Nutella chocolate chip cookies

Whats up you guys! I was visiting my family back home this past week and hence am in the best of spirits . Besides , in the upcoming couple of months , depending on your faith and what part of the country you are from – a festival is never more than a week away ! September and October are gonna be months of celebrations and holidays and merry making – and I am planning to make the best of it!

Off to a great start with these cookies!

I was asked to make chocolate chip cookies by a friend and wanting to try something different (but still universally acceptable among my chocolate craving friends) , I tried Nutella cookies. Its a simple recipe from Sugar spun run. I swapped out the crushed oreos for some chocolate chips, reduced the sugar some . Otherwise, stuck to the recipe .


The cookie is full of rich Nutella flavour , it is chewy and moist thanks to all that brown sugar. Definitely worth using up all that Nutella . You know – instead of just eating it straight out of the jar.


Exploding with Nutella in each bite , this recipe is a keeper . They are on the sweeter side , so will go down well with a nice cup of coffee (for you) or a tall glass of milk. (for your kid or the kid in you!) .

Recipe Notes

Step by step Tutorial:



  • These can be stored at room temperature for about 3-4 days in an airtight container.
  • I used a small jar of nutella ( 160 grams) which gave me about 36 large cookies.
  • Chilling the dough just helps keep the shape of the cookies better.
  • Space the cookies out well as these spread quite a bit.
  • Be gentle with the cookies when out of the oven, they will still be soft but will firm up on cooling.
