Nutella Crater Cookies

IMG_4764If you are a nutella fiend, then this cookie is for you. It is absolutely delicious with it’s chocolate-y goodness and the gooey nutella center. I found the recipe at The Casual Baker‘s site and I’ve fallen in love with them. It’s a super simple recipe too, all you need is nutella and a few extra ingredients. They’re almost like meringue cookies in that they tend to melt in your mouth the minute you eat one.

So let’s get started!

Ingredients:

-12 ounces powdered sugar
-2 ounces cocoa powder
-1/4 tsp salt
-3 egg whites, at room temperature
-1 tsp vanilla
-a jar of nutella

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together the powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and the salt. Add in the egg whites one by one, beating with an electric mixer until well blended before adding the next egg white. Mix in the vanilla and beat again for another 2 minutes on high.
  3. Drop a heaping tablespoon of the cookie batter Β onto the prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Then take a small spoon and drop a small dollop of nutella in the center.
  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the surface of the cookies are lightly cracked. Cool on the baking sheets

These are delicious, but a tad on the sweet side so make sure you have some milk or coffee to wash it downπŸ™‚ I think I might try making nutella on my own, seeing as I have an unhealthy addiction to it. I’ll let you know how it goes!

Hugs and puppies!
