Chocolate Nutella Cookies
Recipe type: snack, cookie
Total time: 
Delicious chocolate nutella cookies!
  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ⅔ cup cocoa
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, or margarine at room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon hazelnut extract ( I didn't have this, so I added an additional ½ tsp vanilla, and they were still delicious!)
  • ⅓ cup Nutella
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  1. Whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, and cocoa, set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix butter and sugars, beating until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. Add the vanilla and hazelnut extract and beat until extracts disappear. Add the Nutella and mix until batter is smooth.
  3. Into the creamed mixture, add the flour mixture in 2 batches, alternately with the milk in one batch, mixing well. Fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Chill dough for at least 15 minutes before baking. You can make the dough a few days in advance, just wrap it in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator.
  5. When you are ready to bake the cookies, preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or grease lightly. Spoon dough onto cookie sheet, leaving about 2 inches between, to allow for swelling.
  6. Bake cookies for 10-11 minutes or until soft, but starting to set. Remove cookies from the oven and let cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool completely.
