I didn’t really know how to get around the longest post title ever. But listen, anyone with a Pinterest account has probably seen this pin in one of its many incarnations: the Nutella-Stuffed Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt.
Like many of Pinterest’s crazier dessert recipes, I pinned it and promptly forgot about it because, seriously, who can actually cook those recipes without the guilt and fear of what it will do to your thighs?
(If you read that sentence and said, “ME!” then I truly, truly envy you. Now go away before you make me hate myself.)
I don’t know what came over me in Target one day (probably the same thing that comes over me every time I’m in Target and make an impulse purchase), but I saw Nutella and I remembered that one Nutella-stuffed cookie recipe I pinned way back when, and suddenly, I had to make them. I looked up the recipe right there in the Nutella aisle and a few hours later, Aaron was crying tears of happiness and mumbling “Mmmsooogoodneedmmmoremmmilk.” Or something like that.
A recipe for this cookie has been posted on plenty of blogs, but I chose this recipe from Ambitious Kitchen. I have no idea if it was the original, but it was excellent! The only change I made to her directions was putting the Nutella jar in the freezer for a couple of hours before assembling the cookies. It was much easier to scoop out a teaspoon and place in the dough when it was frozen.
So go on, already. Just do it. If you’re fearful of the calorie count, you absolutely should be. So just take them to work tomorrow and let your coworkers
hate themselves fawn over your amazing cookie baking skills.
