I got this recipe from Kirbie’s Cravings and now it’s become my annual contribution to any holiday gathering. They’re the perfect chocolate chip cookies because they are everything you expect from a standard chocolate chip cookie BUT with a surprise of nutella goodness inside.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup nutella
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, continue to beat until well combined. I don’t have an electric mixer, so I beat these ingredients with a whisk. Bonus arm work out!
- Place flour and baking soda into a bowl; mix to combine then add slowly to wet ingredients along with the chocolate chips. The lovely @soapopolous is helping me here in my culinary adventures.
- Scoop a large spoonful of dough and flatten it into the palm of your hand. Add in some nutella into the middle, about 1-2 tsp. Then fold cookie dough back up so that it seals and covers the nutella entirely. If you find nutella seeping through some holes, just grab a small bit of dough from the bowl and patch it up for an easy fix.
- Line a cookie sheet with wax or parchment paper. Bake for about 10-14 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Remove and let cool for a few minutes before serving.
- Enjoy by the handful :)
