I love baking! It is one of the ways I show my love (just ask my husband). One of my goals is to become more creative and come up with new recipes to try! This last week I attempted to make some roasted hazelnut and sea salt chocolate chunk cookies. They turned out pretty good and my family was happy for a yummy treat during a rainy weekend!
The recipe is pretty simple. You start out with a basic cookie dough recipe.
I highly recommend using a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer if you have one. First you are going to want to mix together the melted butter, both the brown and granulated sugar, vanilla, and the eggs.
Next mix in the flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Mix until everything is combined.
Leave dough in bowl and place in the refridgerator for 30 minutes.
While dough is chilling prepare your chocolate chunks. So I typically use plain old chocolate chips but I wanted to change it up. My husband loves these chocolate bars so I was wondering what how they would taste when added to a cookie.
I choose the Roasted Hazelnut and the Dark Chocolate with sea salt. All I did was roughly chop the chocolate up into chuncks.
Line a cookie tray with parchament paper and take your dough out. I split the dough in half. Fold the chocolate chunks into the dough with a sputala.
Put the completed dough back in the refridgerator for another 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375. After 30 minutes roll dough or use a cookie scoop to form cookies.
Bake in oven for 12 minutes. Remove and let cool for 10-20 minutes!
