Dark Chocolate and Hazelnut Cookies

This post first appeared on Bread Booze Bacon where I am a guest contributor.

Dreamy fall nights and lingering after dinner are two of my favorite things. After a long day, I love slowing down and having dinner outside on the patio. Our weather is perfect for this right now. Making a batch of cookies that the kids will love keep us out there just a bit longer. This is when the details of their day come spilling out. I hold my breath watching them make each other laugh and listening to them giggle. They look at each other with admiration and love, just for a few minutes. I breathe in the night air and make a memory out of the moment.

The kids love when I try a new cookie recipe. They are usually my best critics and keep me on my toes about making things that are tasty!

If you have someone in your life that is a huge fan of dark chocolate and hazelnut candy, this is the cookie for them!
