Day 1: Nutella Cherry Chocolate Cookies
I made these cookies after returning from our trip to Traverse City, Michigan. I was inspired by everything cherry and these babies delivered.
They're not ooey gooey, more of a cakey consistency but that makes them perfect for baking and sending to loved ones. Of course you could always add more Nutella if you wanted more goo but that'll cost ya a few more calories. Ready to get moving? Here's what you'll need.
Nutella Cherry Chocolate Cookies
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 egg whites
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup all purpose flour
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
1/3 cup dried tart cherries, diced into small pieces
1/4 cup nutella
Preheat oven to 375.
Grab your butter...
and your brown sugar...
and cream them until fluffy.
Add your vanilla and egg whites.
Give 'em a mix.
Time to add the rest of the ingredients!
Get the cherries and cut them into smaller pieces before adding them to the batter.
Mix it up!
Grab your little cookie scooper or teaspoon...
drop onto Silpat or non stick cookie sheet.
Bake 8 - 10 minutes depending on your preference for the texture. A little less for chewy, a little more for crispy and cakey.
Let them cool on a rack for 3-5 minutes.
Chocolate cherry goodness awaits!
