What you'll need:
- 150g unsalted butter
- 100g caster sugar
- 100g light brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 150g nutella
- 340g self raising flour (I used Dove's Farm GF blend)
- 2.5 tsps baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 75g chocolate powder
- finely chopped hazelnuts
- 100g finely chopped milk chocolate
What to do:Preheat your oven to 180C/360F.
Then combine the sugars, eggs, butter, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. I used an electric mixer on a low/medium speed for about a minute, or until everything is fully blended. Set this mixture aside for a moment while you combine the remaining dry ingredients - the flour, baking soda, chocolate powder, and salt. Mix thoroughly then blend, little by little, into the wet mixture using the handheld electric mixer.
Once you have a cookie dough with an even consistency, blend in the nutella, hazelnuts, and chopped milk chocolate. Make sure to blend thoroughly, or you risk having a few disappointingly chocolate chip-less cookies!
Roll the dough into balls that fit neatly into the middle of your palm and flatten a bit before placing on the cookie sheet. A ready to be popped into the oven sheet should look like this:
Bake in the pre-heated oven for 8-10 minutes. Fresh from the oven, your cookie sheet should look like this:
Let cool just a tiny bit before eating - this step will be difficult, but trust me on this one. Try to remember that a warm cookie is so much better than a scalding hot cookie.
Enjoy the final results! Sharing is recommended, but mainly because I have no self control if left alone with these. Seriously. NO self control.
