Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 38 minutes
Servings 20


For the cookies

  • ½ cup unsalted butter softened
  • ½ cup chocolate hazelnut spread
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt

For the Garnish

  • cup granulated sugar
  • 10 chocolate hazelnut candies such as Ferrero Rocher, halved


  • Preheat oven to 375°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter and chocolate hazelnut spread on medium-high speed until incorporated. Add both sugars, vanilla, and egg; mix well.
  • Next, add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix on low speed until just combined, and then medium speed until completely combined.
  • For sugar coating, use a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop dough one ball at a time into a shallow dish with ⅓ cup granulated sugar. Roll dough balls in sugar and place on the prepared baking sheets about two inches apart.
  • Bake 7 to 8 minutes, or until slightly firm around the edges. Remove from oven and immediately press one half of a chocolate hazelnut candy into the center of each cookie. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
