Chewy Nutella Cookies

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.

Chewy Nutella Cookies


½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup packed light brown sugar
½ cup Nutella
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 ½ cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt
1 cup chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Cream butter with both sugars until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg, vanilla, and Nutella.
3. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, and salt. Then add into the wet mixture until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
4. Drop the dough by large tablespoons onto baking sheet and bake for 6-8 minutes.

  3. One can never have too much bacon or nutella! 🙂 These look yummy… i may have to go to Costco and get the two-pack this week!

  4. hi kirbie! i’m new to your blog and i love everything you have on it including the nutella recipes! just 2 questions though, i’m still an amateur baker and was wondering what you meant by folding in the chocolate chip cookies, and is there a difference between the ingredient vanilla and vanilla extract?

    • Hi Andrew! Folding means to use a spoon rather than the mixer so it doesnt crush the chips. The motion is sort of like, scooping some dough up, folding it on top, in a continued motion until chips are mixed in the dough somewhat evenly. Vanilla is usually an artificial vanilla flavoring, whereas vanilla extract is extracted from vanilla beans. Hope this helps!

  5. I just made these today and I am officially in love with this recipe! The only thing on my end is that I had to leave them in there for more than 8 minutes….but none the less they came out amazingly BOMBASTIC!

  6. Hmmmm myniece just cooked fro ur its really really nice cookies! Ive nv eatchew cookies before!

  7. I just made these this morning. The recipe yielded almost 3 dozen using a TBSP-sized cookie scoop. They just cooled so of course I had to taste one…delicious! Crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside, although perhaps I should have baked them for 8 minutes instead of 7. Thanks for the recipe!

  8. Tried this just now. Cookies turned out beautiful and yummy! Thank you for sharing.
