Soft Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

Soft Nutella Chocolate Chip CookiesI am a woman of many contradictions. I am a woman after all. ;-) The most relevant this morning being my love/hate relationship with hazelnuts. I hate hazelnuts. I refuse to eat them. Roasted, salted, raw, whatever. Nasty.

But I LOVE hazelnut coffee. Strange? Definitely. And I really, really love Nutella! Double strange.

So you can imagine my excitement when Averie posted this recipe for Soft Nutella White Chocolate Chip Cookies. I was ecstatic!

Partially because I love Nutella and partially because I have a lonely little jar of Nutella that is about to expire. Who lets Nutella expire?! Blasphemy! In my defense…

…I have no defense. :-/

Soft Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

The point is moot because clearly I made these delectable Soft Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies. They really are incredibly delicious! Perfectly soft and chewy with bittersweet chocolate scattered throughout.

If you are looking for soft, chewy chocolate cookies that are in your face chocolaty, these are not the cookies for you. But don’t stress, my Quadruple Chocolate Pudding Cookies will satisfy even the most intense chocolate cookie craving!

These Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies are more subtly chocolaty with a hint of hazelnut. The bittersweet chips give a welcome burst of rich chocolate that perfectly complements the soft Nutella cookie. Mmmm perfection.

Do you know what the secret is to keeping Nutella around long enough for it to expire?

Not opening it. Because once you do, in goes the spoon and out goes the waistline! #truth

Soft Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 20 Cookies

These Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies are subtly chocolaty with a hint of hazelnut. Perfectly soft and chewy with bittersweet chocolate scattered throughout.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • heaping 1/3 cup Nutella, stir before scooping
  • ½ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips (I use Ghirardelli, in case you’re new around here)

Instructions

  1. Whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking soda an salt together in a medium bowl and set aside.
  2. Beat together butter, nutella, sugars, egg, and vanilla on medium-high speed in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until well combined, about 4 minutes. Scrape down the bowl with a spatula once during this time.
  3. Reduce the mixer speed to low and slowly add the flour mixture until well combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl several time.
  4. Stir in the bittersweet chocolate chips until well distributed.
  5. Roll the dough into balls 1 inch in diameter and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet, plate or tray. Cover well with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.
  6. Preheat oven to 350° Place dough 1 inch apart on a parchment line baking sheet. Bake 9-11 minutes or until the edges are set and the tops have just started to brown. Don’t over bake or they will be crispy and the bottoms will burn…I know…I ruined some in the name experimentation.
  7. Let cool 5 minutes on the cookie sheet before removing to a wire rack to cool completely or not…I know I didn’t wait but I have a patience problem.

      Lol! Why I most certainly can…it will probably get to you just in time for breakfast on Friday! :-)

      Thank you! I’m super excited about the new design!

    Oh yeah I can’t have Nutella around either because I always end up eating it all oops sorry not sorry! BUT I think I could totally make an exception and buy a jar of that glorious stuff just to make these cookies. OOHHH they look beyond awesome! Seriously – soft, nutell-y (yup that’s obviously a word) and stuffed with chocolate chips? I’m so into these!

      Thanks Consuelo! The jars and these cookies are DANGEROUS! I have some dough in the freezer and it takes all my willpower not to make 3 every night!

    • AmericanCooking22 says

      So you don’t like hazelnuts either! It feels so good not to be alone in Contradiction Land! Thanks for the pin!

  2. says

    Holy cow! These cookies look absolutely amazing. :-) I think I want to shove one into my face as fast as possible. Is that allowed? And we need to have a chat about hazelnuts!

    • AmericanCooking22 says

      I heard about those but I haven’t seen them yet! Those would certainly help with the temptation of the whole jar!!

  3. says

    They look delicious. Can you believe I’ve never had Nutella from the jar? I’ve made it before at my old job for one of the parties we had, but I never actually tasted the jar version. I can only imagine that what I made has some similarities to the jar version. My boss (who has tried the jar version)liked our house made version better lol. I love hazelnut coffee too. Love the aroma. And I am not too crazy about hazelnuts either.

      That is shocking! I’ll bet homemade is better just like homemade everything! What is it about the actual nut that is such a turnoff?! So odd!

    You won’t believe this, but just 1.5 weeks ago, I discovered the wonderfulness of Nutella. I have always avoided it because of the hazelnuts (I’m not a nut fan of any type). Anyway, while in Lisbon, I tried a fartura/churro filled with Nutella thinking it was just melted chocolate! OMG! I now understand why people are crazy about Nutella! Now I get excited about any recipe with this luscious spread, which is so funny. The first time I ever buy Nutella, I am going to make these cookies!! Thanks for sharing this recipe and these tempting photos!

      I completely believe it! I held out until several years ago because I just couldn’t believe that I would actually like a spread with hazelnuts in it! I tried my friend’s crepe with nutella and had the same experience you did!

    • AmericanCooking22 says

      It’s soooo dangerous! I hear they are selling them in individual packets now, which would be way safer!

    • AmericanCooking22 says

      I have zero control around Nutella! I just polished off the last of it with a spoon this evening! Bad.

    • AmericanCooking22 says

      I’ll have to keep trying hazelnuts just to make sure! These cookies are so right up your alley!
