Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yes, I know you all deserve a trip re-cap post but I haven't quite finished it but wanted to add a bit of sweetness into your day with this post.
Nutella I have decided is one of nature's most perfect food, even though it isn't found in those jars in nature or picked off a plant, it is still nature's most perfect food. For years, I would spread it on toast only. Then I tried nutella rice krispies, you all saw that post and today you are blessed with nutella chocolate chip cookies. While we were away, a couple stayed at our house to watch our dogs and one of my friends took us to the airport, let us keep our car at her place and then she picked us up and as a small appreciation of gratitude, I had to make cookies. I'm sure you can tell what I made for them already, nutella chocolate chip cookies. Let me tell you, your nostrils will definitely recognize these as part hazelnut and part chocolate when the dough is mixing in your machine. Seriously, your nostrils will pick up the scents of hazelnut and of chocolate and then your mouth will start to water. You will start to drool and then you will wish that the cookies didn't take 10 minutes to bake, because you want to eat them right now.

First, gather together your ingredients. 

1 1/3 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened, 1/2 cup Nutella, 1/3 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 egg, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/2 cup chocolate chips. 

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. In your mixing bowl, cream your butter first. 

Then add in the white and brown sugar into the butter and cream these three ingredients together. 

Add in the Nutella then at this part, (of course licking the spoon after scooping the Nutella into your measuring cup). Cream the Nutella into the butter and sugars for 3 to 4 minutes until fluffy and light. 






 Add in the egg and the vanilla extract after this. Scrap down the sides of the mixing bowl if necessary. 
Now add in the flour, the baking powder and baking soda and fully incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. 


Finally, add in the chocolate chips and throw a few into your mouth if you can't resist.  


Scoop out about a tablespoon full of dough and drop it onto your cookie sheet, these cookies will spread so place them about 2 inches apart. Let the cookies bake for about 10 minutes and allow the cookies to cool for 2 minutes after you take them out of the oven. This will allow the cookie to set a bit before you take them off of the cookie sheet. Then grab a tall glass of ice cold milk, and serve these cookies on a plate, eat and enjoy!
