Cinnamon Pretzel Nutella Cookies

6 Mar

I am having a love affair with Nutella. I crave it all the time, i get butterflies in my tummy when i see it and i cant stop thinking about it.  Its like a boyfriend who you know isn’t good for you but in times of comfort, you go back to him. Last night, i was having one of those nights. The kind of night where all you want to do is eat a damn cookie or three and watch bad romantic comedies. I found a recipe on http://www.loveandoliveoil.com/ for these delicious Nutella cookies. I pretty much followed the recipe to a tea but i did add a dash of cinnamon to add warmth and a handful of pretzels for the salty sweet combination. They where exactly the kind of comfort i needed.

INGREDIENTS:

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Nutella or other hazelnut chocolate spread
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup of pretzels, crushed up.
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cream butter with an electric mixer about 1 minute until smooth. Add in both sugars. Beat on high speed about 3 minutes until light and fluffy, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.

With the mixer on low, add the egg and vanilla. Then add Nutella and cinnamon mix until well combined.

In a small bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, and mix on low speed until incorporated. Increase the speed to medium and mix just until the dough is smooth. Fold in chocolate chips and pretzels.

Using a small ice cream scoop (or a teaspoon), form the dough into balls and place on parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake 6-7 minutes or until set. Let cookies cool about 5 minutes and transfer to a rack to cool completely.
