For those of you who have not tried nutella, you are crazy and missing out on one of the best things ever made. I love having a piece of peanut butter toast topped with nutella or dipping pretzels in it. It is a chocolate hazelnut spread that is just divine! I saw this recipe and knew I just HAD to make them! These are pretty chewy so if you don't like chewy cookies, perhaps they are not for you. If you cook them a little too long they become crunchy so be careful, it happens quickly!

Since finally living alone I have been able to destroy the kitchen with no guilt and bake and cook even more so I have plenty of posts coming up...I am going to try my best to post them but I will be rather busy. Tomorrow morning I am heading up to Minnesota to see my dad, him and his side of the family live up there and I miss them tons. We're going to eat good German food and celebrate my graduation :) The following week, I start up classes again...so this shall be a challenge, but I can do it...
