Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies from Zestuous I like my chocolate chip cookies soft and chewy. Thanks to a trick I found online years ago, cornstarch is the magic ingredient that makes chewy cookieness possible. That and a strict 10-minute cook time.

These cookies hit the mark and then some. Along with chunks of chocolate in every tender bite, Nutella and chopped hazelnuts make them even more delectable. If you want to really take them over the edge, use Frangelico (hazelnut liqueur) instead of vanilla.
