This is my 3rd year participating The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap! In 2011 I made these Oatmeal Cranberry Cinnamon Chip Cookies, then in 2012 I made these Mexican Chocolate Chunk Cookies. This year I made Nutella cookies with white chocolate chips.

Here’s a little about how the cookie swap works (You can sign up here to get updates about it for next year!): After you sign up, you are sent the name & address of 3 different food bloggers. You then pick a cookie (anything you’d like) then bake 3 dozen of that cookie – and send one dozen to each of your matches.

In return you get 3 dozen cookies, from 3 totally different bloggers. There’s nothing better than opening your mailbox to find a dozen cookies waiting for you! You can check out my Instagram feed for the photo’s I snapped of each cookie box – and here’s a link to each blog and the recipe for their cookie they sent to me:

Homemade Thin Mint Cookies from Susan of A Less Processed Life

Chocolate Mint Cookies from Meagan of A Zesty Bite

Thanks ladies for sending all these delicious cookies!

Now lets talk about the cookies I sent! I packaged up my cookies and sent them to these lovely bloggers:

KB of Home-Baked Happiness

Ashley of Chronicles of a Foodie

This year I went with a Nutella cookie, loaded with white chocolate chips. Nutella is one of my favorite kitchen ingredients so I decided, why not make it into a cookie. My recipe ended up making 4 dozen, and thank goodness – cuz I was happy to have a few of them to keep at home.

They came out perfectly soft and chewy, with lots of Nutella flavor. Anyone who loves Nutella would definitely enjoy these bad boys.

  3. I had a question regarding the cocoa powder. What type/brand did you use? Also, how do you keep the cookies from becoming hard? I always have a tricky time keeping my cookies soft, even after baking them.

    • Hi Amy!
      So my answer to your cocoa powder question is a little tricky – I use a few different kinds. For these cookies and others where I want to use a regular cocoa powder, I use the Fresh & Easy brand unsweetened cocoa powder (Fresh & Easy is a small grocery store chain in my area, I like it because most of their products are all natural).

      For a good portion of my baking (especially all of my brownie recipes) I use Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa Powder. This has a more intense chocolate flavor. It is a blend of regular cocoa powder and Dutch process cocoa powder. I normally find it at my local Walmart

      And last, I like to use Dutch process cocoa powder. It tastes absolutely divine and has a more complex and chocolatey flavor, but due to the way it is made it requires special care when baking sue to its reaction to leavening agents (baking powder/soda). It can be pretty pricy so I like to buy mine online. This one is my favorite (Plus it’s organic & FT)

      I used to be in a constant battle with cookies becoming hard. I finally ditched the idea of keeping them in a cookie jar, and not keep them in Tupperware – but make sure it deals really well. Air is the enemy here. I also make sure not to over bake the cookies. If they are even slightly over-baked, they get hard even quicker.

      Thanks Amy – I hope this helps! And sorry for the suuper long answer

  4. Found these on Pinterest and I made them tonight– so delicious!!! FYI your ingredient list is missing a measurement for the amount of white chocolate chips. Not a big deal, easy enough to just dump some in til it looks like enough… Just thought you would want to know. Thanks for sharing these!!! ;)

    • Hi Amanda! I am so glad you enjoyed them! And thank you SO much for letting me know I left the white chocolate chips off the ingredient list – I have updated the recipe :)

      • You are so welcome!! I continue to enjoy them today and I’m taking them to my Bunco group tonight… I’m sure they will enjoy them as well. Thanks again for sharing this! I look forward to trying some of your other cookie recipes… added ya to my feedly!! :)
