    sooo… Did Leta eat one?

    That is the true question:)

  • http://sarahkite.blogspot.com sarahekite

    That has got to bloody be the best feel better bowl of goodness I’ve ever seen. Good for you and enjoy!

    I hope things start to pick up and fall into place for your house.

  • Molicious

    Sounds like a perfect fix to me. Except I would have eaten about 5 of them.

  • Shelley Bonnechance

    I think it shows a measure of self-restraint not often seen in this naughty world that you were actually able to spread Nutella on something before consuming it. I usually just lick it right out of the jar like a dog. I’ve always been thankful that the container is too small to get stuck on my face.

    What? No chocolate syrup?!

    well. a bad-ass cookie denouement. how did i find your site? ah yes: some friend insisted, probably sent the url. i have two kids. three and eleven months. was until recently a fantastic drunk; still quite enjoy the weekly binge over thai or fourteen dollar cab on the back deck. in fact, while aidan watches zaboomafoo, i just snuck off to smoke a jay in the half-packed junk room (we are moving to bainbridge island in a week, an act condoned, apparently, by money magazine, a bunch of white men i have no wish to know; but still) what? nicely done, dooce, and here we go spelunking.. . .

    I think I’ve discovered my new breakfast food.


  • Mack’sMom

    Oh MY GOD, that looks so good! My mouth is watering!

    Another item to sell on Ebay!!

    So I’m thinking a dooce cookbook… the profits could go to your sewer line!

    Beautiful. A work of art.

    I want to be stuck in some major troubles just to justify eating one of those.

    mmm…yummy. Food is good. good food is better!! Did everyone enjoy them?? ;)

    NUTELLA = MUCH LOVE. You people are savants.

    It looks like you’ve got the comfort eating thing down pat! Now my breakfast of Cheerios seems so sadly insufficient.

    BURP. ahhhhhhhhh Brrmmmphhfff…. wooo eeee!!!!

  • Bird Lover

    Try this soul fix next time. Get you some ready bake chocolate & caramel chip cookies, but don’t cook them all of the way. Cook them half way so that the dough is still kind of gooey but they are warm enough to melt the ice cream you are going to scoop on top of it.

    I tear up just thinking about it.

  • lyssann

    Ahhh! your nutella cookies are evil I tell you! I had a crappy week (no where near as crappy as yours, just stressful) and your cookies made me go to the store and buy pre-made cookies and bake them. Oh, and twinkies, but I think that’s just b/c I was hungry at the store. ::shakes fist in rage:: But they were yummy anyway.

    Here’s to your next week being better! ::clinks cookies::

    Heather, I just read this and thought of you:


    Now THAT would take one BIG ASS cookie.

  • Mlwooten

    Umm… is that Leta’s portion or am I just a pregnant monster that eats 10x that much?

  • Latch24

    Hi Heather! I have to commend you on the mixing of peanut butter and nutella, thats something I have to stop myself from doing because its just so yummy. Also, if you really want to drool you should check out this http://www.shauny.org/pussycat/2006/01/megatella.php
    I almost cried when I found out that I couldn’t get this in australia…

    Your comfort food looks sooooo amazingly good. You get and A+ and an extra 10 points for presentation.

  • moonrattled

    That cookie could knock sense into Kellie Pickler.

  • http://wendymacblogs.blogspot.com Wendy Mac

    Thanks, my Lean Cuisine looks SO APPETIZING right now.

    And hey, guess what? Last night my husband accidentally broke a PIPE in our backyard. Don’t ask.

    But we have 2 choices right now: a flooded back yard and risk a nice California landslide down the hill, or no water.

    A hotel is looking good right now. And so is your cookie treat! I’m sorry to hear how expensive it is, just know we’re swearing right along with you.

    And drooling on your cookie.

  • http://jody2ms.com/ jody2ms

    I cringed reading about your plumbing woes. We live in a house that is close to 80yo, and we hold our breath, waiting for something major to blow on the damn thing.

    Dig in. The cookie-heroin was well earned.

  • http://fractureddestiny.blogspot.com destiny

    Thanks to you my lard ass has gained 25 pounds just from looking at the liquid crack other wise known as a cookie!!!

