Peanut Butter Nutella Cookies Recipe

And here’s what you’ll need:

350 grams plain flour

1tspn baking soda (bicarbonate of soda)

A pinch of salt

2 eggs

100 grams of butter

120 grams of brown sugar

120 grams of castor sugar

A dash of vanilla essence

150 grams Nutella

Extra Nutella

150 grams of peanut butter

About 100 grams Smarties

Icing sugar

Water

Method

Heat oven up to 210 degrees Celsius

Loosely mix dry ingredients with your hands.

Crack the eggs into a bowl an briefly mix with a fork.

Pour the egg into the flour then briefly mix that with a fork.  It doesn’t have to be combined completely.

Break the butter into the mixture, then add brown sugar, castor sugar, vanilla essence, Nutella and peanut butter.

Put a little bit of flour on a surface so it doesn’t stick.

Combine everything together until it forms a thick dough so you can knead it.

Now the Smarties can be used whole or crushed.  To crush the Smarties put them in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin to crush lightly.

As each cookie will have two pieces roll two balls up then flatten them between the palms of your hands.  They will expand quite a bit in the oven so a smaller size will be ample.

Then put them on a tray lined with grease proof paper.

Put a few smarties on every other cookie as you won’t need them on the bottom half.

Put them in the oven for about twenty minutes or…Until they are cooked.

For the extra Nutella which is going to be put between the two cookies, mix up the icing sugar and a little bit of water until it is a medium consistency.

When the cookies are cooked and cooled spread the Nutella and icing sugar mix on a cookie without the Smarties then put a cookie with Smarties on top.

And there you have it!  Giant peanut butter and Nutella Cookies!

 

Now for a variation of this recipe why not try the peanut butter Nutella cookies without the Nutella between the cookies.  Then put a bit of the icing sugar mix on top of the cookies?

Alternatively why not put the smarties on top rather than the icing sugar mix.

Either way , they’re super yummy.

 

So please enjoy these Peanut Butter Nutella cookies.  Have you considered  them as easy party food ideas?
