Nutella Chip Cookies

I'm hoping I had you at "Nutella", but just in case you need convincing, these were delicious, thin and crispy, not too sweet, and perfect with a cup of coffee (or probably with a bowl of ice cream, although I haven't tried that yet) cookies. On board yet?

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.

The contents of this plate did not last long. And there were really NOT that many people helping.
