Chocolate Nutella Cookies Recipe

I found this recipe awhile back and tried it with my eight year old for a homework project where he had to find and make a new recipie. They were good. If you've never tried Nutella before, this is a great place to start.


  • 1/2 sticks of unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 3/4 cup of brown sugar

  • 3/4 cup of white sugar

  • 1 cup of Nutella

  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 cups, plus 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 cup of chocolate chips

  • 1/2 cup of chopped hazelnuts

Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter until light and fluffy. Add the sugars and Nutella then mix well, scrape down the sides of the bowl to ensure even mixing. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating for 30 seconds between each. Add the vanilla and mix for 10 seconds. Sift together the flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda Add to the butter mixture, fold in the chocolate chips and hazelnuts and refrigerate the dough for ten minutes. Spoon tablespoon-sized drops of dough onto cookie sheets. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool on the sheets for a minute or two before transferring to a rack to finish cooling.

Makes 6 dozen.
