I'm officially obsessed with my friend Shelly's new cookbook, The Cookies and Cups Cookbook. It hit stores last month and it's everything I imagined it would be, plus more.
Since the cookbook arrived on our doorstep, we've whipped up quite a few of the recipes, including Shelly's s'mores cake, flourless chocolate cookies, garlic bread pasta, and these super delicious marbled chocolate hazelnut cookies. And let me tell you, every single recipe has been perfection.
Seriously, you have to make the garlic bread pasta! It's my husband's new favorite dish and I'm pretty sure he'd happily eat it for dinner four times a week.
The majority of the Cookies and Cups Cookbook is filled with dessert recipes, but also has several chapters dedicated to savory dishes like Frito pie sloppy joes and my new favorite salad, Shelly's Asian lettuce wrap chicken chopped salad. It's incredible.
Shelly reminds you to always eat dessert first by placing the dessert recipes at the front of the book, and the savory ones at the back. It’s a clever reminder, and you know this dessert-obsessed girl loves that the majority of the book is dedicated to my favorite mealtime.
If you haven't picked up this cookbook yet, ya need to get on that because it's all kinds of amazing.
If you follow My Baking Addiction, you probably know that my love for Nutella runs pretty deep. And if you happen to be in my kitchen around 3 o'clock, you might catch me indulging in my favorite afternoon snack. A bit of Nutella - eaten directly off a spoon.
These marbled chocolate hazelnut cookies are everything I wanted them to be. They're sweet, with crispy edges and chewy centers, and the ribbons of swirled Nutella make them so pretty. A bit of extra chocolate pressed into the tops of the cookies makes them even more amazing.
These cookies are pretty substantial in size - a whopping 3 ounces each, and in my opinion that makes them perfect for sharing at your office potluck or Sunday barbecue. Just be sure to double the batch because they'll be gone in no time.
