Nutella-Hazelnut Cookies

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed it or not, but there is a serious lack of recipes that include Nutella on this site. Maybe it’s never something you thought about, or maybe you’ve been asking yourself why in the world I don’t have any Nutella recipes. Well, it almost shames my foodie heart to tell you that up until very recently (read: last week) I really wasn’t sure I even liked Nutella. I felt very ambivalent about it. I could take it or leave it, and honestly couldn’t understand what all the hubbub was about. Sure, I had tried it once or twice, and it was okay, but I guess I just didn’t get it. Heck, even my 91-year-old Grandma was on the Nutella train last year. It was a staple of her diet – every morning, on a piece of toast, with a layer of peanut butter underneath. She was clearly more hip than her food blogger granddaughter. These cookies, however, may be a game-changer for me. As in, I could have eaten the entire batch in one sitting without looking back. They have a fudge-like texture and the flavor is the most amazing combination of chocolate and nutty. Throw in some sugar, espresso powder and more chopped nuts, and you have Nutella cookie nirvana.

It’s a good thing that my Chief Culinary Consultant’s dad’s birthday rolled around or I might still be mucking it up in “I don’t think I like Nutella” land. He looooooves hazelnuts and is a big fan of Nutella, so when I ran across these cookies in a magazine a couple of months ago I doggy-eared the page with a note to make them for his birthday. Last week I made them happen in my kitchen and after packing up a box of them to ship down to Florida for his birthday, I took my first bite of one of the leftovers. And I was in heaven. The remaining leftovers were polished off before bedtime. Now I know why my Chief Culinary Consultant was enamored with the Nutella and strawberry/banana crepes when we’d order from Crepes-a-Go-Go.

I was so wrapped up in Super Bowl prep last week that I didn’t even realize World Nutella Day was this past Sunday. Perhaps it was divine intervention that I had my eyes opened to Nutella just a few days before. In celebration of the holiday and of my new-found affinity for it, tell me – do you love Nutella? Are you indifferent? If you do, what’s your favorite way to eat it?

Nutella-Hazelnut Cookies

Yield: About 3 dozen cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes active + 2 hours inactive

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours 30 minutes

Ingredients:

3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1¼ cups Nutella
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1-1/3 cups granulated sugar
2 eggs, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
1/3 cup milk
2 cups hazelnuts, toasted and finely chopped
1 cup powdered sugar

Directions:

1. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl; set aside. With an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat the Nutella, butter, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the eggs, vanilla, and espresso powder and mix until incorporated. Reduce the speed to low and alternate additions of flour mixture and milk, starting and ending with the flour, and mixing until just combined after each addition. Fold in ½ cup of the hazelnuts. Refrigerate the dough until firm, at least 2 hours and up to 24 hours.

2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Place the remaining hazelnuts and the powdered sugar in two separate bowls. Using a medium cookie scoop (or about 2 tablespoonfuls), roll the dough into balls, roll in the hazelnuts, then roll in the powdered sugar. Place the balls 2 inches apart on the baking sheets. Bake until the edges are set and the middle still looks a tad soft, about 10 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature.

    I’m italian and I think I don’t like Nutella. Shame on me! Maybe it’s beacuse two or three years ago I used to eat half a jar a day, on its own. Or maybe it’s because it’s too sweet. But i’m not too keen on Nutella. Definitely not

    How do you pack your cookies to ship? I usually wrap tightly in cling wrap and then wrap foil over the top of that. Just wondering if there is a better way…

      Hi Christine, I usually wrap each cookie individually with plastic wrap, then wrap a bundle of them together in plastic wrap, put in a cookie box, wrap with bubble wrap, then put that box inside a slightly larger shipping box.

    You described me there: indifferent, not a fan, etc. I’d never give that to my kids for breakfast (like the commercials suggest)! lol I did buy a jar tho when my daughter was coming for a visit from Scotland. She said she loved the stuff. The jar sat unopened in our pantry for the full 4 month visit, despite my reminding her it was there..lol However, putting it in a cookie recipe might change my mind..I love hazelnuts and chocolate, gooey cookies, espresso flavor..it all sounds like perfection to me. I can’t wait to try these. I’m sure I’ll have no trouble eating every single cookie. I’ll hold myself back and let hubby have one or two tho ;) Maybe.

