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 Taste.com.au.
Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1/2 cup (125 grams) butter, softened
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup (150 grams) Nutella spread
- 1 3/4 cups plain flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 3/4 cup (100 grams) semi-sweet OR white chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup chopped toasted hazelnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper.
Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the egg and Nutella. Beat until just combined.
Sift flour and baking powder over butter mixture.
Add the chocolate chips and stir until combined using a wooden spoon.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto the prepared trays 3 cm apart, to allow room for spreading.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, swapping trays halfway, or until light golden. Cool on trays.
Transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Serve.
