I needed to make some cookies quick the other day for a party. I really wanted to make my Triple Chocolate Mocha Cappuccino Cookies, but I didn’t find any Jif Mocha Cappuccino flavored Hazelnut Spread at the grocery store, so I ended up using Nutella. I had forgotten how much I love Nutella. We have it in the kitchen cabinet all the time, but I try to ignore the jar when it calls to me. I know that if I open it up and smell that intoxicating chocolate hazelnut scent, I will be helpless against it. My hand will automatically grab a spoon and next thing you know, the jar will be empty and I will be licking every last trace of that velvety chocolate spread from all surfaces it dripped onto.
OK, enough dirty talk, back to the cookies. These came out just a good as the mocha cappuccino ones. They were soft, chewy and full of chocolate. I used cocoa, white chocolate chip, and semi-sweet chocolate chips. They came out a little lighter color than the other cookies, but I think it’s because the Jif spread was a darker color to begin with. They did not lack in the flavor department though. The party people were not disappointed.
