I’m feeling a little sad…it’s the last few days before Winter break is over. It is so great to just be able to hang out with everyone and not have to do homework.  It’s not my homework but, sometimes I feel like it is…you know what I mean?  I love history and science but bring my geometry and my  head hurts. LOL

Anyway, for some more together time we decided to do some more baking.  I love peanut butter and I love Nutella…combine the two and I am in heaven 🙂 These cookies are super simple to make and are simply Aaaamazing! They are the perfect combination of a soft peanut butter cookie and chocolate hazelnut spread. Yum!

  1. oh my goodness those look so good! I like the large amount of nutella you used. Add nutella to anything and your set. I once wanted to eat nutella plain but I felt strange so I took pop sickle sticks and made nutella pops in the refrigerator. Yum 🙂
