We’ve officially relocated to DC! It seems fitting as I start this next stage in my life that the 2Teaspoons website also embarks on its own. I’ve spent the past few weeks giving the site a major makeover. New theme, new recipe index, new about me…definitely explore the site. I’ll be adding more as I go!

Triple Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies - 2Teaspoons

Today I’m sharing a recipe for fresh baked cookies, a fantastic treat for welcoming someone to a new neighborhood. These cookies pack a triple punch with triple chocolate, triple hazelnut, and triple cookie-welcoming goodness…Triple Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies

Chocolate and hazelnut how I love thee; let me count the ways:

1) This chewy, soft cookie dough is loaded with chopped hazelnuts and chocolate chips

2) The dough is then rolled around a chocolate hazelnut truffle giving each cookie a fantastic chocolate hazelnut candy surprise center!

3) Each cookie is then baked until soft and chewy, drizzled with chocolate and sprinkled with chopped hazelnuts 🙂

Author 2Teaspoons

Ingredients

COOKIES:
  • 2 ¼ cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoon cornstarch
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter melted 1 ½ sticks
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips
  • ½ cup chopped hazelnuts
  • 12-16 chocolate hazelnut truffles*
TOPPINGS:
  • 1 cup 4 ounces by weight semi-sweet or milk chocolate
  • ½ cup chopped hazelnuts

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl melt butter in microwave. Whisk in white and brown sugar until completely dissolved. Whisk in egg and egg yolk. Stir in vanilla and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl combine flour, baking soda, cornstarch, and salt. Pour butter-sugar-egg mixture over flour mixture, and gently stir until dough forms. Fold in hazelnuts and chocolate chips. If dough is too sticky refrigerate for 15-30 minutes.
  4. Using your hands, roll dough into 12-16 ¼ cup dough balls. Flatten and insert truffle. Wrap dough around truffle and roll in hands to seal dough. Arrange on cookie sheet 4 inches apart. Bake until just set, about 15 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheet for 10 minutes, then cool completely on a wire rack.
  5. Once cookies are cool, melt chocolate until it’s thin enough to drizzle, about 1 minute in the microwave on 50% power. Drizzle, use a frosting bag, or just spread chocolate on cookies. Sprinkle with hazelnuts and enjoy!
