Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

The only way you can make the classic chocolate chip cookie even better is to mix in a hefty dose of one of my favorites…Nutella! I am a fan of anything that has Nutella in it, so when I saw these delicious cookies over on Kim’s blog, Liv Life, I immediately pinned them to make. When we have a jar of Nutella in our pantry, I have no self-control. A spoonful here and a spoonful there and suddenly I am standing in front of the pantry with Nutella all over my face! It’s not pretty! 😀 These cookies lived up to the high expectations that I had. My only regret is that I didn’t make them sooner! Moist and chewy with crisp edges and tons of chocolate chips. Serve warm straight from the oven with a cold glass of milk. If you are feeling crazy, why not throw in a handful of chopped hazelnuts? Now we’re talking, yum!

    Now that would be something to see: you in your pantry with a Nutella-smudged face! Just be sure you’re alone if you must “snack”. This kinda thing will go viral on YouTube every time!

    Another use for Nutella, Christina, means another great recipe. Thanks.

    look too good to be true..nutella is something i have tried very hard not to taste! ‘coz I am sure I will be addicted once i do.

  6. Wow Christina, these cookies look amazing. My kids are nutella fans so they are going to LOVE them. Thanks!

  7. I bet the texture would be so good, almost peanut buttery. Did you already say that? I was distracted by my drooling.

  8. Love, love love these! Just bought 2 huge jars of Nutella from Costco and I was wondering how I was going to use it up! 🙂

  9. Oh, I’m feeling crazy, all right! What an easy switch-up for a cookie! I’m a fan of nutella smeared on my nose and chin as well.. how else can you like a Nutella coated spoon?! xo Smidge

    Cookies just came out of the oven! They look delicious! Tasting now…Great texture, crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside and super rich chocolate flavor. LOVE!!!

    This recipe is AAAAA-MAZING!! Super easy!
    I tweaked it just a bit by adding an almond chocolate spread (was out of Nutella :() and used plain M&M’s instead of choco chips (you guessed it..because I was out of chips). They are delicious!!

    This will be my ‘go to’ recipe from now on 🙂

      I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed the cookies! Thanks so much for letting me know how they turned out! Maybe you could send some of that cold weather over here…it has been in the upper 90’s and 100’s for weeks now! 🙂

    These are hands down the best thing I’ve ever baked. Makes regular chocolate chip cookies look boring and bland.
