Pinterest Projects is an ongoing series wherein I attempt to justify hours
wasted spent on Pinterest by making projects from some of the inspiration I find there.
Let’s talk about Nutella, shall we? When I was a young lady of 19 (eons ago), I did a summer study abroad program in Florence. I discovered many things in Italy that summer: Renaissance art, sketchy Florentine clubs, and the joys of gallon-sized wine jugs, to name a few. But the discovery my friends and I were happiest about? Nutella. The villa we lived at served it with breakfast. Every. Single. Day. As you can imagine, it was a glorious summer.
Suffice it to say, whenever I see a recipe on Pinterest that includes “Nutella” in the description, I take notice. And when I saw this recipe (pin here; original recipe from Ambitious Kitchen), it looked to die for. So I made it. And it was to die for.
The Nutella gives these cookies a wonderfully gooey center, and the sea salt is the perfect contrast to the cookie’s sweetness. These are delicious, and I’m certain I’m going to bust this recipe out again over the holidays; I need to expose as many of my family and friends to these as possible.
