Double Chocolate Cookie Goodness
These scrumptious chocolate cookies are super easy to whip together and even easier to devour. And the best thing about this recipe that I share with you today is that it produces a massive batch, which means heaps and heaps of cookies. So there is no need to hold back from temptation, you can have as many as you want. YEAH!!!
Normally when making chocolate based cookies I would use the old faithful cocoa powder. But today my friends I have added something special instead, one of my favorite spreads, Nutella. I love, love, love this stuff. It takes me back to my trip to Paris where my Mum and I would walk around the Parisian streets eating freshly made Nutella stuffed crepes that we brought from some pokey little creperie. You just don’t get that kinda thing around these parts.
Now there really isn’t enough of this spread in the recipe to go around calling it a Nutella cookie, and they really don’t have a strong Nutella flavor either, but it does make the base taste absolutely spectacular. Now throw in some brown sugar, cinnamon and chunks of white chocolate to the mix and you have gotcha self a pretty amazing cookie.
These cookies will keep for a week when kept in a dry cool place in an airtight container.

Double Chocolate Cookies
- 3¼ oz 90g butter softened
- 2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 4 heaped tablespoons Nutella or simular hazelnut spread
- 1 free-range egg
- 1 cup plain flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¾ cup white chocolate roughly chopped
Because this recipe is for a larger batch you will need a larger sized cookie tray or do what I do and cook the cookies in 2 batches.
- Heat oven to 350 (180C) and line a cookie tray with parchment paper.
- Using an electric hand mixer (or some serious elbow grease) cream the butter, brown sugar and Nutella until pale.
- Mix in the egg then sift in the dry ingredients and mix well. Stir through the white chocolate.
- Roll heaped teaspoons of the mixture into little balls (mine were a little under an inch in diameter) and place on the tray allowing room for spreading. Press down on each cookie gently with a fork.
- Bake for about 12 minutes, turning the tray half way if your oven is not fan-forced. Allow to cool on the tray for a few minutes before turning out onto a wire rack.
