So, last night my husband got up to take a shower, and on his way upstairs, he says "have something yummy waiting for me." Weighing my options over what he meant by this, I finally trudged my way to the kitchen, hoping (and knowing it wasn't) cookies were what he had in mind ;)
I again am in serious need of a trip to the grocery store, so I was trying to figure out something to make with what I had on hand. Something that didn't require baking powder was on the top of my list, and after googling for a few minutes, I came across Nutella cookies!! If you've never heard of it, Nutella is an amazing chocolate-hazelnut spread, and it is the epitome of decadence! Using the Nutella made these some super chocolately triple chocolate cookies, and we loved them! They were very moist and cakey, and actually were best described as "brownie cookies." While the hubs wasn't exactly looking for cookies last night, that didn't keep him from eating his fair share of cookies!
