5 Ingredients Needed

  • Egg – Use large eggs
  • Nutella – or other similar chocolate hazelnut spread
  • Brown sugar – be sure to pack it
  • Flour – all purpose flour measured correctly!
  • Chocolate chips – Or swap white chocolate chips or even mini chocolate chips or chopped nuts.
  • Nope you’re not missing it – there is no baking soda or baking powder in this recipe – that’s on purpose – you don’t need it!

How to Make Nutella Cookies

  1. Preheat the oven: Using silicone baking mats or parchment paper, line two cookie sheets and preheat the oven to 350°F. 
  2. Combine the ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine egg, sugar, Nutella, and flour. I recommend using a hand mixer to evenly combine all of the ingredients together! Mix ingredients until the cookie dough is thick in consistency. Once fully mixed, add the chocolate chips, saving just a bit for topping later on. 
  3. Form the cookies: Separate the dough into portions about two tablespoons in size, rolling them between your palms until a round ball forms. Set the dough balls onto the prepared cookie sheets, ensuring that each one is spaced about 3 inches from another. Finally, sprinkle chocolate chips on top of each cookie as desired.
  4. Bake: Place the baking sheets in the oven and bake them for 14 to 18 minutes. No need to chill – you bake these at room temperature. You’ll know they’re ready once they’ve lost their glossy texture on top. Allow your cookies to cool on the sheet for about 10 minutes before removing them from the sheet.

Expert Tip

  • These don’t flatten properly without a little help, so use the bottom of a glass or another flat object to flatten the tops of each cookie before putting them into the oven.
  • If you’re on a budget, there’s no need to splurge on the name brand. Generic chocolate hazelnut spread will do just as well – your guests won’t even know the difference. 
  • Add nuts with the chocolate chips or a pinch of sea salt on top for a nice salty sweet finish.
  • Want an extra chocolatey cookie? Make Nutella stuffed cookies by freezing 1 tablespoon balls of Nutella and wrapping them into the cookie dough before baking.
