If you like nutella and you like chocolate chip cookies, you should definitely make these. They are sweet, chewy, fudgy, absolutely delicious.
My favorite part of all is that they stay fudgy and chewy, even the next day. For the past few months I’ve been trying out various popular chocolate chip cookie recipes. Some have required quite a few extra steps such as refrigerating, using bread flour, etc. Many have promised to be chewy, but end up being cakey the day after they are baked.
These tasted just as good the next day. And the recipe was easy and simple. I found the recipe from JustJenn.
I only wish I had attempted this recipe sooner. This is definitely going on my favorites list.
It’s interesting that these look like regular chocolate chip cookies. When I mixed the nutella in the dough, it turned the dough a dark brown. I thought the cookies would come out darker than regular chocolate chip cookies, but they are still pretty light. When you bite into the cookies, you can see the layer of nutella in the middle.
I made my cookies fairly big because I like them that way. I followed the recipe, but with a couple of changes to suit my tastes. For JustJenn’s original recipe, go here.
This is the recipe I used:
Nutella chocolate chip cookies (adapted from JustJenn)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter (melted)
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup Nutella
1 cup chocolate chips
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat mats.
2. Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt in a medium sized bowl.
3. In a separate bowl cream the butter, sugar and the brown sugar using an electric mixer. Add the eggs and the vanilla and mix on medium speed until combined.
4. Add in the flour mixture on low speed until combined. Then add in the nutella and mix until Nutella is incorporated.
5. Using a large spoon, mix in the chocolate chips.
6. Scoop large tablespoons of dough and drop onto baking sheets. I usually shape my dough balls so that they are smooth and flatten them a little, to make the cookies bake prettier.
7. Bake for about 8-10 minutes. Remove cookies from try and let them cool on wire racks.
