5 Drool-worthy Nutella Recipes

by Lottie Huckle

published on 31 January 2017

We need very little persuasion to dig out our jar of Nutella from the cupboard. And impossible though it may seem, we’ve got 6 recipes for you that are even more delicious that simply eating the stuff with a spoon straight from the jar. Although they do require just a jot more patience… 

Nutella Cookies | Easy Baking

Nutella Cookies from Primrose Bakery Everyday by Martha Swift

This recipe sandwiches a dollop of your favourite chocolate spread between two rich, soft chocolate cookies. The whole thing is baked until the cookies are crisp on the outside but still oozing with Nutella on the inside. They’re thoroughly addictive, so beware of baking a batch!
