Nutella® Holiday Cookies

Recipe by  

"This is one of my favorite Christmas cookies. I just can't resist cookies during the holidays! I changed the recipe a little myself, but most things I tried to keep the same, despite my constant urge to make things healthier. I kept this one full-fat."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Mix brown sugar, chocolate-hazelnut spread, chocolate chips, egg, and baking soda together in a large bowl. Drop rounded teaspoons of mixture, at least 1 1/2-inches apart, onto the prepared baking sheets.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are puffed and cracked, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool cookies on baking sheet until firm, about 5 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can use plain peanut butter as well. I like to make them with semi-sweet chocolate chips when I'm out of Nutella®.
  • Stevia brown sugar can be substituted for the brown sugar. Walnuts can be substituted for the chocolate chips.

Tried these tonight and they were super easy & yummy! Great for gluten-free diets since there is no flour. I added a pinch of salt and splash of vanilla to pull all the flavors together. I used half nutella and half peanut butter. Be sure to leave enough room between the cookies since they expand quite a bit. Will definitely make these again!

I don't know what went wrong, but I followed the recipe exactly. The dropped cookies melted into one giant crunchy sheet of gross. My teenager wouldn't even eat it. I tried to be creative and present it as chocolate bark, but no one fell for it.

It was terrible! I don't know what went wrong but they turned out to be these flat crispy chocolate rounds. 8-10 minutes is WAY too long on 350.

We love these cookies! I cook them for 9 minutes exactly and they turn out perfect every time.

Total disaster. Didn't puff up at all, melted into large pieces of flat nothing.

I followed the recipe and they came out really airy and didn't taste like nuttella at all
