Peanut Butter Nutella Swirl Cookies

Teresa Jacobson


These are great fun, look pretty and taste great too! Nutella is one of those treats for myself when I'm wanting to scarf down every bit of chocolate in a 3 square mile radius! One of these cookies can usually quiet the beast and only adds 115 calories to my day!
