For the Hazelnut Cookies:

150g unsalted butter, room temperature

100g light brown sugar

100g white caster sugar

1 medium egg + 1 extra egg yolk

250g self raising flour

45g Whittard Hazelnut Hot Chocolate

¼ tsp ground nutmeg

½ tsp ground cinnamon

0.5 tsp salt

50g milk chocolate chips

50g chopped roasted hazelnuts

For the Hazelnut topping:

3 tbsp Whittard Hazelnut Hot Chocolate Powder

3 tbsp icing sugar

1-2 tbsp boiling water

25g whole hazelnuts, sliced in half

For the Hazelnut Cookies and Topping:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C fan / 200°C conventional. Line a large baking sheet with baking paper.
  2. Beat the butter and two sugars together until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and extra egg yolk until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, stir the self raising flour, Whittard Hazelnut Hot Chocolate powder, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt together. Tip into the butter mixture and fold everything together to make the cookie dough.
  4. Add the chocolate chips and chopped roasted hazelnuts and fold into the dough.
  5. Scoop up heaped tablespoons of dough and drop them onto the baking sheet, leaving plenty of space between each so they have room to spread out. This recipe makes 12 cookies in total, so you’ll need to bake them in batches.
  6. Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes until firm on the outside and set on top. TIP: run a large round cutter around the cookies to scoot them into a perfectly round shape and make them slightly thicker. Leave to cool for 10 minutes on the baking tray then move to a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. For the hazelnut topping, mix the Whittard Hazelnut Hot Chocolate powder, icing sugar and boiling water together to make a thick chocolate icing. If you find that the icing is too thin, add a bit more icing sugar. On the other hand, if the icing is too thick, add a drop more water.
  8. Drizzle the icing into the middle of each cookie and sprinkle the sliced hazelnuts on top.
