Suffice it to say...these are little bites of rich, flavorful, amazinggg cookies. The kind of cookies that are perfect to binge-ing on while you watch Magic Mike XXL (Don't act like you haven't seen it! Fun fact--My mom and her friends hated it and said the "dancing" was way better in the first one. Like...what? I'm like "Mom...it's no worse than the first one. You're crazy." But I digress.) They're the kind of cookies that you want to give to your friends and family so they'll love you forever and be impressed with your mad cookie skills.
Also...Santa would totally love 'em. Just saying.
At Thanksgiving, Michael's aunt was complaining that I hadn't shared a cookie recipe in too long. Well, Cindy, this one's for you! I told you I had one coming!!
In all fairness, though, I get disappointed when I go awhile without cookies too.
Don't we all?
Chocolate Peanut Butter Nutella Oreo Cookies
From Kevin and Amanda
Makes about 24 cookies.
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 heaping cup Nutella
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp. brewed coffee, espresso, or water
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 12 Oreo cookies (or other chocolate sandwich cookie), lightly crushed
- In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment (you can also use a hand mixer) cream together peanut butter, nutella, egg, and sugars on medium-high speed for about 2 minutes.
- Beat in cocoa powder, coffee (or water), vanilla, and baking soda on medium speed until fully incorporated.
- Stir in the crushed Oreos.
- Cover bowl and chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
- Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
- Using a medium cookie scoop (about 1.5 tbsp.) place balls of cookie dough about 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet. Press down the tops of each dough ball slightly.
- Bake for 8 minutes-do not overbake! They'll firm up as they cool. Let sit on baking sheet to cool for 5-10 minutes.
- Serve! Store leftover cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days (best within the first 2 days of baking, though) or freeze for up to 3 months.
How can so much tastiness be inside one cookie??!
