Nutella Monster Cookies

Monster Cookies.
If I could sum up this blog in 2012 with one dessert, it would be Monster Cookies.
I posted the recipe for the classic cookie in December last year– it’s our family’s favorite Christmas time cookie. It wasn’t a big deal. Most people have the recipe. Mostly I just wanted it on my blog for easy personal access.
The Monster Cookie Dough Dip happened in January.
It was sort of an accident. I almost didn’t post it (the pictures are hideous).
 And that’s when the Monster Cookie thing got out of control.
People liked the dip. A lot.
And I was addicted to seeing people say they liked the dip.
Really addicted.

So I made Red Velvet Monster Cookies.
And Monster Cookie Dough Mousse Pie.
And Monster Cookie Dough Truffles.
And Monster Cookie Dough Cupcakes.
And Monster Cookie Magic Bars.
It’s been quite the peanut butter and M&M sugar rush around here.
I’ve been dying to try Monster Cookies with Nutella, but I felt like the Crazy Monster Cookie Lady.
So I’ve been trying to take a break.
From the Monster Cookies.
Which was, clearly, some kind of a joke.
So I’m back with another Monster Cookie recipe :)
And, I must say, it’s my favorite so far.
I’ll be hard pressed to ever go back to peanut butter again!
Bold words, I know… but I tell no lies here.

Tips:

  • Note the adjusted temperature and time from the classic monster cookie recipe. My first batch burned pretty easily– but after the adjustments, they were just fine.
  • I thought it helped to have the dough chilled a little bit.

      Oh no! The dough is falling apart or post-baking? Did you let them cool ALL the way on the baking sheet before you tried to move them?

    hey i cant have oats *allergy* can you give me a good substitute for oats because im afraid to pick the wrong thing

      Sorry bud! There’s no sub that would work here since oats are pretty much the point of the cookie :( However, on the flip side, I have LOTS of really yummy cookie recipes to choose from that do NOT involve oats :) http://www.somethingswanky.com/category/cookies/

    The nutella is replacing the peanut butter, if im correct. Maybe the difference in consistency with the two ingredients causes the need for these cookies to cool completely on the baking sheet before moving them. I agree with having a chilled dough kept in the fridge between baking batches. Having 2 baking sheets to use would allow you to bake a batch while cooling the other batch on a baking sheet. Also, what if I were to use part peanut butter and part nutella..how would that work out?

      I think part peanut butter and part nutella would be delicious!! Let me know if you try it :)
