Foodie Day: Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

Nope. It's not Nutella Day. But that doesn't stop from baking these cookies. And seriously, who doesn't love this ever famous hazelnut spread, Nutella?!

Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies; pardon for the low quality picture

These cookies were actually baked three weeks ago, 7th October to be exact. Initially, I did not intend to post it here. Reason is I burnt badly the last batch of it as I failed to check the oven's temperature. What a shame, seriously. But my conscience won't let me be in peace; it feels like I have neglected these cookies and I feel bad, so here am I still doing it after all!

Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies
Recipe by: Sarah
Source: Sugar Cooking
Originally adapted from: alphineberry

  • 1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 7 tbsp unsalted butter, at room temp.
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup Nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (it's just what I had in my pantry. feel free to just add more of the regular chocolate chips instead)

  1. Mix together flour, cocoa, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside dry ingredients.
  2. Cream together butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in Nutella and vanilla extract. Mix in egg.
  3. Add flour mixture and mix until just incorporated. Add chocolate chips.
  4. Chill for 1 hour. (This step can be skipped if you want, but I always chill my cookie dough because I think it makes a huge difference).
  5. Drop tablespoons of dough 2 inches apart onto parchment lined baking sheets. Bake at 350 for about 11 minutes until the edges look set. Cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes then carefully remove to cooling racks.
As you can see, compared to her cookies, mine are a bit darker in colour because I added half tbsp of unsweetened cocoa.

Despite the burnt cookies and all, they were still warmly loved. And of course, Nutella did all the wonders. I am really excited for the next recipe I can try, so let's all wait and stay tune for the next World Nutella Day!
