Nutella Cookies

Nutella Cookies – just 3 ingredients to make these super easy, fudgy, chocolate-y and delicious cookies!

If there is one thing that you know about me it is I like Nutella! There are tons of recipes using Nutella on the blog already, including a version to make Homemade Nutella!

These cookies have been on the blog for almost 10 years, so I am giving them a little facelift, so you can be sure to find them and make them as well. They are so fudgy and full of that chocolate hazelnut flavor.

What Is Nutella

I think most people know what Nutella is by now, you can find it at even the smallest of grocery stores near the peanut butter. It is a spread using chocolate and hazelnuts. There are lots of different brands and options out there for the spread, technically Nutella is the brand name. But if you have a different chocolate hazelnut spread, it will 100% work and be the same in these cookies.

What You’ll Need

  • Nutella
  • Egg
  • All-Purpose Flour

Yes, that is it! Just 3 ingredients is all it takes to make these over the top cookies. No mixer required, and they are ready in just no time.

These Nutella cookies are super soft and almost fudgy. And they will stay that way for 3-4 days in an airtight container. The recipe only makes about 14 cookies, so they probably won’t stick around that long!

I just made them and they turned out AMAZING! I have a few tips just because the recipe wasn't very detailed.

First, I whipped the egg yolk by itself before folding in the Nutella. I added the flour gradually so it wasn't that crumbly. I actually "kneaded" it like pizza dough. For me, i guess you had to preheat longer, because after ten minutes, the cookies were still soft-ish and I had realized the oven wasn't at full temperature when i put the cookies in.

I bet they turn out great no matter what though!
