I hope that everyone reading this has heard of nutella.
nutella is a Hazelnut Spread that has a similar consistency to peanut butter. It is amazing! It is a great dessert spread or sometimes in our house makes a great breakfast spread on toast. I know it totally isn’t healthy but some mornings you just need some nutella. We have wrapped it up in crescent rolls, made Grilled Nutella & Raspberry sandwich, spread it on bananas, and the list goes on and on.
The one thing I haven’t done with nutella was make cookies and I can’t believe I haven’t. I love peanut butter cookies but with nutella added in these were taken to a new level. A must try if you enjoy nutella. I found this recipe over at Lovin’ From the Oven and it will now be a keeper in my house.

~ 1/2 cup butter, softened
~ 3/4 cup peanut butter
~ 1/2 cup sugar
~ 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
~ 1 egg
~ 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
~ 3/4 tsp. baking soda
~ 1/4 tsp. salt
~ 1 3/4 cups flour
~ 1/4 cup Nutella
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cream together butter, peanut butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla. Gradually add the flour, baking soda and salt. Drizzle Nutella on top of the dough then swirl it through the dough with a butter knife.
3. Refrigerate the dough for 15 minutes. Roll the dough into tablespoon sized balls and use a fork to gently flatten the balls and create a criss-cross patter.
4. Bake for 7-10 minutes.
