What You’ll Need for Chocolate Chip Cookie Pops with Nutella® Hazelnut Spread:
- Brown Sugar
- White Sugar
- All-Purpose Flour
- Baking Soda
- Chocolate Chips
- Nutella® Hazelnut Spread
I started by mixing up a batch of my favorite tried-and-true chocolate chip cookie recipe. This recipe is always a huge hit, so I knew it would make the perfect base for my cookie pops! I rolled the cookie dough into large balls approximately 1.5″ wide and inserted the lollipop sticks. Next, the dough balls went into the refrigerator to cool for 15 minutes – this helps the cookies stay thick and not spread too thin while baking. Plus, the chilling step also gives the freshly baked cookies an amazingly perfect chewy texture that you just can’t beat! The cookies bake for 10-12 minutes until they are lightly golden and then cooled on the baking sheet for five minutes before being moved to a cooling rack. Once the cookie pops have completely cooled, it’s time to add the fun! My family can’t get enough of Nutella®, the yummy hazelnut spread, that they add to everything from bananas to sandwiches, so I knew it would make the perfect addition to our holiday cookie pops! I used about a tablespoon of Nutella® on top of each cookie, and it was the perfect cookie-to-Nutella® ratio. A little bit of Nutella® goes a long way towards making it the star of the show! I topped a few of my cookie pops with chopped nuts, but crushed pretzels or dried fruit would also make fantastic toppings, too! Add a cute ribbon and this yummy cookie pop is ready for gifting! If your cookies need to travel a bit to reach their final destination, wrap the cookie in a cellophane cookie bag before adding the gift ribbon. I mean, seriously, how adorable are these Nutella® chocolate chip cookie pops?! WAY cute! Bonus points for the fact that they also taste just as delicious as they look!
