Soft and chewy Nutella Cookies topped with hazelnut spread M&Ms. A fun, delicious Nutella cookie recipe ready in about 20 minutes!
Are you a Nutella lover?
These Nutella cookies are so good. Like… lick-the-Nutella-off-the-spoon good.
Just think, peanut butter cookie texture meets Nutella chocolate-y goodness. These Nutella cookies have the same delicious, soft, chewy texture as a classic peanut butter cookie but are full of rich Nutella flavor.
To top it off I added some Hazelnut Spread M&Ms for a festive Valentine’s touch. They taste even better than they look!

HOW DO I MAKE NUTELLA COOKIES?
Here’s a little video I made to show you how easy this recipe is to make!
There’s no tricks or secrets here. These Nutella cookies are easy to make. You probably already have the ingredients in your pantry.
You will need:
- sugar and brown sugar
- Nutella (of course)
- an egg
- baking soda
- Hazelnut Spread m&ms
You will start by creaming the fats and sugar together. Then add the egg and vanilla.
After that, the dry ingredients go in.
Once mixed, form into balls and roll in sugar.
Bake um’ up most of the way then add the m&ms. Pop them back in the oven for just a minute or two and they’re done.

WHERE CAN I BUY HAZELNUT SPREAD M&MS…
I found these Nutella gems in my local grocery store. If you can’t find them in your regular grocery store, you can find them online HERE.
If you don’t want to use hazelnut spread m&ms you can also use regular m&ms or omit them altogether.
When I saw these m&ms last week in the seasonal candy aisle, I had to try them. Being a huge Nutella fan, I’m glad I did. These cookies turned out even better than I had imagined.
