You need the following ingredients to make these:
|Nutella chocolate spread||125 g|
|Plain flour||200 g|
Milk chocolate drops or chocolates broken into small pieces
|Baking powder||1/2 tsp|
|Cocoa powder||10g or 2tbsp|
- Preheat the oven to 180 C / 350 F/ Gas mark 4)
- Mix sugar butter. Beat together using an electric hand mixer for 2mins (Do not beat too much as the cookies will not become crunchy)
- Add the egg and beat for 1 min
- Add Nutella spread, vanilla and beat for 2 mins
- Stir in the chocolate pieces
- Mix baking powder, plain flour, cocoa powder and salt. Sieve onto the mixture
- Now, gently fold everything together using a rubber spatula
- Spread a baking parchment paper on a baking tray. Scoop a tablespoonful of the chocolate mixture and place on the tray. Continue with the rest of the mixture leaving enough space for them to spread as they bake
- Prepare two trays if space is not enough
- Place the tray in the bottom of the oven and bake exactly 20 mins (remember to set the timer)
- Take the tray straight out of the oven after 20 mins and let the cookies cool on the tray itself. Do not take the cookies out of the tray until they are completely cooled. The heat of the tray will make the cookies become crunchy
- If the tray has no room for all the cookie batter, spread them on another tray and bake separately
- Most importantly, once the cookies are out of the oven, let them fully cool off on the tray itself. This is the trick to make them crispy and crunchy. Do not worry if you notice they are still soggy when you take them out of the oven because they will get crispy with the heat of the tray.
- Store in an air-tight jar. They will stay crispy up to 5 days
