Betty Crocker’s (Hidden Gem) Nutella Cookie Recipe!

THESE COOKIES ARE SO SO GOOD!!  A hazelnut stuffed-cookie with chocolate drizzle is all you need to amp up your baking game this time of year!  Takes right around an hour start to finish and makes two dozen FYI. The very first time I made them they came out perfect, so the recipe is pretty fool-proof 🙂 I just made half without hazelnuts for Ben and they were just as delicious too.





cup hazelnut spread with cocoa
cup powdered sugar
cup chopped hazelnuts (filberts)


cup granulated sugar
cup hazelnut spread with cocoa
cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
teaspoon baking soda
teaspoon baking powder
teaspoon salt
Additional granulated sugar


cup dark chocolate chips
teaspoons shortening
teaspoons finely chopped hazelnuts, if desired



  • Heat oven to 375°F. In small bowl, mix 1/2 cup hazelnut spread, the powdered sugar and 1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts. Shape into 24 (1-inch balls).
  • In large bowl, beat 1 cup granulated sugar, 1/2 cup hazelnut spread, the butter and egg with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon. Stir in flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  • Divide dough into 24 (1 1/2-inch) balls. Flatten each ball into 2 1/2-inch circle. Shape 1 cookie dough circle around 1 hazelnut ball, covering completely. Repeat with remaining dough and hazelnut balls. On ungreased cookie sheet, place filled dough circles about 3 inches apart.
  • Bake 9 to 10 minutes or until edges are set. Cool 5 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.
  • In small microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips and shortening uncovered on High 30 seconds; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Drizzle over cooled cookies; sprinkle each with 1/4 teaspoon finely chopped hazelnuts. Let cookies stand until glaze sets.

Bachelor In Paradise:Week 4 Outfit Details

Unfortunately this was a very tough week for us…as you all know we are VERY close to Amanda and we also became very close to Josh while filming Bachelor In Paradise. Josh was always very kind to us and always treated our best friend with respect and was very sweet to her. Throughout the whole process everyone kept bringing up this whole book that Andi had written and not knowing what was said about Josh in this book it was hard to listen to all the warnings everyone kept telling to not only Amanda but to Emily and I since we were very close to her. While filming for the show you are pretty much on lock down, you cannot have your phones, no television, no music and no contact with your family. Emotions are constantly running high. When our very good friend Nick brought the book to our attention we felt the right thing to do was to tell Amanda how we felt about it all…it probably wasn’t the best timing on our behalf but all we knew was that we wanted our friend Amanda to be careful. Even though we had no reason not to trust Josh’s intentions…after hearing some things we knew as her friends we needed to tell her what everyone else kept saying to us about Josh. Emily and I support Amanda 100% in no way shape or form did we want to hurt her or Josh, we just wanted to look out for someone who means so much to us.

Why we left…Emily and I never intended on being a two for one deal, but it worked in our favor! It allowed us to stay as long as we did. Emily and I were super hopeful coming into this process that we would meet someone amazing, unfortunately we didn’t find “the one” but we met some AMAZING people and made lifelong friendships. We felt like we were getting a free pass through paradise, so it felt unfair of us to stay another week. I hope all of you can understand why we could not pass out our roses…and even though Daniel may not be the hugest fans of us I hope he knows how much we love him. His personality is amazing and bizarre all at the same time, if you needed a good laugh all you had to do was go to Daniel. He’s an amazing man…and we hope he finds his special someone very soon. Cheers to such an amazing journey and all the amazing people we met! And shout out to the amazing Nick Viall who pushed us to be more open to the process and helped us through the emotional roller coaster and who still continues to be an amazing example and support system outside of the show.❤️🌹
