I just love Nutella. When I studied abroad in Italy, I discovered my deep love for this creamy, chocolaty hazelnut spread. I used to put it on anything from  baguettes to bananas. Basically anything is delicious if it is topped with Nutella! Here is a simple chocolate cookie topped with Nutella to make it the perfect sweet bite.

Nutella Cookies

1 cup of flour

1 cup powdered sugar

1/3 cup cocoa powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup of butter

2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Nutella, to top

Preheat oven to 350. Mix together flour, sugar, cocoa powder and salt. In a separate bowl stir together the butter, eggs and vanilla extract. Add to dry mixture and mix until well combined. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and arrange on a greased cookie sheet, 1 inch apart.
