  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet or line it with parchment paper.
  2. Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Mix with a whisk to break up any lumps.
  3. Beat butter, brown sugar, and white sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time until completely incorporated. Mix in vanilla and chocolate-hazelnut spread.
  4. Slowly add in flour mixture and stir just until combined. Fold in chopped hazelnuts and chocolate chips. Drop the dough onto prepared baking sheet by tablespoons or with a cookie scoop.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until edges look dry and cookies are fragrant, about 12 minutes. Allow to cool for 1 minute on baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack.

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!

I would say these were...meh. Like other reviewers, I liked the texture- crispy outside and chewy inside. However, I just didn't think they were chocolatey hazelnutty enough. I might try again doubling the nutella.

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.

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.

My Marine daughter loves Nutella, so when she was deployed last year, I sent her a batch which she loved :)

We were fresh out of hazelnuts so I used chopped peanuts. These were a surprise for my husband and he LOVED them. Chewy, soft, a tiny bit crispy on the outside...basically, perfect. I made them with extra large balls (2" in diameter) and the 12 minute cooking time resulted in some gorgeous cookies. Yum. Yum. Yum. I am so glad we were out of peanut butter and I had to find an alternative recipe!
