Nutella® Holiday Cookies


This is one of my favorite Christmas cookies. I just can't resist cookies during the holidays! I changed the recipe a little myself, but most things I tried to keep the same, despite my constant urge to make things healthier. I kept this one full-fat.

28 cookies


  • 1 cup lightly packed brown sugar

  • 1 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread (such as Nutella®)

  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips (Optional)

  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Mix brown sugar, chocolate-hazelnut spread, chocolate chips, egg, and baking soda together in a large bowl. Drop rounded teaspoons of mixture, at least 1 1/2-inches apart, onto the prepared baking sheets.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are puffed and cracked, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool cookies on baking sheet until firm, about 5 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Cook's Note:

You can use plain peanut butter as well. I like to make them with semi-sweet chocolate chips when I'm out of Nutella(R).

Stevia brown sugar can be substituted for the brown sugar. Walnuts can be substituted for the chocolate chips.
