Not only can you make chocolate hazelnut spread bread, but you can make chocolate hazelnut spread cookies too!

Ingredients

For 3 dozen cookies:

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 1/4 cup Nutella
  • 1 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons soy milk
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips (optional)

Directions

Cream together butter, hazelnut spread and sugars; beat in eggs. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir the butter/sugar mix into the dry ingredients until creamy to make the cookie dough. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and put the dough in refrigerator for at least 1 hour. After an hour, unwrap. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and set aside a parchment paper lined baking sheet Drop a generous tablespoon of the cookie dough batter and put on baking sheets. Bake for about ten minutes. Repeat until all of the cookie dough has been used.

I highly recommend pairing these cookies with a nice big glass of milk.

Nutella Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Nutella Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.

Nutella Wine Pairing

Sweet chenin blanc, muscat, or amontillado sherry with nut-based desserts; sauternes or sweet German wines with pound cake, cheesecake, and other mildly sweet desserts; sweet chenin blanc or muscat or Alsatian vendange tardive (late harvest) wines with sweeter desserts; sweet chenin blanc or muscat or Alsatian vendange tardive (late harvest) wines, port, madeira, late-harvest zinfandel, or cabernet sauvignon or cabernet franc with chocolate desserts.
