I finally decided to buy some Nutella. I've wanted to try it for as long as I can remember. Why it took me so long to get the stuff? I have no clue. I discovered I love Nutella on a whole grain English muffin with apple and banana slices. mmmmmm. I also discovered I love Nutella cookies. I baked snickerdoodles for work last week and decided to throw these together too. The hubster and I loved them. Chocolaty Goodness with just a hint of hazelnut. Very good. I'd give them an 8.

1/3 c. light brown sugar

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 large egg
1/2 c. peanut butter chips
1/2 c. toasted and skinned hazelnuts, coarsely chopped omitted


Preheat oven to 350 F. Sift together flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
Cream together butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in Nutella and vanilla extract. Add egg.

Add flour mixture and mix until just incorporated. Add peanut butter chips and hazelnuts.

Drop tablespoons of dough 2 inches apart onto parchment lined baking sheets. Bake for about 11 minutes until the edges look set. Cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes then carefully remove to cooling racks

Those look so good! I love Nutella, but don't buy it often because it's way too easy to stick a spoon in the jar and just eat it that way! I'm marking these to try!
