This weekend I went to Costco and stocked up on bacon and Nutella again. My supply was getting dangerously low and it was making me anxious.
As soon as I got home, I opened a new jar Nutella to make some recipes. I had bookmarked this chewy Nutella cookie recipe weeks ago, and I finally got a chance to make it. I love chewy cookies, and these are very chewy cookies. Once they finish baking, they flatten quite a bit while cooling. The end result is a fudgy, chewy, cookie. Delicious.
The original recipe calls for mini chocolate chips, but I thought they would get lost in the cookie so I used regular chocolate chips instead and I also upped the quantity. I will say the Nutella flavor is a bit light. I don’t know why as there’s a whole heaping half cup of Nutella in the recipe. But they are still really tasty and I would definitely make it again.
