Chocolate Hazelnut Cookie Sandwiches
- 2 ½ cups all purpose flour
- ½ cup regular oats
- 1 cup brown sugar
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- ½ stick of butter
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup melted chocolate chips
- ¼ cup butter
- 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
- 2 tsp ground hazelnuts
Preheat the oven to 350F. Prepare a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
In a bowl combine the dry ingredients, the flour, oats, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and cinnamon. In another bowl mix the the butter and eggs. Gradually pour the bowl with the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ones. And stir until no lumps remain.
Scoop one tablespoon of the dough onto the baking sheet and repeat until all the dough is used, leaving 1 inch between each. Make sure you have an even number of cookies made so that all chocolate hazelnut cookie sandwiches have tops and bottoms! Transfer to the oven and cook for about 10 minutes, or until golden-brown. Allow cookies to cool.
To make the chocolate hazelnut filling
In a bowl mix the filling ingredients until well incorporated, add more sugar if needed. Put the sandwiches together with the cookies and the chocolate filling. This is the fun part that kids love!
Pour yourself a glass of cold milk and enjoy these chocolate hazelnut cookie sandwiches. They are a rich and tasty treat!
