FAQs

Can I use peanut butter in this recipe?

You can substitute peanut butter instead of Nutella in this recipe if you prefer. I also recommend this easy Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe.

It is a chocolate spread made with hazelnut. This Italian spread is rich and creamy. You can use other brands of chocolate-hazelnut spread but I prefer Nutella brand.

Yes, the cookies are easy to make in advance. Prepare the dough as normal. Cover and refrigerate until you are ready to make the cookies. Then scoop and bake.

Is this recipe freezer friendly?

This recipe is easy to freeze. You can freeze the dough and then thaw and bake.

Another option is to freeze the baked cookies. Place inside a freezer container and separate the cookies with parchment paper.
Thaw in the fridge overnight when ready to use.
