A Recipe for Nutella Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

These make great “Thank You” gifts; all you have to do is place four or five in a small bag and tie it with a bow. They are also great to have around the house so that whenever you get the urge to have something sweet you can grab a cookie and a glass of milk to go along with it. I wish you the best of luck with this recipe and all others.

Ingredients

    2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, cubed
    1¼ cup sugar
    2 large eggs
    ½ cup dark cocoa powder
    ¼ cup nutella
    2¼ cups all-purpose flour
    ¼ tsp. salt
    1 tsp. baking powder
    2½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
    ½ cup pecans or any other nut you want (optional)

 

Steps

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl combine butter and sugar, mix until fluffy.
  3. Add in eggs, one at a time, mixing well between each egg.
  4. Mix in cocoa-powder, well.
  5. Mix in Nutella (at this point the dough will become really thick you might want to change form mixing it with a whisk to mixing it with a spatula).
  6. In another bowl combine flour, salt and baking powder, add this mixture (a third at a time, mixing well with each addition) to the chocolate mixture.
  7. Fold in chocolate chips and nuts.
  8. Roll a spoon full of the dough in your hand and flatten, to form a disk shape. Place each disk about 2 – 3 inches away from each other.
  9. Bake for 10 – 15 minutes, and then let cool for 5 minutes
