I’m always terrible about wanting to bake things but not having all the ingredients. Imagine my surprise when I found this recipe for 5 ingredient cookies! I was a little unsure at first but after making them I think I might have to live by these cookies. Not only were they so easy to make, they were so good! I got the original recipe here:

Recently there’s been a lot of snow here in Virginia. And I’ve gone a little stir crazy. Along with cleaning and watching a West Wing marathon I decided it was cookie making time! I found the recipe for these nutella lava cookies on pinterest and it was love at first sight. These were amazing right out of the oven! They were a little tiresome to make, the rolling got old quick but they were so worth it! Give them a try!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1¼ cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups large semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • nutella for filling

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  3. Cream the butter and sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Blend in the eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl as needed.
  5. Mix in the cocoa powder at low speed until well blended.
  6. Add the flour, salt and baking powder to the bowl and mix on low speed just until incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  7. Scoop up about 2 tablespoons of dough and roll into a ball. Flatten the ball in the palm of your hand and put in about 1/2 tbsp of nutella in the middle of the dough. Then wrap the edges around to form a ball and to cover the nutella completely. Place on the prepared baking sheets, and repeat process, placing balls about 2 inches apart. Bake about 13-16 minutes, until cookies are cooked and slide easily off of parchment paper. Serve while warm.
