Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

Why have regular chocolate chip cookies when you can have NUTELLA choc chip cookies. I mean seriously, can there be anything better than Nutella? It’s happy food. Original recipe found here. My version below:

You’ll need:

  • 115g unsalted butter (at room temperature)
  • 200g brown sugar
  • 1 large egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons Nutella
  • 295g plain flour
  • 1 and 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 225g semi-sweet chocolate chips

Method:

Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees. Line a baking tray with baking paper.

Mix flour, baking soda, cornstarch, salt and choc chips together and set aside (dry ingredients).

In a stand mixer, on medium speed beat butter until smooth. Add brown sugar and beat until fluffy. Add eggs, Nutella and vanilla, beat until combined.

Lower speed, add dry ingredients a spoonful at a time. Once well combined, use a tablespoon or mini ice cream scoop to form cookie balls.

Arrange cookies on a tray with plenty of space in between. Bake for 10 minutes in the oven. Remove from tray and allow to cool (or maybe not) before indulging. Enjoy!

*Tip: I usually only bake 8-10 cookies at the time and store the rest of the unbaked cookies in the freezer. If baking from frozen, bake for an extra minute.
