Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

10 Oct 2014

So recently I received a lot of Nutella.  Like, a lot.  Even worse, add it to the whole lot of Nutella I already have at home, and I have even more Nutella.  Of course, this is by no means a tragic thing.  The question is, what do I do with it?

I recently also started thinking of what sort of foods make good favors or gifts.  So here is potentially a good candidate for what I was thinking about, and also perhaps the start of a whole chain of Nutella recipes.  🙂  They’re surprisingly addictive; I popped one in when Kak’mbang was putting them away into jars, and immediately reached out for another.  Next time I’m going to try adding chopped hazelnuts – they’ll taste even yummier!

Based on the recipe on
