· ½ cup unsalted butter, softened

· 2/3 cup light brown sugar

· ¼ cup sugar

· ¾ cups Nutella

· 1 large egg

· 1½ teaspoon vanilla extract

· 1½ cup flour

· 1½ teaspoon corn flour

· ½ teaspoon baking powder

· ½ teaspoon baking soda

· ½ teaspoon salt

· ½ cup chocolate chunks

Combine the softened butter, both the sugars, and Nutella in the bowl of a stand mixer (or in a large bowl, using electric mixer) and beat until the ingredients are combined and well-creamed. Add egg and vanilla extract and stir until well-combined. In a separate, medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, corn flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ones until completely combined – be sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl with a spatula to ensure that all ingredients are well-incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chunks. Cover the bowl with cling wrap and chill for at least three hours. Once the dough has been chilled, preheat the oven to 190°C and line the cookie sheets with parchment paper. Remove from the refrigerator and roll them into two tablespoon-sized balls. Roll the dough into balls and place them on prepared cookie sheet at least two-inch apart. Bake on 190°C for 10-13 minutes, remove from the oven and allow to cool completely on the cookie sheet. Enjoy!
