2 1/2 cups
unsweetened cocoa powder
butter, room temperature
chocolate-hazelnut spread, such as Nutella®
chopped toasted hazelnuts
I used one generous cup mini chocolate chips and an additional generous cup of dark chocolate chips in this recipe. Baked at 350*, these were perfectly done at ten minutes. I let them cool on the sheet slightly before pulling them off to cool on my countertop. After they cooled, they were perfectly soft with a wonderful chewy texture. BAKERY STYLE COOKIES. Seriously. The family was very impressed with these cookies. Eight thumbs up!
The edges got too crispy too fast. They are very easily burnt. And the flavor is only slightly Nutella. The saltiness and char wasn't pleasant. So I had another pan of dough ready, so I baked them in muffin tins, so they would keep a better shape. They came out like a brownie which was soooo much better. They were gooey on the inside and chocolatey. Still salty. Overly dense, even for a brownie. I topped it with Peppermint marshmallow frosting for Christmas and my family raved over the flavor combo. It really lightened the taste of disappointment for me. Everybody else loved them though. Next time, I'm trying something different. I would recommend a trial run before you take these to an event.
This is a great cookie! Soft, chewy, and most importantly chocolate-hazelnutty! The yield says it makes 2 doz cookies, but when my hubby made them, we got about 5 doz out of them, using a standard 1 oz scoop.
This cookie is definitely worth making though!
Great chewy cookie so don't overbake. Love Hazelnut and chocolate combo and this did not disappoint.
Oh my! These cookies were delicious! Smoochy on the inside and crunchy on the outside. Great flavour.
Nice recipes Ms. Mechanic. :)
I would have taken a photo but they were gone before I had the chance. Seriously, these cookies are soo good. I made them last week and I am making them again this week. Very soft cookies and not super duper sweet. I didn't include the hazelnuts or chocolate chips because I didn't have them but the cookies were still delicious without! You need to bake these! I didn't have a problem with the cookies burning easily like another reviewer... I was skeptical that I could tell when to take the cookies out by them being "fragrant" but the smell of yummy nutella cookies told me they were done. Mine only took 10-12 ish minutes (depending on the cookie size).
These cookies are AWESOME! Totally yummy. I left out the hazlenuts ONLY because my son won't eat nuts. I tried out a 1/2 batch and they vanished. I'm making a double batch tomorrow to take to the PTA meeting. Thank you for a super YUMMY recipe! p.s. - don't overbake, they will set-up perfectly as written.
