Last month I took my favorite soft cookie recipe and added some chocolate and Nutella to it. They were soft, chocolatey, but the Nutella flavor got a little lost.

So I decided to try again and only put Nutella. Unfortunately, the Nutella flavor still ended up tasting really light. It’s frustrating baking with Nutella sometimes. The flavor often gets lost, especially in cookies.

The cookies were still good and very soft. However, they tasted almost like regular chocolate chip cookies with a hint of chocolate.

I’ll have to play around a little more to try to create a soft Nutella cookie recipe that tastes more like Nutella. You can view the Chocolate Nutella cookie recipe here.

    I made these cookies this weekend and loved how soft they were. I made them into thumbprint cookies to get the Nutella flavor prevalent:

    I made these this afternoon and they turned out fabulous! Of course, anything made with Nutella has to be delicious!
