Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Cookie Recipe

Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Roll-out Cookies

Have fun with this special Halloween cookie flavor!  I made the chocolate cookie dough extra dark, and paired it with an orange icing. Try out this haunting new flavor!


  • 4 1/2 C flour
  • 2 C cocoa powder (I use Cookie Cowgirl Dark Cocoa Blend from Truly Mad Plastics to get that beautiful black cookie dough.  It is sooooo fudge-y!)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 C butter, softened
  • 2 C sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp hazelnut emulsion


Preheat Oven to 350*

  1. Combine flour, cocoa powder, and salt in a bowl
  2. In mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in egg and emulsion until well combined.
  4. Gradually add the flour mixture at low speed.  Scrape down sides as needed until well combined.

Roll out and cut into desired shapes.  Bake 8 – 10 minutes.


*You can pair these cookies with my royal icing recipe flavored with 1 TBSP of an emulsion or extract.  My favorites are orange, hazelnut, almond or vanilla and they are fantastic!

*My 11 year old Denver likes to do cookie experiments. We threw in some handfuls of mini m&ms into one batch of dough and it was even more chocolate-y!
