I can't even remember when was the last time I made cookies,
Usually there is always some kind of chocolaty snacks at home,
You know, it always helps when my sudden urge for sweet treats arise late at night.
But unfortunately, all the choco stuff has been missing from my fridge and the kitchen shelves,
There must be a chocolate monster wandering around the house,
I think I can see that monster every time I looked into the mirror...
Hmmm...who can that be?
Anyways, so to solve my sweet tooth crisis,
Shall we make some chocolate chip cookies infused with nutella?
Ingredients (for about a dozen)?
1 cup of all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
Tiny pinch of salt
1/2 stick or 1/4 cup of butter
1/2 cup of packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 tablespoons of nutella
1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
Line the parchment paper on a baking sheet.
Meanwhile let's get two big bowls ready,
One for the dry ingredients and the other for the wet ingredients.
For the dry stuff,
Sift the flour and mix the remaining ingredients into the bowl.
For the wet stuff,
First melt the butter or just use the room temperature one for the cookies,
I always use melted butter because it's easier for mixing.
Now use a food processor or an electric hand mixer to mix the butter and brown sugar,
Add the vanilla extract along with one egg, mix well.
In the end, add two tablespoons of nutella and mix till fully incorporated.
Now gradually pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients,
I did it with two batches,
Gently mix in the first batch and then pour in the remaining dry ingredients,
Combine well, but don't over-mix it.
Add the chocolate chips,
Use a spatula to gently incorporate the chips into the mixture.
Use an ice cream scoop or a regular spoon will do,
Scoop out the mixture evenly to the baking sheet,
Into the oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or till the edges turned slightly dark brown color,
When the cookies are done, let it cool for a little bit before serving.
Ahhhh this batch of cookies will last me at least a few days,
No more digging through the shelves for the last few pieces of chocolate late at night!
I'm keeping my figures crossed that the mysterious cookie monster won't show up anytime soon!
