Nutella Swirled Peanut Butter Cookies

Nutella cookies with peanut butter will make any day brighter!Nutella cookies on a blue napkin

It’s totally cookie season, y’all. You should be like me and head to the nearest grocery store to stock up on butter. I currently have 10 pounds of butter in my refrigerator. You think I’m joking, but no. I am not.

Chocolate chips? I have an entire bin in my pantry devoted to nothing but chocolate chips. Dark chocolate, semi-sweet, milk chocolate, white chocolate, I have it all. I’ve even got peanut butter chips and toffee bits.

I take holiday baking very seriously. You should too.

Nutella cookies are always a hit!

This really isn’t a very holiday-ish recipe at all, but it’s a cookie so I’m going with it. Also, I just put my tree up today and am feeling very sparkly and shoppy. Baking is better on the wallet than shopping, though.

Not so much on the waist.
