Soft and Chewy Nutella White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies so soft that they literally melt in your mouth is the only way I want cookies.
These cookies made with Nutella and two kinds of chocolate chips more than fit the bill.
I made them because I wanted chocolate cookies, but not too chocolaty. Picky much?
Rather than adding cocoa powder to the dough, the chocolate flavor comes entirely from Nutella. It also sweetens the dough and helps the cookies stay super soft and moist.
Another trick that helps these cookies turn out so soft and tender is adding cornstarch to the dough.
Before I became totally enamored with pudding cookies (pudding mix is largely cornstarch and sugar), I had a two year run of adding cornstarch to almost all my cookies because it helps them turn out softbatch-style soft, and they stay soft for days.
It totally delivers here and between the moisture in the brown sugar, Nutella, and cornstarch, the cookies just fall apart at their chocolate-chip loaded seams. They’re that soft.
They’re also stuffed full with both white and semi-sweet chocolate chips. I adore the zingy sweetness of white chocolate, but you can use all semi-sweet chips, or mix and match with milk and semi-sweet chocolate chips.
I love the way the white chocolate chips look embedded within the dark dough. The contrast of the white and dark is so eye-catching, especially when the chips get soft and melty.
The cookies are sweet, rich, decadent, dense, and wonderfully thick. For cookies this thick, your must plan ahead and chill the dough.
Soft, warm dough straight from the mixing bowl that contains softened butter and runny Nutella will never bake up into thick, puffy cookies. And if you use a cookie scoop and bake on a Silpat, even better. All these little cookie baking tricks do add up to help you achieve bakery-style cookies at home.
We loved these cookies and although the batch size makes just 11 cookies, you can make the dough in advance and keep it in the fridge (5 days) or freezer (6 months) until you’re ready to bake.
Every soft, juicy, chip-loaded bite is packed with big flavors and they all complement each other so well.
I promise these will disappear fast.
