Not all cookies are worth their weight in gold. Commercially prepared Chips Ahoy! Cookies do not even compare to a homemade, hot version of the real thing. When I am forfeiting my daily calories for a warm cookie, I want it to be pretty darn good.
With two co-workers’ birthdays last week, I put a lot of thought into what kind of cookies to bring in. Everyone devoured the Pillsbury Double-Delight Peanut Butter Cookies I made, and this got me thinking that a chocolate chip version would be worth its weight in gold.
Double-Delight Chocolate Chip Cookies
¼ cup granulated sugar
¼ cup pecans, finely chopped
½ cup Nutella Hazelnut Spread
½ cup powdered sugar
1 roll Pillsbury refrigerated chocolate chip cookies
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, combine sugar and pecans. Set aside.
2. Mix together Nutella and powdered sugar. Form into 24 (1-inch) balls.
3. Divide roll of cookie dough into 24 flat pieces. Wrap dough completely around Nutella balls.
4. Roll cookie dough balls in the pecan mixture.
5. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
My favorite part is a toss up between the sugar nut topping and the creamy chocolate filling.
The dusting on top lends the cookie the perfect amount of saltiness to make eating it worth every bite.
Do not waste your time and calories on boring cookies when these can be made in under 20 minutes, and they complement milk quite nicely.
