Happy Easter everyone! I hope you've already found yourself in a full fledged chocolate induced coma on the sofa, but if not I've got a super easy recipe thats guaranteed to get you there! Usually I'd stick to a healthier kind of treat (see my post on some good-for-you alternatives here) but as we find ourselves quite literally surrounded by chocolate, what better time to indulge than now!
Nutella will always be a life long love of mine and what better way to spice up a simple chocolate chip cookie recipe than by adding a generous scoop of liquid brown gold in the centre. The ingredients are listed below and it's pretty much a case of throwing everything together in a bowl, creating a little Nutella parcel to achieve that gooey surprise inside and baking for 10-15 minutes at 180°c.
Last week I roped Suzie in to help me whisk up a batch if you want to see the whole process in action, plus the ensuing hilarity that generally happens when we get together. We also filmed a Q&A on Suzie's channel which makes for perfect viewing while you're waiting for your cookies to bake!
