Who wants some soft Nutella chocolate chip cookies??
I know it has been a little quiet around here for a week, but I will make it so worth the wait!! With the help of my favourite ingredient (um… Nutella! Duh!), you can have cookies ready start to finish in 15 minutes. Sounds too good to be true, right?
Wrong! It happened in my kitchen, and now I want it to happen in yours.
Let me quickly explain to you why I have been missing this past week, so you can all forgive me, and we can bond over some soft, fudgy cookies. Sounds good? Good.
Even though I knew I would undoubtedly go through baking and blogging withdrawal, I knew I needed to just GO and get away. Unplug a little before next year. Because next year is when the real work begins.
Not saying that I never really worked hard before. I have been waking up at 5-6 AM to start my day teaching, lesson planning and marking, then going to sleep well past midnight. Repeat this day after day for a year, and that was my life. Now I got a new teaching job at a new, ah-mazing school (it has a freaking pool in it!) teaching math in French, I will need to work extra hard to keep up with these students and their parents, but also to refresh my French speaking skills.
Rewarding myself with some cookies? Yes please!
But enough about me. Let’s get back to these cookies!!
If you have been following my blog for some time now, you will know that when I am not spooning Nutella into my mouth by the spoonful, I am stuffing it in any baking recipe I possibly can. From banana muffins to crescent rolls to mug cakes (obvs. one of my favourite things), I seriously can’t get enough!
But between you and me, these cookies are my favourite Nutella treat by FAR. Or maybe with my Nutella brownies coming in at a close second. They are so chewy and soft that they will keep you coming back for a second. Then a third. Then a forth.
Then the whole batch is gone. Good thing it is nearing the end of swimsuit season.
Super soft and fudgy Nutella chocolate chip cookies that are easy to make, and ready in 15 minutes.
