Hazelnut Brownie Cookies

This is a brownie in a cookie form topped with a Nutella icing and hazelnuts.  My grocery store was out of Ferrero Rocher candy a couple weeks ago so I came up with the idea then trying to create a cookie or bar that was somewhat similar. 






Hazelnut Brownie Cookies

In a saucepan, melt together and allow to slightly cool ~

1/2 cup butter
4 oz unsweetened chocolate baking squares
1 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Beat together in a large bowl ~

4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Gradually mix in these dry ingredients ~

1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups flour

Stir in the melted chocolate mixture and make use it's completely blended.  Scoop out cookie dough in 1" balls and bake for 10 minutes at 350°.  Allow to cool.


Nutella Icing ~

1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup Nutella
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 tbsp. milk

Blend all the ingredients together and frost the cookies.  Sprinkle chopped hazeltnuts on top of the icing.
