This next statement may sound crazy… I had never had Nutella until about a month ago when I made these cookies. I know, craziness! However, these quickly became a favorite and made me fall in love with Nutella. I still have yet to eat it by the spoonful as I have been warned may happen 😉 I have eaten way too many of these delicious cookies to count! Give them a try!
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup Nutella
1 tsp. Fragelico (omit if you don’t have on hand)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter until smooth, add in sugars. Beat on high speed 2-3 minutes until light & fluffy. Scrape down sides half way through.
With mixer on low, add the egg, and vanilla. (and Frangelico if using) Add Nutella and mix until well incorporated.
In small bowl mix flour, baking soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet and mix until well incorporated. Mix on medium until the dough is smooth. Add chocolate chips.
Using a small cookie scoop, place on parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake 6-7 minutes. Cookies may look underdone but you want to take them out at this point, let them cool on cookie sheet 2 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
Resist the urge to eat all of the cookies that you just baked before they cool! 😉 Enjoy!
