Triple Chocolate Nutella Tailgating Cookies

Family, Food & Football – that’s what it’s all about in fall, am I right?!

While some people like the wings and the nachos, our family we head right to the sweet treats.  And the more chocolate the better.  I’m so glad that I’m part of the eMeals blogger network (and because of that, I get some free menu plans to help me feed my family – and if you click any of the links to sign up … I’ll earn a bit of cash, so thanks) even before I became a part of it, it was my go to place to find the best recipes that are going to get inhaled quickly around here.

What if you gave a tailgate party and the food was as big a hit as the quarterback’s game-winning Hail Mary pass? Now you can – with a crowd-pleasing, wings-and-things tailgating menu from online meal planning service eMeals that feeds up to 12 people. Easy-cook recipes are provided as a free bonus to new subscribers who sign up for any eMeals menu plan through October 2. Just add drinks, wear your home team’s jersey, and get ready to party!

eMeals’ tailgating spread includes five game-time dishes that can be assembled in a snap: Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sliders, Buffalo Chicken Cheese Dip, Jalapeno Poppers, Easy Blue Cheese Chicken Wings, and Marinated Chicken, Onion and Mushroom Kabobs. Dessert is a just-as-fast six-ingredient Chocolate Toffee Peanut Butter Krispy Treat concoction that is cut into bars for easy eating.

The following recipe is from the eMeals blog, and it’s one of our favorites, and when you add some seasonal chocolate chips – they’re perfect for game day!

  1. Dang, Girl! Those look fantastic. Why did you have to go and post them while I am on the last day of my diet? 😉 I so want to cheat RIGHT NOW!

  2. These look and sound amazing! I really want to make these this weekend but I may skip the chocolate chips and add in some chopped hazelnuts.
