Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

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!
