Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies from Italy is my chosen dish for N. My initial choice was Neujahrspretzel which is a baked huge pretzel. I didn’t want to be so predictable by picking something with Nutella, however, after so many bakes both as cakes and bread, I realized that my boys were not touching it even and it fell on Konda and Hubby dear to complete the dishes. I know they didn’t complain and enjoyed them much. Still, I wanted my boys to be part of this.
Hence I decided to pick up something with chocolate will make sure they willing indulge in this. I was so busy the weekend that I couldn’t plan out the dishes what I have for this week. So from today, it is going to be bake as you post mode and I know my posts are going to be so delayed.
I was almost about to make a small batch of these cookies, then decided that with the love Nutella gets at home, it’s not fair that I reduce the cookies number. These were so sinful and addictive that even Hubby dear, who is not a great fan of chocolate, said these are too good and if by chance our boys won’t touch this, he will gladly enjoy! I said there will never be that case and I kept a separate box for him.
Nutella is a brand of sweetened hazelnut cocoa spread manufactured by the Italian company Ferrero. This chocolate spread was first introduced in 1964 under this name, though this seems to have been available since early times. For the sake of attributing a brand and a dish to the native, I have done, as Nutella has been part of my pantry for a long time and I have even made a homemade Nutella, that was super hit with my kids.
This week is mostly going to be cookies and I want to select dishes that are easy to bake after I reach home. So I hope you all enjoy these cookies show!
