Chocolate Chip? Oh yes.
Cookies? Good gracious yes.
The aforementioned was my mental dialogue as I decided the type of dessert I wanted to make for our recent all-nighter work session. With days spent working on one motion with a strict deadline, I look forward to the breaks to do anything but work, including but not limited to work work, house work, family work, administrative work, and anything with work attached to the end of it.
Baking is anything but for me. I spend other break times to determine what to bake during my breaks.
Using Nutella in the dough gives you a soft and smooth consistency. You shouldn’t expect an overwhelming Nutella flavor. Rather, what you get is a layers of flavor in the different chocolates. Use good quality dark chocolate chips to really increase the depth of chocolate you can experience in this cookie.
