Chocolate Nutella Cookies

Chewy Chocolate Cookies!

Every Christmas Eve, children all around the world set out plates of cookies with a glass of milk for Santa. One year, I let my kids look through recipes and choose new cookies to bake. Our oldest son, Dillon, chose to make this wonderful chocolate cookie that turned out to be Santa’s favorite! It is a chewy cookie, loaded with chocolate flavor and yet not too rich. I dare you to stop at just one!
