Salted Chocolate Nutella Sandwich Cookies

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, the Nutella Sandwich Cookies I made a few months back.

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 😉

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?  These Nutella Sandwich Cookies are 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.