  • babbling

    I take comfort in this fact. Leta is wayyyyyyyyy too smart. By the time she’s of college age, she’ll be running Armstrong Media. No college required. Voila, that’s a savings of like,,,,,oh I dunno by that time? 500,000 bucks or so, give or take the dorm and meals. Since you are saving on that, take heart in spending all of your savings on the pipes! by the way? maybe I’m just Captain Insaneo with a cape and all? but is it ok for someone other than the Armstrongs to use dooce to sell t-shirts?

  • http://www.thisfish.com Heather

    Oh My God Our Plumbing’s Fucked Cookies look suspiciously like Third Break-up This Year Cookies.

  • nancy robbins

    Sorry about the expensive plumbing problems but you sure know how to cheer your self up with the most wonderful looking desert. I am going to try your recipe.
    thanks for the pounds, i’m sure going to enjoy them.

  • winwetz

    Nutella is the food of the gods.

  • Manzabar

    Reminds me of a cookie recipe I whipped up during a particularly bad time in my high school years. Basically, you take the recipe off the back of the Nestle chocolate chips bag, double the amount of chocolate chips, add an equal amount of M&Ms and make 3 cookies. :)

  • http://www.eleven21.com Ryan Stewart

    I think the term “dooce” can now offcially be placed in the dictionary as a noun. It is the perfect name for this beautiful creation.

    Has anyone ever seen the Taco Town commericial on SNL? A friend of a friend made some of their “tacos” for his birthday. Click on the link to see the SNL clip followed by pictures of the birthday party.

    Excellent. Also? Versitile. As in the Oh My God There Are Jehovah Witnesses At The Door Again Cookies. Or perhaps the Oh My God You Want How Much To Paint My House Cookies. Or my personal favorite, the Oh My God I’ve Given Birth To A Republican Cookies. Which, I think, should be served with heroin laced whipped cream and roofie sprinkles for maximum enjoyment…

  • Charlie

    Who needs Bobby Flay? Iron Chef has nothing on you guys. Except maybe more coke.

  • kelly

    Can I come and live with y’all as part of your family? Your food looks delicious. ;)

  • http://www.spectacularlynormal.blogspot.com Irina

    Damn. How can you eat this and look like you? I’m jealous. Ah, suddenly I long for the days when I was pregnant and ate nutella straight of the jar with a spoon. That was livin’.

  • JennJenn

    God Bless you and your delicious dilema….

    Hey Dooce,
    This is my personal recipe for such disasters:

    Hot Fudge Sauce
    1 1/2 C. chocolate chips (or caramels, or peanut butter chips…whatever flavor you want)
    2 2/3 C. canned milk (NOT sweetened condensed milk. just the regular evaporated)
    4 C. icing sugar (this is Canadian for powdered sugar)
    1/2 C. butter

    Melt in sauce pan over medium heat. Bring to a boil for 10 mins, occasionally stirring. Remove from heat and add 1/2 tsp. vanilla. Let cool. Keep refrigerated.

    It works best as medication when spooned straight from the jar to your mouth. For lesser emergencies, however, it can be served over icecream.

  • http://www.issasworld.typepad.com Melissa

    Even though I’m sick from all the crap that I ate yesterday (my birthday indulgence), I so totally want that. You guys are brillant. I’ve never tried Nutella though. Looks tasty.

  • http://joyunexpected.com Y

    And here I was feeling guilty for eating spoonfuls of chocolate frosting. I feel better now.

    Better and also jealous because, man, I wish I had a cookie to go with the frosting.

  • Self-Proclaimed Supermom

    That looks wonderful. I may have to make one of those this weekend.

    Hang in there!

    Sorry to hear about your troubles! My husband Shaun embraces your cookies covered and smothered in candy and 5 lbs soothes these kinds of things. He also thinks that ice cream is the best tool to getting the caramel syrup in one’s mouth to begin with, but I digress. BTW only the best mom’s hand their child the bowl sans spoon to eat with the 2 utensils God gave them just for cirumstances just as this. I hear ice cream is the next best breakfast entree.

  • la_florecita

    Wow, that’s awesome. I think I’ll make one too and name it the I Leave at 7am Tomorrow to Ride My Bike 186 Miles To Austin In The MS 150 Cookie.

    I have to carb up, right??

    p.s. Choice, I died laughing at your “lasagna stuffed in a burrito and battered and deep fried” thing!!
