Chocolate Mocha and Nutella Cookies

Chocolate Mocha Nutella Cookies: so rich and delicious you will want more! #nutella #mocha @shugarysweets

My kids are off to school.

 But before they headed off I made some cookies.
 I found this Jif Mocha Cappuccino Hazelnut Spread in the grocery stores, so I thought it would be perfect for this recipe. Combining the kids love of hazelnut spread with my love of coffee, it’s a delicious match. 
After baking up these cookies, the first question (always) in my house was “what kind are they?” 
(they may appear like chocolate cookies with chocolate chips, but my kids know better)

I think they were pleasantly surpised these cookies didn’t taste like coffee. Although, I thought there was a definite hint of cappuccino flavor!

    Well, now I want cookies for breakfast for sure. And since these have coffee in them, I can just skip the coffee and have 2 cookies instead right??? I love how puffy and chewy they look.

      I say splurge a little, have coffee and two cookies!

    Haha “but they know better.” That’s totally the situation at my house! The average looking “chocolate chip cookie” is NEVER average :) they’re always anticipating everything to have some unexpected surprise or twist and these cookies definitely do! I need to find that spread ASAP. Between your recipe and Jocelyn’s, I’m dying over here!

    i’ve seen a lot of this jif mocha pb spread over the blogworld! I should hop on the bandwagon. Your cookies look perfect! I’ve never used shortening in a cookie recipe before, but I’m heard some good things.

    These look so good! But do you have to use Crisco? Can you use butter?

    • posted Aug 30, 2012 at 3:12 pm

      You can use all butter, but the texture will be slightly different. Crisco helps it stay crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside.

      I might have to break down and buy some then. It’s so weird but I have such a negative association with Crisco. I’ve gotten by so far with never using it. But these cookies and your oatmeal cream pie ones are too tempting.

      And PS your crockpot carnitas are awesome!

      Glad you like the carnitas, one of our favs around here…
      As for the crisco, it just helps with the texture. I know some people are wary about using shortening. I guess I just feel, for me personally, everything in moderation! If I’m going to splurge on a cookie, it better be one heck of a delicious tasting cookie :)

    The recipe looks great! I have a questions though. The ingredients call for baking powder but the directions say add baking soda. Which is it?

    • posted Dec 10, 2014 at 7:01 pm

      I used baking powder, just fixed it! Thank you! Enjoy :)
