There are those Pinterest food moments where I literally find myself thinking- I would pay good money to have what I see on the screen appear in front of me, just so I could eat it right now. These cookies are just that. They’ve been sitting on my cookie pin board for months and I finally got the chance to make them this weekend. They are the epitome of ooey gooey cookie amazing-ness. The feeling of pulling them apart borders on the satisfaction I get from pulling apart a hot grilled cheese. Are you drooling yet?
These guys are admittedly a little more finicky to make than your typical chocolate chip cookie. Wrapping the dough neatly around the Nutella without having it seep out takes some dexterity, but just make sure your Nutella is really really cold- that makes a world of difference. Since they are a step above your traditional chocolate chip cookie, they’d be perfect for an at home Valentine’s Day celebration- the only kind of V-day celebration I care to partake in. Prep the dough the night before and then bake them up just before you serve one of these killer dishes. Ok? Got it? Great!
Hope everyone’s week is off to a great start.
