“I know, I know, there are tons of chocolate chip cookies on this site, but this one is the first that came out perfect and bakery-style like for me so I really think it deserves to be posted. I hope you agree with me! :)”
12 big cookies

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 50 g butter, softened
  • 25 g nutella (or other chocolate spread, e.g. one with coffee)
  • 140 g sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 150 g flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 18 teaspoon ground vanilla bean
  • 75 g white chocolate chunks
  • 75 g milk chocolate pieces


  1. In a big bowl cream butter, nutella and sugar for about 5 minutes. Add the egg and beat it inches.
  2. In a second bowl combine baking powder, flour and vanilla bean. Add this to the wet mixture and mix to combine.
  3. Fold in both types of chocolate chunks.
  4. Use your hands to form large round heaps of dough (1 1/2 tbs dough per cookie). Flatten slightly on the baking sheet. These will spread, so leave enough room between them.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven at 180°C/350°F for about 15 minutes. Take them out when theyre still a bit soft, theyll crisp up while cooling.
  6. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
