NUTELLA SNICKERDOODLES combine my favorite cookie with my favorite hazelnut spread making this cookie crave-worthy!
I love chewy snickerdoodle cookies. They are an afternoon weakness of mine. Especially my White Chocolate Caramel Snickerdoodles. I was craving them the other week when I went to make them realizing I didn’t have a key ingredient, white chocolate. I resorted to grabbing my jar of Nutella and eating it by the spoonful. That is when I had the genius idea of making these Nutella Snickerdoodles.
A soft, chewy Nutella cookie with a hint of cinnamon making a ridiculous, delicious combination.
I am a huge Nutella fan. I especially love it in cakes, like my Double Chocolate Nutella Cake. And I never thought it would be as good in a cookie, but I was so wrong. It doesn’t matter how you eat Nutella – it is deliciously amazing in any shape or form.
So whether you love snickerdoodle cookies or Nutella, it won’t really matter either way you will love these Nutella Snickerdoodles. If you have any leftover, which you probably won’t be sure to share a few with a friend. I mean a little Nutella pick-me-up has never hurt anyone.
