I have to admit—I’m kinda running out of things to say about cookies.
This is cookie #11, and the only thoughts running through my head at this point are, “COOKIES GOOD. EAT.” Spoken, of course, in Cookie Monster’s voice.
What, Cookie Monster isn’t the voice inside your head? Just me?
It’s really unfortunate that I can’t drum up anything more eloquent to say about these Nutella cookies, because they deserve my absolute best write-up. They are absolutely delicious. They’re like if peanut butter cookie dough took one too many shots of Nutella, and then did a cliff dive into a pool of roasted hazelnuts. They’re crunchy and craggy on the outside, but soft and chewy inside, with an awesome crunch from a heavy-handed dose of hazelnuts.
I would call these cookies a “workhorse” cookie. They aren’t going to win any awards at your office cookie contest, and I highly doubt they’ll be the next smash sensation to take over your Pinterest feed, but they are darn delicious, easy to make, and chances are, you have almost all the ingredients to whip up a batch right now. They’re also pretty much impossible to mess up. And, dare I say it, they’re almost a little bit kinda healthy. I mean, they have peanut butter and hazelnuts in them. Healthy fats and all that.
I hope you’ll give these Nutella crunch cookies the benefit of the doubt, and not blame them for my totally cookied-out brain. I swear, they are worth your consideration.
