Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

October 7, 2011
Give chocolate chip cookies a little shake-up with Nutella hazelnut spread in these delicious Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies.

It's Crazy Cooking Challenge time! Crazy Cooking Challenge is a group of food bloggers who get together once a month to bring you one featured food item. We all make this one item, but, of course, we each make it in our own special way. Because that's what we do best!

This month's feature is ... drum roll pleasssssssse ... CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES! Tina of Mom's Crazy Cooking (our Crazy Cooking Challenge hostess-with-the-mostest) challenged us all to get creative with this feature food. As long as our cookie had chocolate chips in it, then anything else, as far as ingredients go, was fair game!

Now, the rules of The Challenge are that we can't just make our own personal recipe favorite, or a recipe that we have posted on our blog before. We are to make a new-to-us recipe, or to use a new-to-us method, found somewhere out in blog-land. With Tina's creativity challenge in tow, a blog-land-searchin' I went. And, wow, was it ever hard to decide which of the many, many, many fantastic cookie creations to try!

I finally decided on these Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies from The Culinary Chronicles. I love, love, love me some Nutella (as evidenced my recent Nutella French Toast). And these Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies did not disappoint. They are yummy, just like I knew they would be! When I brought these to school to share with my fellow teachers (they are the recipients of quite a few of my baking products!), one of my friends said, "Oh, I love Nutella! I could bathe in it!"

While I don't recommend bathing in Nutella, I do highly recommend making these Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies! You'll be glad you did.

3.  Refrigerate dough for approximately one hour.

  1. I can honestly say that I've never tried Nutella..but this might be the time to do so!

    I host a link up on Mondays, entitled "Must Try Mondays" if you'd like to link your must try recipes.

  2. These are what mine SHOULD have turned out like!! I made my nutella chocolate chip cookies last night but burnt them. Grr!!! I was really looking forward to them. Yours turned out great though. Did you flatten the dough once you placed it on the baking sheet, or just leave it as a glob?

  3. Delicious! Who knew there are so many way to make choc chip cookies :) I would love you to check mine out, they are #5. Thanks!
