Deliciously Sprinkled

Chocolate Nutella Cookies

Chocolate Nutella Cookies

Can you believe it’s going to be Father’s Day this weekend already!? Time is just flying by way too fast, so in honor of Father’s Day on Sunday, I thought I would share with you one of my Dad’s favorite cookies, chocolate cake mix cookies. And because I love my Dad so much I added a spread of Nutella and SPRINKLES on top to make these cookies extra special for him on Father’s Day!

As most of you know by now, I have a BIG sweet tooth and I can thank my dad for that. My dad is the dessert king, and I was his little dessert princess. Since I was little my dad would always take us out for ice cream after dinner, no matter how full we were from dinner! I remember times when I didn’t eat all my dinner because I knew my dad was going to take us out for ice cream and I wanted to make sure I had enough room in my tummy for a triple scoop of vanilla ice cream with SPRINKLES!

And to this day when I come home to visit my parents, my dad always takes all of us on a road trip to get an ice cream cone! So on this Father’s Day I want to thank my dad for my big sweet tooth and most importantly my LOVE FOR SPRINKLES!

Ok, enough about my dad and let’s talk about these delicious Chocolate Nutella Cookies that you should make for your dad/husband/brother or anyone really because they are so EASY to make, I think cake mix cookies are one, if not the easiest cookie recipe I make!

I made these cookies even more fun by spreading a generous amount of Nutella on them and rolling these cookies in SPRINKLES making them even more amazingly delicious! 🙂
