Cookie Monster: Nutella Dream Cookies
How did these cookies get their name? First, because chocolate-chocolate chip hazelnut cookies filled with chocolate-hazelnut spread must be a Nutella lover's dream. And second, because these over-the-top confections are the kind of thing that I dream about after spending too much time grazing food blogs just before bed. (I wake up hungry but it's better than watching the news.)
These cookies have a soft and cakey chocolate exterior that's studded with chocolate chips and chopped hazelnuts. Moist and doubly chocolaty, I would be happy with these cookies on their own. But why not push these into fantasy territory by filling the center of each cookie with rich, gooey Nutella?
Rolling and filling these cookies takes a bit of time and a light hand. But I promise they're completely worth it—especially when you serve them warm and Nutella oozes out. Yes, I've made some decadent cookies before, but these take the er, cake.
