Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Cookies

IMG_E860BBBCE449-1

The name says it all. It’s everyone’s favorite cookie (chocolate chip) but with the addition of not walnuts, not pecans, not peanuts….but hazelnuts! I’m not entirely sure why we Americans seem to under-utilize the crunchy, buttery, and sweet nut. They’re so popular in Europe.

If you’re familiar with Nutella, then you probably already know that hazelnut is the base. AKA it’s a beloved nut. But if you don’t like Nutella, it doesn’t mean you won’t like hazelnuts. They add great crunch and a nutty flavor to your already delicious chocolate chip cookie. A little sea salt sprinkled on top really brings all the flavors together. In other words, this cookie is worth baking over and over again.

Oh, also, there are (optional) toffee pieces in these cookies. So another great reason to get baking – stat! A certain Valentine may be very happy if you whip these up now, just in time for Valentine’s Day! 😉
