Nutella and peanut butter: the world’s best combination now in cookie form! When I heard about these cookies I knew I had to try them for myself. Thank goodness I did! They are delicious and all my friends looooove them. Here is how to make these chocolatey bits of joy.
- 1 -3/4 cups flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
- 3/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
- 1 room temperature egg
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup Nutella
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set it aside. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the butter, peanut butter and both sugars. Beat on medium speed for about 5 minutes, until it is creamy and smooth. Add the egg and vanilla and beat to combine. Scrape down the sides of the bowl if you need to. Turn the mixer down to low speed and then slowly add the dry ingredients. Beat until just combined. Use a large wooden spoon to gently stir in the Nutella. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
Preheat the oven to 350F and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Measure out a tablespoon of dough for each cookie. Use a fork to make a criss-cross pattern on each and bake for 8-9 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the sheets for about 2 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
These sound like the perfect late night munchy, or a great way to satisfy my sweet tooth!
