Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have been better about digging through old pins on Pinterest and finally making them.  This is one such mission.  The idea of Nutella chocolate chip cookies sounded so good, and while I never really had a specific idea of how they would taste, I have to say I'm happy with how they turned out.  They still taste like chocolate chip cookies, but with this slightly different flavor that makes them special.  I would love to make these during the holidays as a bit of a surprise treat.  They're also a tad addictive.  I'm pretty sure I've already eaten 4 "test" cookies while they were still cooling!

  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl with a hand mixer, beat butter, Nutella, sugar, and brown sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy (3-4 minutes).  Trust me, it will get light and fluffy!
  4. Add egg, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.  Add vanilla extract and beat until combined.
  5. Reduce speed to low and add flour mixture slowly until combined.
  6. Add chocolate chips and mix until fully incorporated.
  7. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Let cool 2 minutes before transferring to wire racks.
  9. Store in an airtight container with a slice of bread to keep the cookies soft.  The cookies absorb the moisture from the bread!  Swap out bread with another slice when it turns dry and hard.
