Nutella Cookie Bars

Let's take a break from pumpkin for a moment to enjoy a little Nutella. :) Oh, and you thought you'd be getting something that wasn't sweet!!! Do you not know me at all? I should change the name of my blog to something sweet since I am ALWAYS posting desserts and baked goods. What can I say? I'm a baker at heart.

These cookie bars were FANTASTIC! They were best after sitting for a while, though. So, if you are like me and you burn your tongue on food right out of the oven, try to control the urge and wait to eat these. They will not disappoint. Heavenly is what they are!!!

Nutella Cookie Bars
Recipe from Life, Lightly Salted

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup Nutella
2 cups white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.

Cream sugars and the butter in large bowl until smooth and light in color. Add the eggs one at a time. Add vanilla extract and Nutella.

Add the flour mixture on low speed 1/3 at a time until just mixed. Fold in chocolate chips.

Spread batter into an ungreased 9x9 baking pan.

Bake for 35 minutes.

We should rename you Nutella Pumpkin. Or Pumpkin Nutella. Either combination works - and I hope you realize that I am just messing with you.

I just bookmarked the nutella bars - but do you think I could leave out the white chocolate and use regular chocolate? I'm sure it wouldn't affect the outcome.

I am a nutella lover! I can't wait to try these bars. Look so good!

Cristine said...

Megan- I'm sure regular chocolate would work wonderfully. Mmmm... now I think I need to make them again! :)

Wow Cristine, those look fabulous! Thank you for sharing the recipe (and I think I have everything on hand to make them.) Yippee! :)

KNOCK! KNOCK! Hey Cristine! I am at your front door. Let me in and give me some of those cookies and no one will get hurt!

Reeni said...

They look wonderful! I know they taste good because of the Nutella. I wish I could make these but I can't be trusted with Nutella in the house. I like to eat it with a spoon, all of it at once!

Bridget said...

Oh MY!!! These look heavenly and dangerous! These are a "must make"...thank you for the recipe!

Megan said...

I cant keep Nutella in the house either because of my 13 year old. maybe I'll buy a jar and hide it so I can surprise her with these!

Oh, I'll have to make these for my daughter (maybe even cookie exchange?) - she loves all things Nutella!

HoneyB said...

Yum! Well I'm with you with Nutella Cristine! Hmm, I'm with you with pumpkin too!

I just made these, and they are obscenely good. I used regular chocolate chips and they made the bars super chocolatey and rich. They took about 55 minutes to bake, but it could just be my oven. Thanks for sharing the fantastic recipe!
