Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large bowl stir together oats, hazelnuts, and salt; set aside.

  • 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.

  • 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.

To Store:

Layer cookies between sheets of waxed paper in an airtight container; cover. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
