If you love Nutella like I love Nutella, then you'll love the cookie recipe
I'm sharing today!! You're probably familiar with the popular Nutella No-
Bake cookies. I wanted to do something a little different, so I created
some Nutella Thumbprint Cookies and filled them with more Nutella!!

the minute that I put one in my mouth, I was sold!! These are so good
and so easy and I'm sure you'll love them!! Let me show you how I
The first part of the recipe is done on the stovetop. You combine sugar,
cocoa, milk & butter, bring to a boil, add the rest of the ingredients and
your done!!! I used my medium cookie scoop to transfer the mixture
to my baking pan, then I let the cookies cool for a few minutes. Next
I made an indentation in the cookies with my finger and piped some
Nutella (using your tip of choice) into it. You can also just use a spoon!
I finished the cookies with some little sugar flowers that I bought
online!! So cute!!
How easy is that?! If you're not into the sugar flowers, you
could sprinkle some chopped Hazelnuts on top instead!
