Anyways, as much as I love Nutella, I honestly don't like buying it because I have a really hard time with self-control. (The Nutella-pretzel combo kills me!) Oops.
But it is really fun to bake with!
So here I was. Nutella + me. I had to bake something :)
These cookies are crunchy and chewy, and a great compliment to a glass of milk :). They're a hit, and a must-try recipe!
Nutella Chocolate Chunk Cookies
2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
1 stick unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
⅓ cup Nutella + ¼ extra
1 cup (or more if you like lots of chocolate) chocolate chunks (I used Trader Joe's chocolate chunks, but you can also use regular chocolate chips!) + more for garnish
Preheat oven to 375F.
Line baking sheet with parchment paper or non-stick baking mat.
Cream together butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar in a large bowl/mixer.
Add vanilla and eggs. Mix until combined.
Add ⅓ cup of Nutella.
Gradually add flour, baking soda, and salt until just combined.
Fold in 1 cup of chocolate chunks/chips.
Add remaining ¼ cup Nutella and mix so it just barely incorporates into the dough (going for a marbled effect here)
Scoop cookies onto baking sheet using a cookie scoop (I like to make smaller cookies and use a tsp to scoop cookies)
Press dough balls down slightly, and add ~ 3 chocolate chunks on top.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cookies should have crackled tops and should look underdone- do not over bake.
Allow to cool and enjoy!!
