prep time

1 Hour

1. Fill a ziploc bag or piping bag with Nutella, snip a corner off and then squeeze out Nutella about a teaspoon of Nutella on a parchment lined cookie sheet. (I use a half cookie sheet so it fits in my freezer). Freeze for about 30 minutes until solid.


2. Preheat oven to 375F degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.


3. In a large bowl, cream together the sugars and butter until light and fluffy about 2-3 minutes. Add in the egg to the butter mixture and stir to combine. Mix in peanut butter and vanilla until smooth and creamy. Stir in salt, baking soda and flour until well combined.


4. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place your thumb in the center of each to create an indent. Place one Nutella “kiss” into the center. Cover up with more cookie dough. And then roll in sugar. Place on baking sheet and flatten with fork.


5. Bake for 10-12 minutes until edges are golden brown and tops are set. Cool on a wire rack.
