{recipe} nutella swirl chocolate chip cookies

They were totally as good as they sound!

I baked these cookies for my roommate's 21st birthday celebration this weekend.

She invited a bunch of her sorority sisters and my other roommate and I invited ours for a little appetizer & martini party at our apartment.

We threw together some spinach balls (yum, yum, yum, yum - these were a HUGE hit. Pick marinara sauce as the dip, you won't be sorry.), Parmesan baked artichokes (served these with sliced Italian bread), and a Mediterranean chickpea salad. Our friends brought over guacamole, pasta salad, and a delish brie with apples appetizer. Rima loves to travel, so the theme for the night was Around the World!

My roommate Amanda & I surprised Rima with a 21st birthday sign.
After a few martinis it was off to our favorite karaoke bar!

Birthday girl was not prepared!


It was so much fun and Rima had the absolute time of her life!

Now, back to the cookies. :)

I also added a bit of sea salt on top.

Because of the Nutella, the cookie dough was SUPER sticky. I totally recommend using two spoons and plopping the dough down on the parchment paper instead of your hands.... unless you enjoy crazy cookie dough monster hands?

Don't put so many cookies on one sheet at a time or else your cookies will end up like this:

Some more pictures from Friday night - 

I was the DD / Paparazzi extraordinaire for the night.
I was quite pleased with myself when I captured this picture of Rima with her sorority sisters. :)

It is called Pixlr-o-Matic.
