Nutella Macaroons

nutella macaroons 2

We’re up in Portland, Maine, celebrating our wedding anniversary this holiday weekend! I always try to make some sort of treat for snacking during road trips and this time baked up a batch of macaroons, which are Apolinaras’ absolute favorite cookie. I never have to ask him what to order when we’re in bakeries – he always picks macaroons!

These are extra special macaroons because they have Nutella in them. I’m not a huge macaroon fan myself, but the Nutella in these makes them pretty irresistible. They also come together really quickly. I whipped them up while we were packing for our trip on Saturday morning. We may or may not only have three cookies left… I hope you’re all enjoying the long weekend!
