Chewy Peanut Butter-Nutella Swirl Cookies

Chewy Peanut Butter-Nutella Swirl Cookies | The Blonde Buckeye

When you make cookie dough one day, & bake them another, it seems like a lot less work for some reason.  Also it seems like your cookies turn out better (chewier & softer & just yummier).  Or maybe it’s just me…  Either way, these cookies were awesome.  Super soft, super chewy & delicious!  I brought them to my office & they vanished like a white rabbit in a hat.  Highly recommended!

    Is that 1/2 CUP Nutella or 1/2 a JAR Nutella?! Thanks! They look so good, I can’t wait to try them!

  3. Pretty nice post. I simply stumbled upon your weblog and
    wished to mention that I have really enjoyed surfing around
    your weblog posts. In any case I will be subscribing for
    your rss feed and I am hoping you write again very soon!

  4. I was wondering if you have tried to make these using margarine instead of butter? Does that influence the chewiness?

    In any case, they look fantastic and I will definitely be trying them!

    • Hi Val, unfortunately I haven’t tried them with margarine, so I can’t say either way – let me know if you do though!!
