Do you ever have those moments when you are looking at a recipe and you HAVE TO HAVE whatever you are looking at… I have these moments on a regular basis. This usually happens when I am watching TV and the people are eating. Half the time I don’t realize that my sudden craving is related to watching people scarf their dinner down on TV. My husband is the one who typically the one who lets me know that my sudden fried chicken craving is due to Modern Family. I was looking through my RSS feed that is filled with other food blogs looking for something new to add to my Pinterest account and I saw these beauties.
I knew in that very moment that I needed to bake these ASAP. There was no doubt in my mind that I would be cramming one of these bad boys in my face within a couple hours. I am so glad that I did. These Nutella White Chocolate Chip Cranberry Cookies are soft chocolate pillows of yum. They are not overly sweet which is what I was expecting. They are so pretty and satisfied my sweet tooth.
These are so thick and chewy!
