This month the Creative Cookie Exchange is sharing drop cookies.  I like drop cookies because they are easy to make.   All I have to do is whip up the batter and plop them on a baking sheet.  There is no rolling, no cutting, no shaping.

I’ve made a lot of drop cookies in my life.  I have a basic sugar cookie recipe that I use for chocolate chip cookies, cinnamon chip cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies, and more!   They are all drop cookies that can be made quickly and easily.

Scoop up a batch of these Chocolate Caramel Nutella Cookies

I wanted to make something different for this month’s cookie challenge.  As usual I looked in my pantry, cupboards, and refrigerator to check out my ingredients.  I’m glad I was home alone because I had bags of ingredients all over the kitchen, the counters, and the floor.

Bite into one of these Chocolate Caramel Nutella Cookies

I’d been craving caramel so I grabbed a bag of the caramel bits and put them on the counter.   I was either going to make a caramel pecan cookie or a chocolate caramel cookie.   Since I happen to be out of pecan the chocolate caramel cookie won.   As I was putting ingredients back into the cupboard I noticed the jar of Nutella.

So the Salted Caramel Nutella Cookies were made!  It takes my classic drop cookie batter, adds in caramel bits, and then mixes in Nutella.   The resulting cookies are chewy and delicious.   I love the flavors from the chocolate, hazelnut, and salted caramel all wrapped up in one chewy-licious cookie.
