Nutella Cookies: What Batter Could Be Better?

Nutella is one of my favorite foods. Spreadable hazelnut chocolate, best served on a crispy slice of toast, Nutella was originally invented as a means to extend the depleted cocoa supply of the war-torn 1940s. Nutella is peanut butter’s delicious cousin, and a college student’s best friend. Full disclosure: I’ve been known to eat it straight out of the jar, especially late at night. This recipe is essentially a glorified chocolate chip cookie. But when the glory lies in gooey, creamy Nutella, you have the kind of snack that you can’t help but help yourself to. There are also good recipes for Nutella cupcakes, pastries and ice cream. Nutella makes everything better!
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup Nutella
1-1/2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Separately, cream together the butter and sugars, then add the vanilla and eggs. Gradually add the dry ingredients until completely combined. Then stir in the Nutella and chocolate chips. Finally, drop the batter by rounded spoon onto cookie sheets, and bake for 10-11 minutes.
