Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies

Nutella is magical. Can we just agree on that? And these Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies are essentially Nutella Cookies, which makes them the most magical cookies!

I have a love/hate relationship with Nutella. I grew up eating it on pita bread in Africa, and it was a wonderful snack that was also a special treat for us. When I moved to the states and my mom found it in grocery stores, it was a like a little piece of my childhood came back with us here. So, we continued to buy it, slap it on pita bread, eat it out of the jar and even experiment with it to make cupcakes and muffins.

But about 5-10 years ago day I started learning that some of its ingredients were just not the healthiest or the type of ingredients that will make your body feel good. So I stopped buying it for the most part. I tried other healthy brand variations of chocolate hazelnut spreads and I liked them, but they never had the Nutella ummpphhh. So long story short, I buy Nutella once or twice a year, indulge and then forget about it. If you want to make these Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies, you can use any hazelnut chocolate spread.
