Nutella-Peanut Butter Cookies

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup crisp rice cereal
3/4 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup sem-sweet or dark chocolate chips
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup Nutella

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat cookie sheets with cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together butter and brown sugar until creamy - about 1 minute. Beat in egg, baking soda, salt and vanilla until combined. Beat in cereal, oats and chocolate chips until combined. Beat in flour until just combined.

Divide half of the dough into an additional large bowl. Beat peanut butter into one bowl of dough until combined. Beat Nutella into other bowl of dough until combined.

Line up doughs, side-by-side, on plastic wrap. Wrap in plastic wrap and roll into an even log. Unwrap plastic wrap and slice dough into rounds, 1/2-inch thick. Place dough slices on cookie sheets, spacing about an inch apart. Bake 11-12 minutes or until firm and slightly crisp. Cool 2 minutes before trasferring cookies to wire racks to cool completely.

Makes 2 dozen cookies

  3. these cookies are heaven/hell cookies for me! (nutella is my fav thing ever, peanutbutter= highly allergic to) I'll have to make them without the PB! They look sooo good, albeit slightly scary/deathly, lol.

  5. The cookies look awesome! I just finished reading a book called "confections of a closet master baker", I think you would love it! Let me know if you ever give it a try.

  6. I made a peach pie recently. Very time consuming and I would not recommend it for labor day!

    I don't know what internet browser you use, but I have issues commenting on blogger when I'm using internet explorer on a PC...when I'm on my Mac using either Safari or Firefox it works fine though. Blogger is kind of buggy...if I wasn't intimidated by Wordpress I'd switch.

    These cookies look great - I love Nutella!!

  9. I had the same problem with blogger and I simply resolve it by switching for Firefox or Google Chrome instead of Explorer. You should try it! These cookies really looks good!

  10. Visually, these look just awesome! I love the 2 tone look. I bet that they would taste just awesome too! Nutella is one of my new favourites at the moment :)

  11. PERFECT cookies!

    Don't worry about lack of commenting - I'm guilty of the same thing. I love love LOVE your site, you know that. You rock :)

  12. Very cool how you sliced and put them together. I have seen half and half cookies before and kept meaning to try it out myself. Yours look perfect with a great combination.

  13. Em,
    Your comment problem could have to do with your browser. IE was causing me tons of headaches. I switched to Firefox, which helped a little, but was kind of annoying. Now I use Google Chrome and I bet that might solve the comment hassles you're having.

    These cookies are a brilliant idea. I might actually make them as separate cookies too. Ooh, and wouldn't they be good used in ice cream sandwiches...with some coffee or caramel OR PEANUT BUTTER(!!!) ice cream?

  14. You basically combined my two addictions in this world into one cookie. My poor waistline.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Now these look like my type of cookie...Nutella is my food addiction right now...I eat it at least once a day on something, or sometimes just by the spoonful. You won't tell anyone will you?

  16. This is pretty much one of the coolest cookie recipes I've seen in a long time. And I collect cookie recipes. Thanks for sharing it!

  17. Wow, what a clever idea!

  18. Very clever idea. Anything with Nutella is always good. I can never stay away from the stuff.

    I baked two batches of pudding cookies. One is made with vanilla pudding and chocolate chips and one is made with banana pudding and pb chips. I brought half of them to work and then I froze the other half to take to a friend's barbecue on Monday. Other than that my weekend is just about me and the horsies. Oh yeah, my BIL and his family are in town for the weekend. They don't have much time to socialize with Mom and only brother! We are having dinner together on Sunday night though.

  25. genious. you've combined like 5 of my favorite things: nutella, PB, oats, cereal, and chocolate chips. amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  26. How is this not the most popular flavor combo ever? Genius. Just love it. And they look so pretty!

  27. We all get into funks where we get behind in commenting. I go through them every couple of months. I try to stay on top of it...but it just happens.

    Now. Onto these amazing cookies! They have my new favorite foods. Nutella and Peanut Butter...I'm totally in!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh, those look good. Like I need to make them soon good!

    ReplyDelete
  29. it's the updated black and white cookie--excellent!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Nutella and pb cookies > black and white cookies. Actually I've never had a black and white cookie, but NUtella always wins. Always

  31. I have the same commenting problem. I read somewhere that when you log into Blogger, if you don't click "stay signed in" that helps. Personally, I have to switch to Internet Explorer, sign out, then sign in that way to comment!!

    Urg. Anyway, I'm sorry about Giada. :( These cookies look great.

  35. Thanks everyone!

    Casey, I'll have to check that out. Thank you!

    Maggie + everyone else, I guess that's what I need to do. Switch my browser. Sigh. I like IE.

    Sue, I did that! With vanilla ice cream! Yum.

    BF, :) I love when you comments! And thank you! I'm flattered. You have nice lege too.

  36. With peanut butter and Nutella how can these NOT be amazing?

    ReplyDelete
  37. ummm hello! These look and sound awesome! You had me at "nutella". I've pinned these to make for the future!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Made these tonight for the kiddies--and they were so psyched. Didn't have rice krispies, but used corn flakes and they worked great. My kids said I should make these every day. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Yum yum yum! What a killer pairing! I made these a couple of days ago and oh my it is good! I didn't have packaged cereal, but plenty of oats so I just replaced the rice krispies with the same amount of oats. Also no choc chips and used white whole wheat flour. Perhaps it was because I changed up some ingredients, but I had to add more than 1/4 C nutella for an even mix throughout the batter (but then maybe I was making excuses for more nutella...!!) and refridgerated the dough before I cut it up because it was super sticky. Anyway, it came out amazing!! Thank you!!