    I am ambivalent about Nutella also. It just doesn’t do it for me on its own. But this past Christmas I made a big batch of Peanut Butter Blossoms, and then decided why not try making the Blossoms with Nutella in place of the PB? Turned out delicious, crunchy but chewy, if you know what I mean. I am making these cookies for sure this weekend, but I will omit the nuts — I just don’t like nuts in my baked goods. But will follow the rest of the recipe exactly. Can’t wait to try them!

I am SO excited to be going to the Pillsbury Bake-Off finals in Orlando in March (yay!), and thought I would share my recipe with you since Nutella is a main ingredient! They are the Chocolate Hazelnut Coconut Bars found on the Pillsbury website. They have a coconut cheese-cakey center and a Nutella crust – they might be right up your alley. :) Thanks for the great blog, it’s one of the first things I sit down and read when I get home from work each day.

    Sounds like fate…and a great looking cookie! I love Nutella but my policy with it is pretty much the same as my policy with peanut butter which is – why use it as an ingredient in something else when I’d much rather sit there with the jar and a big spoon. That’s also why I don’t keep either of those things in the house lest I not be able to get back up again :)

    Man, those look amazing. I have never really understood the whole Nutella-Love either. I like it a lot, and have bought it and used it but I don’t have it in the house all the time. I have a friend whose husband is actually from Italy and has to have a jar in the house at all times but she isn’t all that thrilled with it either.

    Here in NJ, they sell it on TV in a Shop Rite commercial where they suggest giving it to your children as breakfast on toast. Isn’t it filled with sugar? I find that kind of offensive. I can see as dessert or for baking but for a “healthy” breakfast??? I question the ethics of that. Anyway, I do like it and I would make these, altho’ my son is allergic to most nuts (just had that tested recently). I don’t normally have nut-filled things in the house.

      Hi Candice, Usually if a cookie doesn’t spread it’s because the oven isn’t hot enough. Do you use an oven thermometer to ensure that the oven temperature reading is correct?

    Hi MIchelle,

    No, I don’t use an oven thermometer as I don’t have one. Where can I purchase one? Does any thermometer work (i.e., meat thermometer)? Or could I increase the baking temperature to 380 degrees?

      Hi Candice, A meat thermometer won’t work, but you can find an oven thermometer pretty much anywhere. I just bought one at a Publix grocery store in Florida (a lot of grocery stores now have an aisle or part of an aisle with kitchen/baking supplies). You can also find them at places like Target, Wal-Mart, Bed Bath & Beyond, etc. They are typically around $5.

      Hi Candace, No need to apologize! The dough is refrigerated so that it doesn’t spread too much when it is baking.

    Sorry Michelle, I have another question. I’m a newbie to baking so please bare with me.

    The cookies looks like they should be crunchy from your cookie, however, mine were very doughy in the middle. I know one of the reasons is because the cookies didn’t spread like the ones from your picture. I wanted to find out if the cookies are supposed to be indeed crunchy.

    Thanks.

    I made these a few days ago. I was in heaven! The cookies were still warm. They were the perfect combination of chewy and crunchy.

    I didn’t use the Nutella brand, because I shop at Trader Joe’s and use their brand. Their version is made with almonds instead of hazelnuts. So for this batch, I did use chopped almonds instead of chopped hazelnuts. Next time I will try this with Nutella and hazelnuts and see which one I like better.

    I packed one cookie in my son’s lunch box yesterday, and he said that a swarm of kids surrounded him, asking for a piece of his one cookie. He told them that it had almonds in it, in the hopes that it would deter them, but apparently they didn’t care.

    Today I brought the rest to work. It made everyone’s day! One person requested a Nutella cream filled cookie. Add that to your list, BEB!

    I love Nutella! Having grown up in Europe, it was definitely something we always stocked our shelves with! My favorite way to eat it is on bread or toast with butter underneath and Nutella on top… it’s best when you slather butter on bread fresh out of the toaster, so it melts a little and with the Nutella on top! SOO good! I can’t wait to try these cookies!

    Ack! I got ahead of myself and added all 2 cups of the hazelnuts at once to the dough mixture. Is it a problem? Should I leave it as is or toast some more hazelnuts to roll the cookie dough in?

      It’s up to you, if you want a crunchy exterior, you can chop more nuts to roll the cookies in; otherwise, you can leave them as-is.

    Just made these cookies a few days ago and they were just delicious. So surprisingly chewy! I made some without hazelnuts inside (for my son) and didn’t roll them on the outside with additional hazelnuts. They were just great. My 8-yr old just loved them. Thanks for sharing the recipe! : )
