Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

Being that I gave up peanut butter for lent, Nutella is a perfect substitute for indulgence. Nutella chocolate chip cookies were baked last night after dinner and you better believe that Joe came home and had a sprinkle massacre with them (and cool whip). I used this recipe that Courtney fixed a little bit, and they were perfect!

Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 1-1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) softened butter
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup Nutella
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Mix together flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt, and set aside.
  2. Cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Mix in Nutella and vanilla extract. Add in egg and mix until combined.
  3. Add flour mixture and mix until just incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips.
  4. *Optional step: Chill dough for 1/2-1 hour. (It can make a big difference in the cookies)
  5. Drop tablespoons of dough 2 inches apart onto parchment lined baking sheets. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes until the edges look set. Cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes then carefully remove to cooling racks
The cinnamon is key! Nutella cookies are AMAZING!

Moist & Chewy!
After dessert was done, I did some online shopping. Well, it all involved food in a sense. I ordered protein shakes from Netrition and a toaster oven, crock pot, mixer, food processor, and measuring cups from the Bloomingdale’s Home Sale. I couldn’t resist!
Today…I will conquer Spring clothes clean out! I will probably conquer some pizza, too…as it is Sunday!
