting sessions, I have come up with my “perfect” chocolate chip cookie!
Since the menu was Italian I decided to add in everyone’s favorite Italian Hazelnut spread, Nutella, to make my very own Italian Chocolate Chip Cookies! The result…
…well, lets just say after posting pictures of these cookies on Instagram and Twitter, I’ve been making deals and getting bribes to trade these cookies for just about anything!
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup butter (melted)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
1 egg yolk
12 oz chocolate chips
1/4 cup nutella
Combine the flour, salt and baking powder in a mixing bowl.
Combine the melted butter and sugars. Blend well then beat in the eggs and vanilla, then add the flour mixture.
Hand mix in the chocolate chips.
Swirl in the Nutella.
Drop the cookie dough by large tablespoons onto a baking stone.
Bake at 325°F for 15-20 minutes. Low and slow is the key to an evenly chewy and delicious cookie!
The swirled in Nutella gives the cookies that awesome marble look!
I wasn’t on the Nutella bandwagon before these cookies, but now I’m not only on the wagon, I’m manning the wheel and driving it in circles of Nutella amazingness!
Nothing brings more happiness to my face than a large stack of warm, melty, chocolate chip cookies!
