Are TikTok Nutella Cookies worth Making?
The short answer is probably not.
These “cookies” remind me of shortbread. Dry. Chocolate and Hazelnut flavor but not ooey-gooey like many other viral dessert trends.
I enjoy them with a cup of coffee but I cannot say I’d make them again. My kids took a bite, even after I told them they wouldn’t like them, and they spit them out.
And because of the expenses of Nutella Hazelnut Chocolate Spread, it’s not an adventure I would care to repeat for mediocre results. In the future, this recipe may fair better with an egg and that may be worth the variation if you want to test.

- all-purpose flour – This cookie recipe only needs plain flour. Do not add any additional white granulated sugar, baking powder, chocolate chips, or baking soda.
- powdered sugar – optional but looks pretty and gives a bit of sweetness.
How to make 2 Ingredient Nutella Cookies
- Preheat the oven temperature to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Mix together Nutella and flour until combined well and dough forms.
- Use a 2 tablespoon portion scoop to scoop the batter onto the palm of your hand.
- Roll cookie dough into a ball and place individual cookies onto the prepared baking sheet.
- Gently press cookies down with your fingers, so they are about 1/2″ thick.
- Cooking Time: Bake for 14-16 minutes or until set.
- Cool completely and sprinkle with powdered sugar, if using, before serving. Another fun idea is to spread on some homemade marshmallow fluff. The recipe makes about a dozen cookies.
