Nutella and Coconut Cookies

I really need a cookie! Nutella and Coconut Cookies really hit the spot today after my last final at school. As I get excited for summer, I know I will be making more of these cookies since they are made with Nutella! Yum. Nutella has been a popular spread for sandwiches, toast, pancakes, etc! I recently found out that it is perfect to add to cookie recipes like these delicious Nutella and Coconut Cookies, making each cookie delectable and chocolatey. To make these cookies extra delicious I added chopped hazelnuts to emphasize my liking for hazelnuts and of course, I added coconut. My fave. <3
