We love Nutella so much! It has such delicious hazel nut and chocolate flavor and it amazing on almost anything! spread it on apples, waffles or just use a spoon.
Let’s get to these Nutella Sugar Cookies! First how can you resist a chocolate cookie? And then top that flavor with hazelnut and you have a winner for sure. We just love Nutella. This cookie recipe was given to me at a cookie swap a few years ago. They were dusted with powdered sugar and tasted SO good!
These cookies have just enough to chocolatety hazelnut flavor in them yet you still can tell they are a sugar cookie.
These cookies are amazing as is but also delicious if you choose to decorate them. We have iced them and used chocolate sprinkles. If your really a chocolate lover make a chocolate icing. And of course the way we first had them with powdered sugar.
First we love slice and bake cookies. They are one of the easiest cookies to make I think.
You can make a double batch and throw one in the freezer for later when you need a quick dessert. Just thaw and bake. Having almost ready made desserts in the freezer in a huge help for when company is coming over last minute or you feel like something sweet and don’t feel like or don’t have the time to make something.
So if your a sugar cookie, chocolate, nutella lover you should try these cookies. I’m pretty sure you are going to love them.
