32 cookies


  • 2 cup quick-cooking rolled oats

  • cup finely chopped toasted hazelnuts (filberts)

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup sugar

  • ¼ cup milk

  • 2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 2 tablespoon butter

  • 2 tablespoon chocolate-hazelnut spread

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. In a large bowl stir together oats, hazelnuts, and salt; set aside.

  2. In a large saucepan combine sugar, milk, cocoa powder, and butter. Bring to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Stir in chocolate-hazelnut spread and vanilla. Remove from heat. Stir in oat mixture until combined.

  3. Shape chocolate mixture into 1-inch balls (if mixture doesn't hold shapes well, let stand a few minutes to firm up). Place balls on a large cookie sheet. Chill about 1 hour or until firm.


If the chocolate mixture starts to set up as you form the balls, heat the chocolate mixture in the microwave on 100% power (high) for 30 seconds.
