My family has long shared germs as we pass the Nutella jar around and we each eat it with a spoon with the milk bottle nearby.
And I love the smell of Nutella when you open up the jar. It’s heaven.
These bars are just basic vanilla cookie dough with swirls of Nutella through them. Look at how chewy they look.
Match made in heaven.
NUTELLA COOKIE BARS
Adapted from Milk and Cookies.
220g unsalted butter, softened (1 cup)
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups plain flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 jar Nutella (you won’t need the whole thing)
Preheat the oven to 180 C and line a 9 x 13 inch tray with baking paper.
Beat the butter and sugars together until light and creamy. Add the egg, egg yolk and vanilla and mix well.
On a low speed, mix in the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt until just incorporated.
Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared tray.
Dollop 6-8 tablespoons of Nutella over the cookie base. Use a spoon or a metal skewer to spread it and swirl it around and into the cookie.
Bake for 18-20 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before cutting. Makes 20 bars.
