Nutella chocolate Cookies

I'm on a roll,  cookie baking fest is going full-on. Having a nutella-crazy little kid, experimenting anything with it or chocolate for that matter is easy. There's the inspiration right there!
These turned out so good that we decided to share it with Santa. How generous of us!

Ingredients:½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
½ cup Nutella
1 egg
½ tsp. vanilla
1 ½ cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt
1/2 cup chopped chocolate bits (I used Giraldeli milk choc)

Preheat oven to 350F.

Cream butter and sugars in a mixer on high speed,  about 3 minutes, until light and fluffy.
Add the egg, vanilla, Nutella and mix well.
Add the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix on low speed until all the ingredients are incorporated. Increase the speed to medium and mix just until the dough is smooth. Fold in chocolate chips.
Bake 6-7 minutes. Let cookies cool about 5 minutes and transfer to a rack to cool completely.
