Welcome to my kitchen, where it's kinda obvious I can not resist any type of pretty thing for my house.
It's been a problem for a while now, you might have noticed over the years I have the same thing going on with food which I frequently decorate with pink sugar flowers and sprinkles, because most everything tastes better that way.
But not these cookies. Nope, they will not win any beauty contests, but oh the taste, the yummy chocolately taste will win you over in no time.
There seems to be a lot of ingredients, but these are easy to make if you have a mixer to help cream the butter and sugar together. Just follow the steps and soon you will have a batch of soft chocolately cookies of your own.
Also make sure you take them out while they are still soft, they will continue to cook on the tray a little bit and as they cool they will harden up a little bit.
Like all chocolate chip cookies I love them best when they are still a bit warm, but if you can resist you can store them in a cookie jar for up to 3 days.
Happy Baking Xx
Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe (makes 20 Super delicious cookies)
Conversions are rounded to nearest 5 gram.
250g (9oz) plain (all purpose) flour
30g (1oz) cocoa powder
2 tsp cornflour (cornstarch)
1 tsp bicarb soda (baking soda)
115g (4oz) unsalted butter at room temperature
115g (4oz) brown sugar (approx 1/2 cup)
60g (2oz) white sugar (approx 1/4 cup) * I used caster or superfine but regular is ok
1 large egg
145g (5oz) Nutella (heaped 1/3 cup)
230g (8 3/4oz) chocolate chips or chunks * I used a mixture
Preheat oven to 160C (320 F) and line 2 or 3 trays with baking paper.
Sift together flour, cocoa powder, cornflour (cornstarch) and bicarb soda (baking soda).
Cream butter and both sugars for approx 3 minutes at high speed. Reduce speed to medium-low and mix in egg and then Nutella until combined.
Add flour mixture, mix at low speed until just combined and then add the chocolate chips mixing until the chips are distributed evenly.
Place approx 2 Tbsp (US 2 1/2Tbsp) mounds of cookie dough onto prepared trays leaving enough room for the cookie to spread during baking. Flatten the cookie dough slightly.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. The cookies will still be soft when you remove them, however leave on trays to cool and you will be able to pic them up.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
