Baking Cookies Made Easy, Continued

Today I’m sharing an incredibly easy, delicious recipe that will leave your whole family asking for more.

Nutella Cake Mix Cookies

This recipe is adapted from my recipe for peanut butter cookies, originally posted here. Commenter Marlyn asked if one could replace the peanut butter in that recipe with Nutella, and I thought, why not? I started experimenting, and the results were even better than expected!

These cookies are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside, and using yellow cake mix lets the flavor of the Nutella shine through. These cookies have a slightly nutty and mildly chocolaty taste that is sure to be a hit!

4 Ingredient Nutella Cookies

Nutella Cake Mix Cookies
1 package yellow cake mix
½ cup canola or vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 cup Nutella

Combine all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir until a smooth dough forms. Drop tablespoon-sized balls of dough onto a cookie sheet, leaving at least 2 inches between cookies on all sides (they will spread!) Bake the cookies at 350 degrees for 9-10 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 3-5 minutes before moving them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Nutella Cookies

This recipe makes big, thin cookies, so make sure to leave plenty of room on your baking sheet. The cookies will look big and puffy when they come out of the oven, but will flatten out once they have cooled a little.

This recipe makes a big batch, so be sure to share!
