Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies. I can’t claim them to be my idea. In all actuality, I made them at the request of Little Buddy.

You see, even though we’ve had Nutella in our house for years, he hasn’t really “fallen in love” with it until this past week at camp. In preparation for his week away from home, I packed little single serve packets of his favorite peanut butter into his camp trunk and, on a whim, I tossed in one of the single serving packs of Nutella that I saw in the grocery store.

Since he’s been home, it really has been the only food item that he’s requested.

“Mama, are you going to the store today? If you do, will you get me some more Nutella?”

“Mama, in the morning, I just want Nutella toast for breakfast. Okay?”

“Mama, can we make Nutella sandwiches for lunch today?”

and the list goes on…

Finally, yesterday afternoon, with his big eyes looking at me pleadingly and a slight curve to his lip with his smirky smile, he asked me if I could make him some Nutella cookies.

When I said sure, he followed it with…

“but not just any ol’ Nutella cookies. Can you make them with chocolate chips? And a little bit chewy? And Mama, can you make them taste really, really good?”

My reply?

Well, like any good Mama, I said, ” Of course, but I bet I’ll need your help to make them just like you want them.”

And you know what? These are now our favorite cookies in our house.

It sure is amazing what comes out of such sweet requests.

Recipe Review


  1. Can’t wait to try these. My niece and I have tea at a local teashoppe and they have her loving Nutella. They cut up granny smith apples and present them like a rose, and put nutella in a ramekin for dipping. She will loves it, so I know this will be a major hit! Thank you.

  2. Robyn, I don’t see chocolate chips on the list of ingredients. Am I missing something?

    Love your site!

  3. You and your son are both genius! These cookies look amazing and I like the little bit of expresso in them. YUM!

  4. Your son has really specific taste in cookies. 😉 He must have a food blogger for a mom. These sound amazing.

    1. That’s so funny you say that, Renee. The other night at supper he started naming the ingredients in the dish from taste. It was a super proud moment for me. Then, I asked him his favorite ice cream and he said, “uhhh, vanilla, I guess.” I just knew he was going to say something elaborate like vanilla with caramel fudge and espresso swirl and macadamia nuts or something like that. 🙂
