Nutella is one of my favourite baking ingredients. If you love Nutella, then these Nutella-chocolate-chip cookies are a must-try. They are crisp on the outside, with a soft, gooey centre. They are quick and easy to make, and the best part is they stay as tasty the next day!
This recipe was recommended to me by a friend, and will make around 30 medium-sized cookies.
Overall preparation time: 20 mins
475g plain flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
120g butter (melted)
140g caster sugar
120g brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
200g chocolate chips (I would recommend dark chocolate chips, as these complement the Nutella well)
1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
2. Mix the flour, baking soda and salt in a medium sized bowl using a wooden spoon.
3. In another bowl cream the butter, sugar and the brown sugar using an electric mixer. Add the eggs and the vanilla and mix on medium speed until combined.
4. Add in the flour mixture on low speed until combined. Then add in 30g of Nutella and gently fold it into the mixture. You don’t want to mix the Nutella into the batter too much, in order to get ‘nutella swirls’ in the cookies.
5. Mix in the chocolate chips using a wooden spoon.
6. Scoop a small ball of dough into the palm of your hand and flatten. Place a small dot of nutella in the centre and fold the edges of the dough around it, and flatten slightly. Place the dough ball onto your baking tray.
7. Bake for about 8-10 minutes. The cookies may feel soft when you remove them from the oven, but they will become crispier when cooled.
8. Remove cookies from try and let them cool on wire racks.
