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.
1 cup of flour
1 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup of butter
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.
Press thumb into center of cookie to create a dent that will hold the Nutella.
Bake for 10 minutes. Allow to cool completely.
Take a spoon and top the cooled cookies with a heap of Nutella.
