Chewy Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies

Chewy chocolate hazelnut cookies are great Christmas cookies with freshly roasted nuts. Or make them year round as a special treat with chocolate chips.

Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies

Hazelnut chocolate chip cookies use toasted nuts that bring a nice crunch and texture to the dish. Add white and semi sweet chocolate into the mix for added YUM. If you’re looking for a new treat to add to your dessert buffet for the holidays, this may be your fave. (affiliate links present)

Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Cookies

We shared with you last week how to roast hazelnuts, pretty easy right?? You can do this in the oven, air fryer or in a skillet. Only takes a few minutes and not only tastes amazing fresh, but makes your house smell out of this world. You can start with this or just buy them bagged and ready to go.

Maybe you are hosting a Christmas cookie exchange this year and want to offer something super festive. What is a holiday without a bowl of mixed shelled nuts and a cracker nearby?? I mean that was always out when I was younger at my grandparents house. I don’t know about you.

There are some things we only make during the holidays. This cookie, our egg nog cookie cups, and homemade gingerbread dough. I mean there isn’t a reason why we couldn’t make a batch in February too but it just isn’t the same without relatives nearby and a tree up in your house right?? You’ll need;

  • 1 1/4 cup toasted hazelnuts roasted and crushed
  • Butter softened or room temperature
  • White granulated sugar
  • Brown sugar
  • Egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • All purpose flour
  • Baking soda
  • Sea salt
  • 3/4 c white chocolate chips

We use some mini semi sweet or milk chocolate chips for inside and you can melt chocolate chips in microwave to drizzle on the top too. The duo makes the whole dish pretty and gets that flavor into every single bite this way.

If you’re from the Pacific Northwest you might have a tree in your backyard, OMG I so want one! If not around late October you can typically find barrels at the store to buy. Grab a bag and buy about a big scoop full. You can enjoy the leftovers as a healthy snack, bonus.

Start off by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F. Crush shelled and roasted nuts to smaller chunks. If they aren’t shelled and roasted you can shell, lay on baking sheet and roast for 12 minutes until lightly browned, then crush when cooled.

  • Add chopped hazelnuts (set aside 1⁄2 cup), in small saucepan, melt 2 tbsp of your butter. Combine melted butter and remaining hazelnuts in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • In medium bowl with a paddle attachment (if possible), cream 7 tbsp butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla until fluffy. Stir in hazelnut and butter mixture. Set aside.
  • In another small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Add flour mixture to butter mixture filled bowl. Stir to combine and then add in remaining hazelnuts. Stir in white chocolate chips and 1/4 c of your semi sweet.
  • Use a small cookie scoop or spoon to place cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes baking time or until lightly golden browned on edges and middle is not longer wet.
  • Place cookies on a wire rack (on sheet, do not remove) to cool.

Melt remaining semi sweet in microwave in 30 second increments stirring in between until smooth, then drizzle over the top with a fork.

Roasted Hazelnut Cookies

The first thing we made with these a few years ago were these crispy hazelnut cookies, totally different from these. Instead of fluffy and chewy these are more like flat biscuits but great with a cup of coffee for sure.

You can tweak these to your liking. If you like a great dark chocolate dessert you can just use that flavor of chips only and skip the white. Or use those inside with melted white to drizzle over the top. Want to make these into something larger? Put a scoop of ice cream or frosting in between 2 of them for sandwiches.

Do you have to chill cookie dough?

You don’t HAVE to but it will help them from spreading out so much. The warmer your batter is the less fluffy they will become. If you want them to rise and peak up, cover the bowl and chill for 30 minutes in the fridge before scooping on to your baking sheet.

Will refrigerating cookies keep them fresh

For longer, yes but it will dry them out. To keep them as moist as possible you want them to cool, store in a freezer bag and set on your countertop. The fridge will prolong their life from a few days to a few weeks but every day that passes will dry them out further. Warming in the microwave will liven them up but enjoying within 2-3 days is best.
