  • Method: Bake


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1+1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 3/4 cup butter – softened
  • 1 cup sugar (plus about 1/4 cup to roll the dough in before baking)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  • 2 cups Nutella
  • 1 cup caramel sauce
  • 1 cup pecans- chopped
  • 1/2 cup shaved white chocolate – I buy a block and use a vegetable peeler to make shavings


Preheat oven to 350F

  1. In a small mixing bowl, mix the flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and cayenne pepper together. Set aside.
  2. In a separate larger bowl, cream together the butter, 1 cup sugar, egg, and molasses. Beat with an electric mixer for at least 2 minutes.
  3. Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and mix together (using the electric mixer) until well combined.
  4. Place the extra 1/4 cup sugar in a small bowl.
  5. Use a cookie scoop to scoop out tablespoon-sized balls and plop into the sugar. Pick up the bowl and swirl around until the dough is covered in the sugar and has formed a ball.
  6. Place cookie dough balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake cookies at 350° for 10 minutes.
  7. Once the cookies have cooled a little dollop a little Nutella on each cookie. Then, sprinkle on a couple of chopped pecans. Next, sprinkle on the shaved white chocolate and finally drizzle on the caramel sauce. So good you can’t have just one.
