Searching for Super Recipes: Peanut Butter-Nutella Cookies

The title should say it all.  These were so ridiculous, so decadent, that frankly I don’t know why I didn’t make these sooner.

It started out as a simple peanut butter cookie recipe that I got from Parents magazine a few years ago.  It’s got to be the easiest, most kid-friendly cookie recipe imaginable.

And then I added Nutella to it, and my mind was blown.

Here’s what you’ll need:

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

1/2 cup Nutella

1 cup sugar, plus 1/3 cup

1 egg


Here’s what you’ll do:

*Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Farenheit (just in case any of you crazy Celsius people are out there)

1) Pour one cup of sugar into a medium-sized bowl.  Pour the remainder onto a small plate.

2) Add the peanut butter and Nutella

3) Add one egg

4) Mix it together, until it looks like this:

5) Scoop out spoonfuls of the mixture and gently roll them in the extra sugar until you make a ball.  Note – this will be extremely sticky!

6) Place the balls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper

7) Take a fork and dip it into the extra sugar.  One at a time, press it onto the cookie balls – first in one direction, then in another.  You’ll probably need to re-dip the fork after each cookie.

8) Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown on the bottom and gooey.

9) Let stand for five minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool (or before transferring directly into your mouth)

This is all that I have left, because I stupidly forgot to take a picture yesterday after I baked them.  I’m lucky that I even had these!

Let know if you try it!
