I can’t believe Thanksgiving is this week. Where did this year go? Is everyone ready for turkey day? I can’t wait because I have been craving our family favorite cranberry salad and cranberry muffins with butter sauce. . . .sooo delicious!
While we were in Italy, I bought a milk chocolate bar with hazelnuts one day. It was so good, I bought several more during our trip. I loved the friends we were with because the other wives did the same thing. We just kept them in our purses and would pull them out and share. Like we really needed those chocolate bars with all the gelato we were eating, but that’s beside the point.
After we got home I found myself wanting/craving those dang chocolate bars with hazelnuts, so naturally I bought me some to stash away in my cupboard. I pulled a couple out the other day and decided to throw them in some cookies. It was a brilliant decision. Normally I am not a fan of nuts in cookies, but it totally worked this time. The hazelnuts are chopped pretty small and when they’re covered in yummy milk chocolate, you almost can’t even tell they’re in the cookies.
Buttery, crispy and chewy and full of chunks of delicious milk chocolate.Print
