Do you ever have those days where you just need chocolate? Like can’t do anything until you get your chocolate? I’m sure it’s normal for most people to have these days, but when I have these days it’s weird.
If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile now you know I really don’t like chocolate all that much. I’m more of a vanilla kind of girl. But every once in awhile I find myself jonesing (is that a legit word?) for some chocolate. Side note: just googled jonesing and Urban Dictionary says it’s legit.
So when I found myself in desperate need of some chocolate I knew exactly what to do. Nutella cookies. You know how I say bacon makes everything better? Nutella makes everything better as well. Especially when there is also some peanut butter involved.
These cookies are almost brownie-like in quality and extremely moist. What’s even better is that they seriously take less than 15 minutes from start to finish. Winning? I think so.
