chocolate nutella cookies

These were the cookies that I had intended on making for my cookie swap matches and they didn’t turn out as spectacular as I had hoped & it’s nothing against anyone though so don’t get offended. I really wanted to like these because they had Nutella in them but they just didn’t turn out right. I could’ve just gone ahead and sent them anyway to avoid making a new batch of cookies, but I really didn’t want to send half-ass cookies to my cookie swap matches. That’s pretty lame and inconsiderate and definitely not who I am.

I think these didn’t turn out because the hazelnut flavor wasn’t as strong and they just tasted like chocolate wafer cookies. Which, by the way, the positive of this flubbed batch is that they’re awesome to dunk in milk, kinda like oreos and Jason loves these as mini sweet tooth snacks. So, I guess it wasn’t as bad as I thought. Anyway, I digress. You have no idea how hard it was and still is, to find hazelnut extract. I went to about 5 different stores in the area! However, I read that I could just add more vanilla extract to it instead, which I did, but obviously that didn’t really work. Amazon had hazelnut extract but they were sold in 3 packs and really, how often was I going to use it?

Anyway, I thought I’d share these anyway just for you to look at.

    I am not a lover of Nutella (gasp!) I like it but I would much rather have some peanut butter! These cookies look amazing though…they look like they melt in your mouth!

    I just stumbled across your page and I LOVE it! We have the same interests. I studied web design and loved it, but I was too intimidated to pursue it bc I was so sensitive about my work and I didn’t want to end up hating one of my passions, so I just switched to database programming which I think helps me deal with my self-diagnosed OCD urges to organize everything. Anywho..I love photography as well..and of course eating! I saw this recipe and I was wondering if you could use Hazelnut flavored syrup? Like the ones they use for coffee? Torani makes sugar-free flavors..and even DollarTree sells Hazelnut syrup(although it’s not sugar-free, but hey its $1)! Meh, I hope this helps even though this post was awhile back and you have probably mastered it by now.

      Hey Charlene! Thanks for the comment and love :) I like the HTML/CSS part more than the design. I actually hate design :) I’m sure you could definitely use hazelnut syrup in this, kind of like an addition to vanilla extract or a substitution. Thanks for the comment and looking forward to sharing more with you!

    Hi Julie! Just discovered your blog & I’m loving it!

    Just wanted to share a great place to buy Hazelnut extract – They have all kinds of fun flavorings in various sizes.

    Chocolate Nutella Cookie question — I read the recipe but it has only 1/2 cup of brown sugar. The directions said to cream the butter and sugars ( sugars plural). Is there a sugar ingredient missing or is ” sugars” ( plural) a typo?

    Am a new reader and am enjoying some of your recipes.

      Hi Deborah, so glad to have you here! I actually don’t recommend you making this recipe. It’s categorized under my “oopsies” category which means the recipe didn’t turn out. If you really do want to make this though, the recipe should have 1/2 cup of granulated in addition to 1/2 cup of brown sugar – I messed up typing it. Thanks for the catch. I’m going to remove this recipe though since it didn’t work out and it shouldn’t be passed on :) hope you can find something else on the blog to make! Have a great day!
