If you are on a diet, or a health food junkie, stop reading now. I warn you, the recipe I'm about to share isn't healthy. In fact, it includes ingredients like butter, M&M candies and Nutella hazelnut spread. However, if you want a cookie recipe that's unique and sure to be a crowd pleaser, you must try this.
This is another one of those recipes I found on Pinterest (yes, I have an addiction) and, like I said, it isn't healthy but boy, it sure tastes good. I'm a believer in moderation, meaning anything is good for you, as long as it's in moderation. I like to apply this philosophy to food especially. As someone who enjoys eating good food, I think it's important to not starve yourself for the "perfect" body. As long as you exercise at least twice a week and are active, I see no reason why you can't indulge a little in life's fine pleasures... like butter, Nutella and M&M candies.
To make this cookie recipe, you'll need the following:
- 1 c. butter, softened
- 1/2 c. packed brown sugar
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 c. flour
- 1/2 -3/4 c. Nutella
- 1 package mini M&M's
To start, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Next, using a stand mixer or electric hand mixer, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Add in the yolks, continuing to mix, and then the flour. Once mixed together, take scoops of the dough and form into 1-inch rounds. Place on the cookie sheet and, using your thumb, press down on the center. Bake for 10-12 minutes, then cool on a wire rack. Once cooled, place a small scoop of Nutella into the thumbprint and top with 5-6 mini M&M's. Enjoy!
