“Nutella” Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies
Cook time: 0 hours 10 minutes
Servings: 12 servings
• 2 cups (270 grams) hazelnuts
• 1/2 cup sugar
• 1/4 cup cacao
• 2 tbsp melted dark chocolate
• 1/3 cup flour
• 1 tsp baking soda
• 1 tsp vanilla
• 1/4 tsp salt
• 2 tbsp dairy free milk
• melted chocolate
• chopped hazelnuts
The first step is to turn the hazelnuts into hazelnut butter. Start by adding the hazelnuts to a food processor.
Blend the hazelnuts on high speed for a full minute. Then pause to scrape off the sides. Blend again for another minute and pause again to scrape off the sides. Repeat this process at least 5 or 6 times, until you have a creamy liquid consistency. This is your hazelnut butter.
Transfer the hazelnut butter into a large bowl. To it, add the sugar, cacao, melted chocolate, flour, baking soda, vanilla, salt and milk.
Combine the ingredients well and form the dough into balls, about 1 inch in diameter.
Line the cookies on a baking tray. Gently pat the tops of each cookie to flatten them a bit.
Bake in the oven for 10 minutes at 350F/ 175C.
Allow the cookies to cool for at least 30 minutes. Melt some chocolate and dip half of each cookie in the chocolate. Sprinkle with crushed hazelnuts.
Allow the chocolate to harden and enjoy your delicious chocolate hazelnut cookies 🥰
