When you want to be a kid, but you’re an adult and you want cookies so you upgrade to this awesomeness that portrays you fancier than you really are. – my life story!
Hey everyone, this isn’t going to be a long post but an exciting and delicious one. Today’s blogpost of hazelnut and chocolate chip cookies is an passive aggressive atonement ode to being a kid while still being an adult. It’s one of my favorite things to do since I’ve accepted the older I get the less mature I get as well. Taking a rough life easy is what adulthood is all about. So take that world!
I found these hazelnut chocolate bars at IKEA, my favorite place in the world! They sell them in the check out lane, which you would think that as a business major I would know it’s a ploy to make you spend extra money as an “oh look, it’s only $0.99 USD for each if you buy three”, but I still bought three and it’s okay because after days of wondering what I would do with them besides eat the whole lot of them plain, I decided on cookies. Winner, winner, chicken dinner!….but cookies for dessert.
Look at the size of those things!
Jumbo cookies are my favorite, I don’t know why, but they are. I falsely truths to myself and say I feel a bit fuller and a little less guilty eating 3 large ones rather than eating 12 little ones, plus it disappears easier in my apartment if there looks like fewer ones, but you should know it makes about 18 to 20 cookies if you’re using a regular size cookie scooper. EXTRA, EXTRA! If you just don’t like hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts and pecans also go very well with chocolate; nuts and chocolate are basically best friends, and in this recipe if you don’t have this specific type of chocolate and you can’t find hazelnut chocolate anywhere else, you can just use plain hazelnuts and chocolate chips all the same no problem. The alteration is in the downloadable recipe.
A LITTLE SALT! I love sprinkling a little salt on all my sweet things…..and savory things. I’m aware that high cholesterol is in my future, but geeze what salt can do to food is incredible. The type of salt you want to use is a fine sea salt, which you can find at any supermarket for about $4 USD for a large amount of salt. Ta-Ta-For-Now: well like I said above, a fairly short post, but the pictures are gorgeous and minimalistic to me! I feel like I’m starting to get the hand of this picture thing with my new camera and my hand model is completely adorable! She’s my roommate and always willing to put clothes on and get in the shot, thanks again my little nugget! Enjoy this recipe! xx
