Chocolate Hazelnut Cookie Sandwich

Chocolate Hazelnut Cookie Sandwich

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place hazelnuts on a lined baking sheet in a single layer. Roast in over for 10-12 minutes.
  • Remove from over and allow to cool slightly. Transfer to a kitchen towel and roll out nuts to remove most of the skins.
  • Add hazelnuts to a food processor and blend until a butter is formed. Scrape down the sides as needed. Should take 8-10 minutes to come together.
  • Heat chocolate over a double boiler until melted. Set aside.
  • Once hazelnut butter is creamy and smooth add the melted chocolate, sea salt and vanilla. Blend/pulse until well incorporated.
  • Arrange cookies to make sandwiches with one side top down. Spread homemade chocolate hazelnut spread over top of one half of the cookie. Cover with second cookie.
  • Wrap with parchment paper. Seal with tape or twine and it is ready for the lunchbox.
