White Chocolate Chip Hazelnut Cookies: Made With Nutella!

I felt like making something tried and true recently. But wanted to add a twist to it. Sort of the same way I felt when I made my brown sugar snickerdoodles! I thought a good chocolate chip cookie recipe would be just what I was looking for, since I usually have most of the ingredients on hand and it would be easy to experiment with.

What I dreamed up were white chocolate chip hazelnut cookies with Nutella!

Hazelnuts and white chocolate chips

Well, they came out a little flat for my liking. Although they stayed chewy, as I like them. So if you make them, just make sure to leave plenty of space between each cookie when dropped on your cookie sheet!
