Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love chocolate cookies…I mean who doesn’t? The idea of pairing the chocolate with Nutella seemed out of this world. For those unfamiliar with Nutella, it’s a hazelnut cocoa spread. I remember a lot of kids bringing Nutella sandwiches to school with them when I was young. The stuff is great in between bread or on top on pretty much any fruit. I’ve tried to melt the stuff into ganache, which wasn’t so successful, but beating it into sugar was quote simple. I was a bit disappointed in the fact that these cookies didn’t really taste like Nutella, but when I thought past that I realized that these were the best darn chocolate cookies I’ve even made! I love a crispy cookie, mainly because I am a milk lover (duh). Crunchy cookies soak up the milk best. When I bit into these cookies, they were crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I think the Nutella cools and almost hardens inside the cookie, giving them that nice texture. Trust me when I say that these will go fast!!
