These Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies are essentially Nutella Cookies, which makes them have a really special flavor that’s nostalgic and delicious! Chewy and rich, these cookies take just 5 minutes to prep with just 4 ingredients! They are the perfect way to get your chocolate fix!
- Chocolate hazelnut spread: The essential ingredient! Nutella is the obvious choice but any other brand will work well.
- Egg: To bind the dry ingredients together.
- Flour: All purpose flour works really well in this recipe, but you can also try these with gluten-free 1:1 all purpose flour and they should work well.
- Crushed hazelnuts: The nuts add a nice crunchy texture to the cookies. You could also use almonds or peanuts if you prefer, or leave them out.
How to Make Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies
- Place the ingredients together in a bowl.
- Whisk them together until well combined without any streaks of flour.
- Place the chocolate hazelnut cookie batter on a baking sheet and pop them in the oven.
- Bake until they spread and the bottoms are golden brown.
Tips for Making The cookies
- Don’t over mix the batter. Mix the cookie batter well so that there is no dry flour left in the bowl, but don’t over mix as this can result in tough cookies
- Leave room for the cookies to spread. When placing the cookies on the baking sheet, leave some room between each one as they will double in size.
- Chill the dough balls before baking. This will help the fat in the Nutella to solidify and they won’t spread as much when baked.
Frequently asked questions
Store the cookies in an airtight container and they stay chewy and irresistible – well, that is, if they last a few days! You can also make the dough a day ahead of time and store covered in the fridge. Make sure that your cookies are fully cooled before storing.
When you bake cookies that are dark in color, it can be hard to tell when they are done. Once the cookies are cooked, they will lose their shine and if they don’t fall inwards if you gently poke them, they are done. The cookies will continue to cook once they are removed from the oven, so let them cool completely.
This helps the bottom of the cookies not brown as fast. If you prefer a crispier bottom, you can place them directly on a baking sheet. Lining a baking sheet with parchment paper also makes clean up a breeze!
