Chocolate Peanut Butter Nutella Oreo Cookies

Yield: 2 dozen cookies.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 heaping cup Nutella
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons brewed coffee, espresso, or water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 12 Oreo cookies, lightly crushed

Directions:

  1. Add peanut butter, Nutella, egg, and sugars to the workbowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat for 2 minutes on medium-high speed to cream. Stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl if needed.
  2. Then add cocoa powder, coffee, vanilla, and baking soda and beat for 1-2 minutes on medium-high speed until the ingredients are well combined. Add the crushed Oreo pieces and stir to combine. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Using a medium (1.5 tbsp) cookie scoop, drop dough onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, about 2 inches apart. Flatten the dough slightly.
  4. Bake at 350 for 8 minutes. They firm up more as they cool; don’t overbake which is easy to do with dark-colored cookies. Store in an airtight container at room temperature on in the refrigerator for up to one week, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
