Nutella chocolate chip cookies

Nutella is one of my favourite spreads and I’ve always wanted to make Nutella chocolate chip cookies. Unfortunately, I have a bad habit of eating Nutella straight from the jar like ice cream that I forbid myself from buying it in Australia. Now that I’m back in Singapore for two weeks, I saw that my family has Nutella spread and I knew that I had to do all the Nutella baking that I want.

These cookies are slightly different from the rest of my cookie recipes. It’s a softer and more chewy. The Nutella acts like butter too, so I reduced the amount of butter needed for the cookie dough. If you prefer a crunchy kind of cookie, replace the brown sugar with caster sugar. I was very generous with the Nutella and you could taste it in the cookies which was perfect for me. Oh and did I mention that these cookies taste great with warm milk? Hope that you enjoyed them as much as I did!
