Santa brought us lots and lots of Ferrero Rocher chocolates in our stockings. It’s one chocolate I just can’t resist. Today I’m sharing delicious Ferrero Rocher Cookies.
We have boxes and boxes of these chocolates, which I’m not complaining about.
Santa and my husband know I like them a lot. They are great with a cup of tea in the afternoon.
We had so many I thought they’d be fun to use in cookies. I have this baking tradition with the boys, when it’s a snow day, we turn on the oven and bake to our hearts’ content. I like to think that all the brownies and cookies I consume on these days don’t count, like holiday money in other countries, it’s fun money 😉
The first time I ever had a Ferrero Rocher is in England. Biting into one takes me back to my uni days or Christmas-time at Luke’s parents house. Have you ever tried one? They have a hazelnut in the center, surrounded by a chocolate hazelnut spread and coated in a chocolate shell encrusted in hazelnuts. If you love hazelnuts, you’ll love these cookies!
Ferrero Rocher Cookies
- 1 Cup butter, softened
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 eggs
- 2 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 Cup light brown sugar
- 1/2 Cup white sugar
- 16 Ferrero Rocher chocolates, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 farenheit.
In your mixer, beat butter, eggs, sugars and vanilla. Beat until creamy.
In a separate bowl, sift flour, salt and baking soda. Add this mixture slowly to the above wet mixture. Make sure to add flour mixture slowly or it can make quite a mess.
Chop the Ferrero Rocher up and add to the batter. Once comined chill in the fridge for at least an hour.
Either use a reusable baking mat or baking spray on baking sheets. Place rounded tablespoons of the batter on baking sheet. Bake in oven for 10-12 minutes. You want the edges to be golden brown.
Allow to cool on a cooling rack.
Serve with milk or tea!
They are lovely when warm, the chocolate is all melty.
We all oooohed and ahhhhed over these.
A real crowd pleaser here and a perfect way to spend a stormy day.
They’d also be nice to make for your Valentine, all boxed up with ribbons. You might like these chocolates we made a few years back, click here.
