Love Nutella? Love Chocolate Chip Cookies? How about we marry them together into this Ultimate Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe? Crunchy on the outside, soft and fudgy on the inside.. Chocolaty, nutty.. Pure bliss.
Just when you think that Nutella can’t get more decadent I make this.. Try it and see how delicious this cookie marriage is.. It took me a while to come up with the perfect baking ratio.. I used more brown sugar than white one since I like the softness and the butterscotch flavor. Also, I added the same amount of chocolate chips to tasted hazelnuts.
It’s fun experimenting with cookies and different flavors. When baking with Nutella, it’s important to give it some back up flavoring because as soon as it hits the heat it loses flavor. Have you every tried a Nutella Cupcake that doesn’t really taste like Nutella? That’s because they used vanilla instead of real hazelnut extract in the recipe. This little detail changes the whole flavor of the cookie.
Another thing to keep in mind when making this The Ultimate Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe is to “cream” the butter and sugars together before adding the rest of the ingredients. It will make the cookie soft, chewy and spreadable.
Also, to get a nutty texture is to add some chopped hazelnuts to the mix. If you’re not a fan of them you can substitute for more chocolate chips or chopped walnuts. But I think the combinations of hazelnuts, nutella and real hazelnut extract makes the flavor stand out on these cookies.
Next time I will definitely make a double batch so I can bake and freeze the rest. To thaw simply leave in the fridge overnight and bake. I use an ice cream scoop so they can all be the approximately the same size and bake evenly.
