Ever since a friend of mine brought over some amazing nutella brownies a couple weeks ago, I’ve been dying to make a dessert of my own with the addictive chocolate hazelnut spread. With a little research, I discovered that you don’t have to add many things to nutella to make a delicious brownie batter or cookie dough. You can even make gluten-free nutella brownies with just three ingredients. However, I decided to make cookies–I was craving something that was both chewy and crunchy, and wanted another chance to use my Cuina silicone baking mat.
I was almost all set to make these cookies–I just needed a jar of nutella. So, in case you were wondering, here is how to spend most of your day on a desperate search for chocolate hazelnut spread:
1. Wake up and tell your boyfriend he can take the car to work, since it’s your spring break and all you really have to do all day is make cookies.
2. After he leaves, immediately regret your decision when you remember you need to go out and buy nutella for the cookies.
3. Eat some leftover bacon & sweet potato chili with a fried egg on top for breakfast, while wondering if there’s any way to get nutella delivered to your home. You decide there probably isn’t.
