Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn't love Nutella?  Crazy people that's who!  

Sure, it's still a close second to peanut butter in my book but nevertheless I love the stuff!

It gives you an excuse to each chocolate for breakfast! Who's going to argue with that?

Anyway, I decided to make this recipe because I had some ingredients I wanted to use up and these fit the bill.  Not only were these cookies INSANELY easy to make, but they were absolutely scrumptious to eat!

Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies
Recipe Adapted From: Lovin' From The Oven

1/2 C unsalted butter, softened
1/2 C granulated sugar
1/2 C packed brown sugar
1/2 C Nutella
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 C flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 C mini chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350 Degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Cream the butter and sugars together until it is light and fluffy.  Stir in the egg, vanilla, and Nutella with a wooden spoon.

Add in the flour, baking soda and salt and mix until combined, do not over mix!  Fold in the chocolate chips.

Drop large Tablespoon sized portions onto the sheet and bake for 6-8 minutes.

Let cool for a couple minutes on the pan before removing.
