gina depalma’s bittersweet chocolate and hazelnut cookies

gina depalma’s dolce italiano is one of the many cookbooks i have yet to study properly. however i always have this habit of skimming through the book – and one recipe that caught my eye – bittersweet chocolate and hazelnut cookies.

if you love nutella, you will love these cookies – they are delicious and rich without being overly sweet. these are not cookies that you can munch as snacks (too rich) but they made great after meal dessert (warm cookies, a scoop of vanilla ice cream – you get the picture).

the key to making these cookies is using quality chocolate and cocoa powder – i used valrhona 70% bittersweet chocolate and their cocoa powder. its divine!

and of course, these babies were wiped out on the day i baked them.
