Chocolate Hazelnut Blossoms


  • Author: Jenna Barnard
  • Total Time: 28 minutes + 30 minutes chilling
  • Yield: 23 cookies 1x

Description

These chocolate hazelnut blossoms are inspired by classic peanut butter blossoms! They have a soft Nutella chocolate with a hazelnut truffle on top. Each bite is sweet, crunchy, and so so good!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 cup (110g) unsalted butter, room temp
  • 1/2 cup (100g) light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (160g) Nutella 
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cup (230g) all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar (for rolling)
  • 23 Ferrero Rocher truffles

Instructions

  1. Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl using a hand or stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. About 2-3 minutes on medium-high speed.
  3. Add the Nutella, egg, and vanilla and mix to combine. Scrape down the bowl and mix again.
  4. Pour in the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Use a rubber spatula to scrape down the bowl and incorporate any dry bits that may be left at the bottom.
  5. Cover the bowl and chill for 30 minutes.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Scoop out 2 tablespoon-sized cookie dough balls and roll in the sugar. Place each ball a few inches apart and bake for 8-10 minutes.
  8. While those bake, unwrap the truffles.
  9. Right when the cookies are pulled from the oven, press a truffle into the center of each cookie. The surface should crack. 
  10. Allow the cookies to cool for about 3 minutes on the baking pan, then transfer to a cooling rack and continue to bake the rest of the cookies. Enjoy!
