Ingredients Needed

Easy Chewy Hazelnut Chocolate Cookies Recipe
  • Butter – Butter adds richness and flavor to the cookies. Softened butter is easier to mix into the dough, resulting in a smooth and creamy texture. Make sure to use unsalted butter so you can control the amount of salt in the recipe.
  • Sugar – Sugar sweetens the cookies and helps them brown in the oven. A combination of white and light brown sugar adds both sweetness and depth of flavor. Alternatively, raw turbinado sugar can be used for a more natural and less refined sweetness.
  • Egg – Egg gives the cookies structure and binding power, helping them hold their shape and texture. It also adds moisture to the dough, resulting in a soft and chewy cookie.
  • Vanilla – Vanilla extract enhances the flavor of the cookies and adds a pleasant aroma. Use pure vanilla extract for the best taste.
  • Flour – Provides structure to the cookies and ensures the dough is the right consistency. All-purpose flour works well in this recipe.
  • Baking Soda – Baking soda helps the cookies rise and keeps them from spreading too much. Use the right amount for perfectly puffy cookies.
  • Salt – A pinch of salt balances out the sweetness in the cookies and enhances the flavor of all the ingredients.
  • White Chocolate – Adds richness and creaminess to the cookies. Use high-quality white chocolate for the best taste.
  • Mini-chocolate chips – Add bursts of chocolate flavor and texture to the cookies. They balance out the sweetness of the white chocolate and complement the nuttiness of the hazelnuts. Feel free to use regular chocolate chips or omit them altogether if desired.
