Ferrero Rochers are a popular holiday treat so what could be better than a cookie with similar features. Chocolate, nutella, wafers, and nuts; sounds like a combination that calls for a cold glass of milk. I had a lot of fun creating these, and they turned out perfect for our holiday gift baskets. I made mine extra big so you can eat "just one" and not feel guilty (I only wish) but its extremely hard not to eat more than one still. You can make them anysize you want, if you need to make them for little baskets too. I will warn you, these cookies are highly addictive! Happy making, and happy holidays!
What you need:
Box of plain wafer cookies-the size you desire your cookies to be
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 cup nutella
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
bag of your choice of nuts-I used almonds
Labels(paper with words printed on them)
Step 1: Preparing Cookie Dough
In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In another medium bowl combine the butter, 1/2 cup nutella, and sugar. Cream the ingredients together. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until smooth. Using a rubber spatula, stir in the flour mixture until just combined. Refrigerate dough for at least one hour.
