Even though I am a sweet person, there is something to be said for a quality sweet and salty combo. These cookies are proof. Soft chocolate chip cookies loaded with salty pretzel bits and stuffed with Nutella. I don't know about you...but in my book that is pretty close to perfection.
I may be a little biased though because I have a sick obsession with Nutella. When I studied abroad in Italy, Nutella had not made its way over to the United States yet. And let's just say I took FULL advantage of having unlimited access to the stuff. I was eating so much of it, my teacher actually called me Nutella Girl.
Now that could be due to the fact that he was old, crazy and just couldn't remember my name, but that is here nor there. The important thing to note is that Nutella has a special place in my heart.
So special, that when my EXTRA LARGE jar of Nutella got confiscated at the airport on my way home...I cried. Seriously...I actually cried. It was very upsetting. And what kind of idiot considers an unopened jar of Nutella a threatening liquid?! This very mean man in the Rome airport. That's who.
Luckily, people in the United States finally realized they were missing out on true greatness. So now, Nutella is available in almost every grocery store. And now you can stuff the gooey goodness in these perfect sweet and salty cookies!
*Makes about 14 cookies
Does it make a Difference if I take the pretzels out?
