Nutella Thumbprint Cookies

Hello friends!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and/or fantastic day off to enjoy with family and friends!

I know I did.

My vacation has been so lovely in fact, that managing to get any work done at all has been sort of well,

how would I put this….


Am I allowed to blame the weather on this one? It’s SEVENTY degrees and incredibly sunny down here in Florida, and I’m trying to soak in as much Vitamin D as possible before I have to fly back up into the tundra.

A tundra in which it’s been more overcast than sunny, I might add.

  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 jar Nutella (you may need less, but just to be on the safe side!)
  • assorted sprinkles, optional
