I'm a personal chef
The word above was supposed to be surpassing.....
I thought these were fabulous! I made them for my son and he shared them with his midshipmen friends at the Naval Academy and they are his hands down favorite, upsurping (word?) his previous favorite english toffee chocolate chip. The recipe was putzy and took a while for me to encase the nutella. In the end, I made far less cookies than the batch said, and they didn't look the same as the picture, but rather like a marbled drop cookie. I didn't let them brown, but just took out and the texture was fine and to die for. Overall, takes a little more time to encase chocolate, but worth the effort for sure.
My son & his buddies at the Naval Academy voted this cookie the most unbelieveably delicious cookie; and said to make these from now on...not his favorite chocolate chip/english toffee cookies he loved for years. I thought they were amazing; although mine didn't look like the picture, but rather like a drop cookie with a little marbelization (even though I encased the nutella). The recipe didn't make that much, I didn't get nearly the amount it said and it was very putzy, trying to work with the sticky dough to encase the chocolate. HOWEVER, this recipe is a total winner! I will be making it again; and I will use Justin's next time. I saw that at my healthfood store!
