Salted Chocolate Nutella Sandwich Cookie: I’m Lovin’ It


I don’t know about you, but I love a good sandwich, especially when the sandwich is the sweet kind, and involves Nutella!  As in, these Nutella Sandwich Cookies I made a few months back.

Salted Chocolate Nutella Sandwich Cookie

Take two dark chocolate crispy oat cookies and smear a little Nutella between the two, with a dusting of sea salt and you’ve got yourself one heck of a good sandwich.  Am I right?

Last summer Feast Magazine asked if I would like to choose a recipe to write about from a recent cooking class for parents and children at the Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis, where they presented a booklet of recipes for livening up school lunches with more inventive options.  Of course I went after the cookies 😉

Nutella Sandwich Cookies


These cookies are the perfect balance of chocolate and Nutella all wrapped up in a chewy cookie. It’s impossible to just have one.

I will warn you – I’m not responsible for increased pants size if you are watching calories nor can I be held accountable for feeding a Nutella obsession.  But do as I say, make a batch – I promise you won’t regret it!

Oh I suppose you’d like the recipe, right?  They’re super simple to make and even better to eat. Nutella fans are going to love them and don’t worry about being “too sweet”,  a nice little sprinkle of salt on top balances out the flavors beautifully .

    Hi Cheryl, thank You for hosting this party. It’s my first time at your blog and party! Everything is fantastic. I got a question for you..I read your article about food photography and I’m interested in purchasing the PDF but I don’t know how far behind am I in the installments, also is it 5 dollars for each issue of the series and in your opinion will the tips work with a point and shoot camera (that’s all I have) I just started blogging and right now I can’t afford a professional camera, but still will like to take nice pictures. I’ll appreciate the feedback! Thanks and have a great weekend. Oh I’m following you now on FB and subscribed. Will be great if you visit my blog if you get a chance a give me your opinion on what you see so far! Thanks!

    Would you believe it? I think I’m the only person left in the world who has never tasted Nutella? I’ve only recently been hearing about it’s exsistance and it’s many uses in recipes. I promise you, I wasn’t born yesterday nor under a rock…lol! I am going to get some this very day and make these cookies. If what you say may happen, I may have to go shopping next week for bigger pants! Thank you, Cheryl! Have a great weekend!

    I don’t care one iota if my pant size increases. These are going on my must bake list and I have a feeling they will become a favourite.
