Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

So today I went to Costco and bought the double jar of Nutella!  Best purchase ever... And with this purchase I needed to bake.  I found a recipe for Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies but scanned a few for the right one.  I wanted to find the recipe with the most Nutella in it.  I found this recipe on Lovin From the Oven, one of my favorite baking blogs, and decided to give it a go.  Needless to say, these cookies are amazing!  They are super chocolaty and delicious.  My favorite part about this recipe is that it has cinnamon in it, one of my favorite ingredients.  I am working on stocking up the freezer with cookies for this weekend when I get to see all my boys!  They will be in town from all over the States, and one from Argentina.  So that means time to bake, bake, bake.  This is just the first of this weeks baking escapade.   Its also my aunts birthday at the end of the week so I will be making cupcakes later.  If you have any suggestions, let me know!
